Miso-sesame glazed salmon is out of this world delicious, loaded with Omega-3’s, and is super easy to make. My family loves this!
This salmon recipe is hands down my family’s favorite way to eat this super healthy fish and get a healthy dose of Omega-3’s. My kids aren’t crazy about most salmon recipes, but they love this one.
The marinade has a sweet & spicy Asian flavor that reminds me of a favorite fish entree from P.F. Chang’s. For those who love The Cheesecake Factory’s miso salmon, you must try this recipe; you’ll likely find it far tastier!
Make ahead: Simply prepare the marinade the night before or in the early a.m. the day you plan to cook. Place filets on baking sheet, coat with marinade, and keep in the fridge until just before dinner. While the oven preheats, simply let filets sit at room temperature for half an hour, then bake as directed.
Miso: Miso is a Japanese staple that can be found in the refrigerated section of most stores. Miso is fermented soy, rice or barely. The most common misos are white and red, with white having the sweetest, mildest flavor. White is what I use for this recipe.
Salmon: The best salmon for this recipe is wild caught coho or sockeye. Farm raised Atlantic salmon has a high water count that doesn’t crisp up or hold together as well during the cooking process. Sockeye filets are firmer and hold their shape nicely.
