Caramelized Miso Salmon Recipe

A honey-sweetened, ginger, garlic, miso and soy sauce marinade creates a crisp and caramelized crust after a quick oven roasting. This meal is simple and quick to make with little active time.

This just might be the easiest, most flavorful salmon you will ever make. Create a honey-sweetened, ginger, garlic, miso and soy sauce marinade which creates a nice crisp and caramelized crust after roasting. Once you cut into your salmon filet you end up with lovely juicy and tender meat. It’s almost like a piece of candy melting in your mouth.

The marinade is so easy to make. Baking salmon is really easy and requires little hands-on effort. Your baking time can vary depending on how thick your salmon filet is. The standard rule of thumb calls 10 minutes per inch of thickness. And that’s the secret to an extremely juice and flaky salmon.

I discovered that I like this recipe far more if I used a thinner salmon filet. That means more crust and more flavor.

The recipe is also perfect to serve to guests. You can of course marinated the fish overnight. You will just spend 1 minute in the kitchen to roast your salmon and once it’s in the oven your hands and kitchen is free for other things and enjoying time with your friends. I really like to serve this fish with some spinach, which is also prepared and cooked in no time.

Step by Step Guide to Making Crispy Garlic-Miso Glazed Salmon


  1. Prepare the Marinade: In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, miso paste, ginger, and garlic until well combined.

  2. Marinate the Salmon: Place the salmon filet in a Ziplock bag. Pour the marinade over the salmon, seal the bag, and ensure the filet is well coated. Refrigerate and marinate for at least 30 minutes, preferably overnight.


  3. Prepare for Cooking: Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Create a ‘boat’ out of aluminum foil or line a baking pan with foil.


  4. Sear the Salmon: Heat a heavy pan with a small amount of peanut oil over high heat. Once hot, sear the top of the salmon for 30 seconds to 1 minute until a crust forms.


  5. Bake the Salmon: Transfer the seared salmon to the aluminum foil, crust side up. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, basting with sauce halfway through.


  6. Reduce the Sauce: Pour the remaining marinade into a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then simmer for about 5 minutes until the sauce is reduced.


Recipe Notes:

  • Adjust searing time based on your pan and stove; check after 30 seconds to avoid over-crisping.
  • Ensure the salmon is marinated well for the best flavor.

  • Looks and sounds wonderful! On my “must cook” list.
    The taste will be exactly like I get in my local sushi restaurant.
    Thanks for your time to post. You have a lucky husband.






  • Thank you for this recipe! The salmon was cooked perfectly with crispy bits and the marinade was sweet and delicious. Would absolutely recommend!






  • I made the salmon tonight and it was wonderful. The salmon was moist and medium rare the way I like it and the crust was sweet and salty, a perfect combination. Thank you for an easy and delicious recipe.

  • My fillets were a little over half an inch each. I baked them (without searing in the pan first) in the oven for about 6 minutes on 425, then broiled them for about a minute and a half (I have a gas oven that takes a little longer to broil than most electric ovens). I was sure to keep an eye on the fillets to make sure they didn’t overcook. They were perfectly delicious! Thank you for this recipe.






  • This looks really delicious. Since I am still new to eating salmon I have been looking for different ways to fix this type of fish. I am not much on ginger though. Can I maybe substitute something else for the ginger?
    I am going to pin this and try it .

    • I am wondering if anyone made this in an air fryer and the results. I’ve been making all of my other salmon recipes in the air fryer – so good. Also what is the min amount of honey to use. Sounds too sweet (and too much sugar) for me. Picture looks amazing.






  • Absolutely delicious !!!! It came out as I was hoping just like the posted photo! Thank you for sharing ! Definitely recommended this recipe.

  • This is my son’s favorite dish. I’ve made it many times and never fails. I especially lie it because it’s so easy to make and very flavorful. Thank you for sharing!






  • I’m new to cooking fish and I’ve made this several times now. My daughter said it’s restaurant menu quality! I adjust seasonings to my taste; more ginger, red miso & garlic. Delicious – Thank you!






  • Just made it tonight,….I used some of the marinade and sauteed bok choy and spinach. Used that as veggies with it and it was awesome!!!!!






  • Made this for a dinner party and it was an enormous hit. definitely be making this again.
    I served it on a bed of rice and with a dollop of wasabi mayo on top






  • The cooking time is too long – put the salmon in a hot heavy pan for a minute you will essentially cremate the skin. Should be made a bit clearer that you may need less than 30 seconds to sear and crisp the skin
