Grilled Salmon with Miso Glaze


This is another easy grilled salmon marinated and served with a quick Miso Glaze. 
This my idea of fast food on a busy night.

You will need:

Miso Glaze
  • 2 pieces of salmon (wild if you can get it)
  • 2 tbsp miso paste 
  • 2 tbsp orange juice
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp mirin (Japanese sweetened Sake- avail in any grocery store)
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
Topping 
  • grated lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • fresh ground pepper


Step 1: add all ingredients to a small pan and on medium heat stir until miso is dissolved and ingredients are incorporated. 


Step 2: drizzle fish with olive oil, a bit of grated lemon zest and fresh pepper. Marinate for 30 minutes before grilling fish.


Step 3: heat grill to medium/high heat. Put fish on hot grill with the skin side down and close lid. Grill for 4 minutes until skin is crispy and easy lifts. Flip and grill for 2 more minutes. Serve with more glaze and your favourite grilled veggies. I have partially cooked some carrots and then tossed in olive oil. I grilled the asparagus and carrots along with the fish. I have also skewered some shrimp and brushed with the same glaze. The timing was the same for all items so it made for a quick dinner.
