Miso glazed salmon
Skill level: Easy peasy
Miso glazed salmon is a really simple Asian-inspired dish that's so easy to make. Salmon goes great with a sweet and savoury type glaze, which is just what this miso paste adds to this recipe. This makes a really speedy dinner as it's ready in only 20 minutes and is quite a lot like a stir-fry, so it's perfect served with greens like Tenderstem broccoli, mangetout, pak choi or whatever else you've got in the fridge. You can just as easily have this dish with steamed rice if you don't want noodles.
- 2 salmon fillets
- 30g white miso paste
- 1½tbsp dark soy sauce
- 3tbsp honey
- 1tsp sesame oil
- 1 lime
- Noodles and stir-fried greens, to serve
You can just as easily make this dish on the barbecue - plus it adds an extra smokiness to the recipe.
Marinate the salmon fillets in a mix of the miso paste with the dark soy sauce, the honey, sesame oil and the juice and zest of 1 lime.
Remove and sear the salmon for 3 mins on both sides in a hot pan, then add the marinade for the last min of cooking time. Serve over noodles and stir-fried greens.
