I'm a little obsessed with this salmon (my favorite fish!). It's perfectly charred on the edges with crisp skin and the sweet miso marinade is to die for!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound wild salmon (skin-on, cut into 4 equal portions)
  • 1/4 cup white miso (available at amazon, or Asian, gourmet markets)
  • 1/2 cup mirin
  • 2 garlic cloves (crushed)
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 scallion (green parts only, thinly sliced)

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine miso, mirin, garlic and ginger.
  • Pour 1/4 of the marinade in a shallow dish or glass pie plate, place fish flesh-side down, and top with remaining marinade.¬† Place in refrigerator and allow to marinade at least 6 hours or up to overnight.
  • Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking.¬†Preheat oven to broil high.
  • Transfer fish to a sheet pan lined with foil. Discard excess marinade.
  • Place fish on the second rack from the top and broil 6-7 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  • If you wish to serve the fish without the skin, carefully slide a fish spatula between the skin and flesh.
  • Top with scallions and serve.
