Miso Wild Salmon with Lime-Ginger Glaze

Created and presented by Rebecca Katz

Serves 4

3 tablespoons white miso 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4 cup mirin
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil or organic macadamia nut oil
4 (6-ounce) wild Alaskan King Salmon fillets
2 tablespoons cilantro chopped for garnish

  • 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
