Costco Product Recipe
Salmon is an extraordinary fish, especially when it’s fresh and wild caught. The nutritional benefits from the high concentration of vitamins, nutrients, and Omega-3 fatty acids justifies multiple servings every week*. It can be hard to find fresh, wild caught salmon during spawning season, but you can usually find frozen wild salmon in stores. Either way, Maximum Living Miso Salmon is a sure bet to satisfy those seafood cravings any time of year!
* Unlike many other fish, wild salmon are low in mercury, and are safer to consume regularly
Spray vegetable or Olive oil to coat aluminum foil
½ cup Mirin
2 tbsp Sake
½ cup Red miso paste
2 tbsp Low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp Honey
1 ½ tbsp Fresh ginger, diced
1 lb Wild caught salmon, skin-on, bones-removed (Costco has a great fresh fish selection)
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
Cover your broil pan with foil then spray the foil with either vegetable or olive oil, then set aside. Loosely cover the top of a plate with plastic wrap and set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk mirin, sake, red miso paste, soy sauce, honey and diced ginger all together until thoroughly mixed.
Rinse your salmon and check for any pin bones that need to be removed. Pat dry and place on plate with plastic wrap, flesh side up. Make a shallow diagonal cut into the salmon with a sharp knife every two inches.
Brush salmon with miso mixture to completely cover then wrap in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 1 hour. 15 minutes before ready turn on oven to broil. Next remove from refrigerator, unwrap and place fish on broil pan flesh side up.
Salmon should cook only for about 12 minutes until a golden crust has formed on top. The center of the salmon should be opaque. Check the salmon at about the 6-minute mark to see how it is cooking in your oven so you can correctly gage cooking time, never over cook.
When salmon is finished, remove and place on platter of greens, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve.
If you want to add a little extra flavor you can always sprinkle with finely chopped scallions and fresh orange zest!
Enjoy and remember, You Can Do It!
