Whisk together the miso, lime juice, mirin, ginger, and sesame oil in a mixing bowl. Put the salmon in a baking dish, pour half the marinade over the salmon, and turn to coat well. Reserve the remaining marinade.
Marinate the salmon in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Place the salmon in a baking dish with its marinade and 1/4 cup of water. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes, or a few minutes longer if the fillets are thick. DO NOT OVER COOK!
In a saucepan, heat the reserved marinade over medium heat until it starts bubbling.
When the salmon is cooked, pour the marinade over the fillets, sprinkle with cilantro and serve immediately on a platter or individual plates.
