Broiled Salmon With Miso
prep: 10 minutes
total: 20 minutes
Be sure to spread just a very thin layer of miso paste across the salmon.
Too much will overpower the clean flavor of the fish.
What you want instead is a rich, salty crust to the salmon.
We prefer a lighter white miso, but a darker paste will work just as well.
2 thick salmon fillets
2 teaspoons miso paste
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon canola oil
Preheat the broiler to high and place a baking sheet on a rack 6-8 inches from the heat source.
Dab the salmon with a paper towel to dry. Season with pepper on both sides.
Spread a very thin layer of miso on the tops of the filets.
Lightly oil the preheated baking sheet.
Place the fish on the baking sheet, miso-side up,
broil until the salmon is slightly translucent in the thickest part, 6-8 minutes.
