How to make miso salmon

  1. Make the miso glaze: In a small saucepan, simmer together the mirin, rice vinegar, miso, brown sugar and soy sauce for 5 minutes. Remove the heat then strain into a measuring jug and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
  2. Marinate the salmon: Pour the miso glaze over the salmon then marinade for at least 30 minutes but ideally overnight in the fridge.
  3. Make the noodles: In a large pan, saute the spring onion and garlic in a splash of sesame oil until fragrant. Pour in the soy sauce, vinegar and brown sugar and add 4 tablespoons of water. Allow the sauce to simmer until the sugar has dissolved. Add the cooked noodles then toss until coated in the sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  4. Cook the salmon: Transfer the salmon to a parchment or foil lined baking dish. Bake for 7-10 minutes until the salmon is caramelized and just cooked. Remove from the oven then serve over the noodles with coriander/cilantro, sesame seeds, spring onion and chillies.

What to serve with miso salmon

I love serving the caramelized salmon with noodles but steamed rice or greens are a great idea too.

Can I make this ahead?

This is recipe is great for making ahead. The salmon can be marinated for 24 hours and cooked salmon can be kept covered in the fridge for up to 3 days.
