Broiled Miso Salmon, I’m a little obsessed with this dish (my favorite fish!). It’s perfectly charred on the edges with crisp skin and the sweet miso marinade is to die for!

It also happens to be a super easy dinner – marinade it overnight with 3 ingredients, then broil it the next day, it’s ready in under 10 minutes! I served this with yesterday’s Asian chopped salad but this is also great with rice, quinoa or even cauliflower “fried rice”.

White miso (fermented soybean paste) will keep for several months in the refrigerator. It’s also great used in soups, salad dressings and marinades.  If you’re not a fan of salmon, this would also work great with black cod fillets or Arctic Char.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound wild salmon, skin-on, cut into 4 equal portions
  • 1/4 cup white miso, available at amazon, or Asian, gourmet markets

  1. I cooked this on the grill and it was delicious!

  2. Tina:  Please reconcile the comment “best if overnight” with “ Fish can develop an unpleasant texture if marinated too long. Keep the salmon in the marinade for no longer than 30 minutes.” Doesn’t the salmon develop an unpleasant texture?

  3. Confusing instructions. In one place you write to marinate no longer than 30 minutes. In another, it’s 6 hours to overnight? Hoping the 30 minutes Is correct because that’s what I’m about to do. Please fix.

    • Best if over night

      • Am I reading this post wrong. You state to not marinate salmon longer than 30 minutes because it will develop an unpleasant texture but the recipe says to marinate 6 hours? Confused….

      • Overnight for salmon or other fish?I read it as 30 minutes for salmon, overnight for other fish, but wanted to verify! ISorry! Still confused 🙂

  4. My husband is NOT a fish lover, so this was a risk – a risk that paid off! He said it was OUTSTANDING!
    Thanks so much! (btw – made it in the air fryer, per your recommendation 400deg for 7 min. I had preheated the air fryer so I think I could have taken it out at 6, but it was still awesome!

  5. Can I use miso soup instead of paste?

  6. This was amazing! Best salmon recipe to date. We made your asian salad with it and then white rice and tossed it all together on our plates. So good!

  7. Just had this tonight. OMG! So good!
