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:
- 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
- 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.
