Miso-Glazed Salmon Filets for #SundaySupper
I cook pretty often. I save the recipes that I receive from daily email distributions. I have more food magazines than I can count. I own so many cookbooks and refer to countless family recipes.
One thing I’ve never cooked is fish, of any kind. I never had any reason to since I never ate fish. Now, one of my favorites to eat is salmon. The theme of this week’s Sunday Supper is to cook a dish that you never have before, a dish that you’ve been meaning to cook, maybe a dish that intimidates you. For me, salmon is all of the above and with the suggestion from Leslie to make Miso-Glazed Salmon, I signed up for this week’s Sunday Supper.
I read so many recipes and took ideas for them all to create the salmon that I did. I had to go to an Asian grocery for the miso paste, I was surprised at the cost of salmon, I was overall unprepared to create this dish and was running around and adding up the cost of ingredients at 7am yesterday morning.
Nevertheless, I got it done! And it was so much easier than I thought it’d be. The salmon only took me 15 minutes between the prep and the cooking, the sauteed spinach I had as a side took me 5 minutes. What a great, simple choice for a quick dinner.
4 6 oz salmon fillets
2 tbsp miso paste
2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp hot water
2 tsp honey
2 tsp lime juice
1 tsp red pepper flakes
Preheat broiler. In a medium bowl, combine miso paste, soy sauce, brown sugar, hot water, honey, lime juice and red pepper flakes.
Brush mixture on the salmon. Place under broiler for 8 minutes.
The salmon was flakey and tasty and I managed to make it without drying it out! Hurrah!
To pair with the salmon, I decided to sauté some spinach with 2 tbsp butter, 1 shallot, and 2 tsp of lemon juice.
Everything turned out great and I had a tasty lunch along with a new recipe to add to my list. Check out below what the other Sunday Supper participants created this week!
