Baked Miso Salmon
As lots of you know, I’m NOT a fan of fish, (hence the handful of fish recipes). However, it doesn’t stop me from exploring and experimenting with fish recipes, so when I do find a delicious, worthwhile (in my opinion) recipe to share. I want to shout it from the rooftops. So I’m shouting! This fish is DELECTABLE in fact it was so delicious that one of the pieces didn’t even make it into the photo which is a pretty bad one, but what this photo lacks in finesse, this sweet and savoury dish makes up for in flavour!
And the best part? It only takes 13 minutes to whip this dinner up. One minute to put the marinade together, 12 minutes to bake 30 seconds to devour.
3 piece of salmon fillets
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 ½ tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon shao shing (chinese cooking wine)
2 ½ tablespoons miso paste
1 tablespoon honey or brown sugar (I used honey)
Pre-heat the oven to 200C
You want the oven to be nice and hot when you put the salmon in.
In a bowl, mix all of the marinade ingredients until smooth, add salmon and marinade fillets for 30-40 min no more because miso is quiet salty and it will overpower the taste.
Line baking tray with baking paper, Remove any access marinate from the salmon as miso sauce burns easily (you can use the remaining sauce to stir fry veggies, it’s super tasty). Place marinated salmon on tray and bake for 12 minutes!
