Miso Marinated Salmon

I was reading about miso the other day on NPR and was amazed at how healthy it was and also how many different recipes you could do with it not just miso soup. Here are some cool facts - It is high in manganese, zinc, phosphorus and copper, along with protein and dietary fiber. In fact, one tablespoon of miso carries 2 grams of protein — sort of a "super condiment." - Miso an Ancient Solution to Modern Meals

I saw a great marinate recipe for halibut and also a great salad dressing here is my fish recipe with a few tweaks and with salmon.


  • 2 portions of Wild Alaskan Salmon
  • 2 tablespoon of white miso paste
  • 2 tablespoon of soy sauce 
  • 2 tablespoon of honey
  • a few black sesame seeds
  • a dash of sake 

  1. mix the marinate and soak the salmon in it for 30 minutes to one hour 
  2. then poach in a little olive oil for 10 minutes
  3. serve with Japanese rice and vegetables
  4. enjoy this wonderful and simple meal, with a great depth of flavor

Has anyone got any creative recipes with miso to share?

  1. Yum! Thanks for sharing those facts Rebecca :) I've had a variation of this, but it was Miso Glazed...delicious!

  2. miso soup is delicious and simple to make too! i hear that if you are soy intolerant, you can still prolly eat miso because it is fermented. love the combo of miso and salmon!

  17. Miso can be used in things that aren't soup? Who knew!? Very cool recipe, cant wait to give it a try :)

  18. I like that you used miso to make the marinade for the salmon. I bet it would be great for cod too.

  19. I tried to leave a message yesterday, but on my home computer I couldn't sign in to blogger to leave a message.

    I love miso marinated anything, and it just seems to go so well with salmon. That reminds me...I am almost out of mine I need to pick up another tub of miso.
