This sweet and salty miso salmon served over soba noodles is a melt-in-your-mouth, satisfying dish.
I haven’t been spending as much time in the kitchen as I would like to, because when you start renovating and there is still stuff to do outside, your mind wanders, but I have been trying to perfect this amazing salmon recipe, and my oh my, it’s a winner.
It’s slow-cooked in the oven resulting in a melt-in-your mouth fish with a beautiful salty-sweet crust from the maple miso. Amazing!
