  • 1/4 cup sweet white miso paste shiro miso
  • 2 tablespoons Japanese sake
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 4 salmon fillets 4 ounces each


  • In a small bowl, whisk together the miso, sake and mirin. On a plate, spread the miso mixture on all sides of the salmon. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  • Turn oven to broil, set oven rack to 8" below heating element, and preheat until hot.
  • Place salmon fillets on a baking tray lined with parchment or tin foil. Use paper towel to blot away the miso from top of salmon to prevent burning.
  • Broil salmon 10-12 minutes, until flakes easily and is nicely browned on top.


*No time to marinade? Double the miso, sake and mirin measurements. Reserve half of this mixture. Prepare and cook salmon as in recipe. When salmon is just about ready, pour reserved miso mixture into a small sauce pan, whisk in 2 tablespoons of water. Heat over medium heat until bubbling. Pour sauce over salmon to serve.
