Miso is a new ingredient for me to cook with. I watched Tiffani Thiessen on the cooking channel use it in this salmon dish and thought I’d give it a try. I had to do a little research since I had no clue as to what I was looking for. I did have difficulty finding it at first but found it at Whole Foods. Miso Master Organics is the brand I purchased. Miso is made from fermented soybeans and is a thick-like substance. The most common use is for Miso soup, but it adds a unique burst of flavor to salad dressings, sauces and marinades, and vegetable dishes. In this dish, salmon is glazed with a sauce of honey, lime juice, miso, soy sauce and garlic then grilled till flaky. I found this only took around 5 or so minutes for mine so make sure to keep an eye on them. Enjoy!
1/2 C. honey
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp. red miso
2 Tbsp. soy sauce (I used coconut aminos)
5 large cloves garlic, grated
2-lbs. salmon fillet, rinsed and patted dry
1 bunch scallions
1 Tbsp. oil of choice
Salt and pepper
Preheat a grill to 350 degrees over medium-low heat. Combine the honey, lime juice, miso, soy sauce and garlic in a small bowl and blend well. Place the salmon on the cedar plank and brush with the sauce to coat. Set the plank on the grill, over and cook until the salmon just flakes with a fork, 20 to 25 minutes.
Toss the scallions in the oil and season with salt and pepper. When the salmon has about 5 more minutes to cook, add the scallions to the grill and cook them until charred and softened, Remove the salmon from grill, brush with more sauce and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve with the charred scallions.
