Broiled Salmon With Miso




serves 2

prep: 10 minutes
total: 20 minutes

baking sheet


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

  1. Preheat the broiler to high and place a baking sheet on a rack 6-8 inches from the heat source.
  2. Dab the salmon with a paper towel to dry. Season with pepper on both sides.
  3. Spread a very thin layer of miso on the tops of the filets.
  4. Lightly oil the preheated baking sheet.
  5. Place the fish on the baking sheet, miso-side up,
  6. broil until the salmon is slightly translucent in the thickest part, 6-8 minutes.
