Crispy Garlic-Miso Glazed Salmon
Recipe Type: Main
A honey-sweetened, ginger, garlic, miso and soy marinade creates a crisp, caramelized crust after quick roasting. A simple mea with little active time.
  • 500 g (1 lb) salmon filet (without skin)
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1½ tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp miso paste
  • 6 Tbsp honey
  • 4 Tbsp soy sauce
  1. Combine soy sauce, honey, miso paste, ginger and garlic in a bowl and whisk well.
  2. Place marinade and Salmon Filet in a Ziplock bag and refrigerate and marinate everything for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  3. I prepare something looking like a boat out of aluminum foil but of course you can also line a pan with foil.
  4. Preheat a heavy pan with just a tiny bit of peanut oil. Once your pan is extremely hot sear the top of the salmon for about 1 minute or until you have a nice crust.
  5. Immediately transfer your salmon to your prepared aluminum foil boat. Flip salmon so the crisp side is face up.
  6. Bake your salmon in your preheated oven at 180 C (350 F) for 15-20 minutes (depending on thickness). Baste salmon with the sauce halfway through.
  7. Pour marinate out of the Ziplock bag into a sauce pan. Bring sauce over medium high heat to a boil and simmer for about 5 minutes until reduced.
  8. Serve Salmon with reduced sauce.
