Miso marinated salmon filets topped with spring onion condiment is easy enough for a weeknight dinner yet impressive enough for a dinner party and only takes 15 minutes to cook. Simply prepared salmon, with an aromatic spring onion, ginger and toasted almond condiment that’s ready in minutes. Serve this over a bed of rice or alongside some oven baked vegetables for a light tasting meal that’s super healthy.
Marinated in a sweet and savory miso sauce, this recipe makes a delicious weeknight meal. This meal might not be a revelation, but it sure hits the spot. The sharpness of the miso combined with sweet mirin and a touch of sugar work wonderfully with the fish giving it a depth of flavor as it caramelizes in the pan while cooking. The buttery flesh simply melts in your mouth when enjoyed.
Miso makes for a wonderful addition to mix in as a marinade and can be paired with any protein or even brushed on vegetables. It’s rich in vitamins and minerals and adds a salty taste to food. Adding a sweet element into the mix gives your dish the perfect balance so that you can enjoy a wonderfully seasoned meal at home.
Miso tends to burn as it cooks, so it’s usually not recommended to leave the marinade on but rather wipe it off. However that may be the case when baking or cooking foods with a longer cook time like chicken or even baking fish. For this recipe we don’t have to worry about that. Because we’re using salmon and pan-frying our fish, it will cook quicker so the miso will have enough time to caramelize but not burn. It’s perfect because you get that crispy blackened effect on the surface of the flesh and perfectly cooked salmon on the inside. Once you flip the salmon brush a little bit of the marinade on the tops so that you get a beautiful glaze during the final minutes of cooking.
