Miso-Glazed Salmon Filets for #SundaySupper – The Foodie Patootie

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.

SalmonI 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.

Miso-Glazed SalmonNevertheless, 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.

Miso-Glazed Salmon


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!

    Yayyy!!!! It looks beautiful! I also so appreciate the shout out. Im sorry that you had to run around like a lunatic and spend lots of dough on it…I bet it was so worth it though 🙂

  2. Love the miso glaze on your salmon! Looks incredible!!

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 9:26 am

      Thank you, Jennifer!

  3. Conni @FoodieArmyWife — April 28, 2013 at 9:35 am

    I never like salmon until I moved up here to Alaska and had fresh, straight from the sea salmon. It is SO good – and totally different from what I had before. I loved hooking them and wrestling them to shore, so much fun, and delicious on my plate! 🙂

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 9:26 am

      What a neat story!! I would love to do something like that!

  4. Jen @JuanitasCocina — April 28, 2013 at 10:18 am

    What a perfect piece of fish for your fist! I’d gobble this up!

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 9:26 am

      I definitely did gobble it up 😉

  5. Soni — April 28, 2013 at 10:26 am

    Love miso paste and I bet this Salmon was delicious!!The sweet and salty flavors are one of my favorites!Would love to try it for our dinner 🙂

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 9:25 am

      Yeah, you should! The hint of honey and lime really switched up the flavor profile too.

  6. Leslie — April 28, 2013 at 10:55 am

    Yay!!!! Looks like it turned out absolutely scrumptious! Great color on it from the miso glaze! Thanks so much for the shout out…I’m so glad you made this. Sorry though that you had to run around like a lunatic collecting ingredients. I bet it was worth it 🙂

  7. Family Foodie — April 28, 2013 at 10:58 am

    Salmon is my absolutely favorite fish and it looks like you mastered it perfectly!

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 9:24 am

      Thanks, Isabel! Salmon is definitely my favorite fish also!

  8. Tara — April 28, 2013 at 11:53 am

    That looks so very good and I have not tried miso but hear such great things about it. Thanks for sharing on #SundaySupper.

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 9:24 am

      I loved the miso- such wonderful flavors!! Thank you, Tara!

  9. Diana @GourmetDrizzles — April 28, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    What a yummy recipe! And congrats on success on your first fish 😉

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 9:24 am

      Thank you, Diana!

  10. Renee — April 28, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    The first of many seafood dishes you may cook now that you have conquered your first one. Nice recipe and side with the spinach.

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 9:23 am

      Thanks, Renee! I’m excited to try more!

  11. Lori @ Foxes Love Lemons — April 28, 2013 at 2:33 pm

    What’s funny is that my food bucket list is sort of the OPPOSITE of this post 🙂 I’ve cooked plenty of salmon, but I really want to try using miso at home. But, like you were surprised by the cost of the fish, I was surprised that a container of miso was FOURTEEN DOLLARS at my store. Whoa!

    Beautiful dish. So glad you tackled it!

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 9:20 am

      Haha, that is funny. I know- the salmon and miso are expensive! I didn’t realize what the cost would be!

  12. Salmon is my all time favourite fish. It so easy to prepare. This miso glaze that you added sounds absolutely amazing. I can’t wait to give it a try.

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 9:20 am

      So, so much flavor!

  13. Amy Kim (@kimchi_mom) — April 28, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    Mmmm….one of our family favorites! So easy and flavorful! I should try the lime juice the next time I make this!

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 9:19 am

      I recommend the lime juice for sure! I thought it contrasted nicely with everything else.

  14. Hezzi-D — April 28, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    I love miso. I’ve only had salmon a handful of times but this looks like a great way to make it.

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 9:19 am

      I fell in love with salmon after having it at a food event. It was so perfect, with such great flavors, but I don’t know why I’ve never tried to make it before.

  15. Alaiyo Kiasi-Barnes — April 28, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    Congrats for cooking fish for the first time. Miso is wonderful too and is a savory accompaniment with salmon. I hope you’ll keep experimenting with fish recipes. Wonderful post!

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 9:18 am

      I absolutely will continue to experiment with fish recipes! I want to try to make fish and chips.

  16. Jennie @themessybakerblog.com — April 28, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    That miso glazes sounds delicious. Love this!

  17. Liz — April 28, 2013 at 10:16 pm

    OH, yum!!!! I ordered this at a restaurant just last week…and I bet yours tastes even better! A must try at home…SO glad for the recipe!

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 9:18 am

      Thank you, Liz! I loved mine so much!

  18. Kim Beaulieu — April 28, 2013 at 10:56 pm

    I just love salmon, and with miso it’s even better. This looks perfectly lovely.

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 9:17 am

      Thanks, Kim!

  19. Sarah Reid, RHNC (@jo_jo_ba) — April 29, 2013 at 9:33 am

    I’m not a fan of miso for some reason, but this looks good! May have to dig right in!

  20. Courtney @ Neighborfood — April 29, 2013 at 10:00 am

    The first time I made salmon I was also shocked at how quickly it all came together (and how expensive it was…ick). It is a great, quick, and healthy meal though! Your version looks lip smacking good. 🙂

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 1:35 pm

      Thanks Courtney! I was also surprised at the cost of salmon, but apparently fish is expensive in general. Who knew…lol

  21. Stacy — April 29, 2013 at 11:47 am

    I love miso and salmon and this sounds like the perfect combination of the two. And those greens are just gorgeous along side the beautiful salmon.

    • Jennifer — April 29th, 2013 @ 1:34 pm

      Thank you, Stacy!

  22. Martin D. Redmond — April 29, 2013 at 10:29 pm

    Wow…great looking recipe! I wish I had some right about now!

    • Jennifer — April 30th, 2013 @ 9:53 am

      Thanks, Martin!

  23. Bea — April 30, 2013 at 5:37 pm

    Salmon is so delicious and your miso glazed salmon filets look fantastic! Well done:) ~ Bea @ The Not So Cheesy Kitchen

  24. The Wimpy Vegetarian — May 1, 2013 at 12:21 am

    Congrats on your first fish!! You did great. I love miso, and love the glaze on cod too.

  25. Megan — May 2, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    Looks delicious!! We just made salmon for the first time last week we really enjoyed it & I will be making this recipe for sure!
