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!
