    My family loved this. We used wild caught Coho Salmon and doubled the sauce I served the salmon on a bed of Basmati and Wild Rice Blend then put extra sauce over the top. I used red miso paste that was purchased at our local Asian supermarket. Will definitely be making this again.

    Outstanding! Followed others' advice and heated the remaining glaze and brushed it on again as it came out of the oven, already sticky and delicious! I initially poured too much glaze onto the pan and it burned midway, so I had to switch out the foil. It caramelized perfectly. Served w/ steamed fresh green beans sprinkled w/ McCormick's Fast East Ginger Sesame Blend and creamy cooked bulgur wheat mixed w/ hummus.

    Wow! This came out amazing!! My BF thinks Im the best cook in the world now...I went to two different grocery stores and niether had the miso, so I substituted hoisin sauce and it turned out great. I took the advice about brushing on alittle extra after it came out of the oven and it was perfect. I made it with the wasabi potatoes which I wasnt crazy about...but the fish was GREAT!!

    I just didn't like this. It was super easy, but I MUCH prefer the Sweet Orange Salmon.

    Didn't care for the flavor. Bland.

    I thought it was too sweet and the sauce was runny. It tasted like the roast eel they put on sushi. Will try again with less water and sugar.

    I have prepared this dish many times and it comes out delicious every time. Super-quick and easy to prepare too.

    Mike, I can't believe you would say this recipe was BLAND! Wow, it is the furthest thing from bland!!! All I can say it that it was delicious and easy!!! What more could you ask for? I grated a little fresh ginger and added a little sake to the glaze. It came out great. I, too used foil to line the pan. I made a batch of Kokuho rose rice and served it with steamed asparagus. That's all you need for a dinner to impress. I wonder if it would work well with halibut? Has anyone tried it using halibut in place of the salmon? Thanks for a great recipe!

    My family really liked it. Next time I will: -reserve some sauce to baste fish when it comes out of the oven. -reduce or omit water -works well with chicken too

    I couldn't find the miso either - so I did what another reviewer suggested and used Hoisin sauce instead - It was still very good (I thought it was a little on the sweet side though). I also only used 1 T of water after reading the reviews. I served it over brown rice and drizzled a little of the sauce over the rice too.

  • JJ1916ohio Posted: 01/27/10

    Delicious and so easy. I only used 1 tbsp of water since other reviewers said it was a bit runny and basted it twice during the broiling process. I had thick salmon though so ended up broiling it for closer to 16 min. After dishing it up, I used some of the sauce in the bottom of the pan to top the filets. My mom and her husband devoured it.

    I LOVED this dish! It was so easy to prepare. Served it to guests, whose picky 6-year-old had 3 helpings! Will definitely make this again!

    I bought a container of white miso to make miso soup, which I love, and wanted to find other ways to use it. I had some nice Norwegen salmon and found this recipe. I used the basic idea, but the original looked like it would be too sweet for my taste. I was cooking for one, so I simply improvised by combining 1 T. each miso, honey and unseasoned rice vinegar with a dash each of powdered ginger and cayenne. I broiled it in a my toaster oven and... FANTASTIC! I had it with sesame roasted green beans - yum! A new favorite.

    I'm always trying new salmon recipes, and this one has to be one of my favorites. It's quick, easy, and delicious. I usually leave the chives out though, my boyfriend doesn't like them.

    Great combination of flavors for a fast and healthy meal. Loved the combination of brown sugar with the miso on salmon. Served it with brown rice and sauteed spinach. Our kids also loved it.

    i winced when mixing the heap of miso with soy sauce. it looked like the fish was going to be unbearably salty, BUT it turned out surprisingly good! i liked the caramelized glaze on the fish and it was sweet without being overpowering. i regret making a double batch of the sauce though because it was way too salty even with rice.

    I've made this several times now, each time to rave reviews. Super easy and very tasty. I've served it with pan seared Asian greens with shiitake sauce, and rice as my sides. I've used Bok Choy, spinach, broccoli, snap peas or asparagus , depending on what I had. All tasty. Add edamame and sake for an easy, all out Asian meal.

    Made this tonight and we loved it! I couldn't find miso paste, but had miso soup mix and used the miso powder instead. I don't know how much that would affect the taste, but I was very happy with my results. I had a little more fish than the recipe called for so I made more glaze and reduced it for a thicker sauce to spoon over when served, This was an excellent dish and now I'm anxious to give it a try once I can get my hands on miso paste.

  • daneanp Posted: 11/16/12

    Fabulous! And oh so easy. I needed about 15 minutes on the salmon, basting with the sauce at 5 minute intervals. DH loved it; said it was the best salmon dish he's had in a long while. Served with wild rice and steamed green beans.

  • CindyPaints Posted: 11/21/13

    Used red miso paste for the glaze, and added a bit of onion powder and garlic powder, along with about 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil (which I doubled, as well). FANTASTIC. Not only will we make it again and again, we're going to try this glaze on grilled chicken, too!

  • JoanDyer Posted: 10/30/12

    Really, really tasty and easy to prepare. This was a big hit with my family. Be careful about overcooking the salmon, however.

  • nbalter1 Posted: 01/27/14

    We first tried this in 2006 and we've been making it ever since. It's easy and scrumptious. Definitely baste with the miso sauce (as the recipe says) because I've discovered that if I spoon it on all at once, it drips and burns.

    This is my all-time favorite salmon recipe. It comes out perfect every time. My husband says, "you can make this for me anytime!" Super easy, super delish!

    This recipe is very easy to prepare and is outstandingly delicious. 10 minutes in the broiler was about right, but was just starting to burn the glaze around the edges so 9 minutes might have been better. The key is to watch it carefully.

  • GlenGerson Posted: 11/21/13

    I first had salmon prepared somewhat in this manner at an office picnic organised at Calamiagos Ranch, a special event menu in the Malibu Wine Country. I met my future wife at this location just after some appetizers (including this) so somehow this place and this dish has a special place in my heart. Tried it out yesterday and it came out amazingly well and so did the memories. Did not know it was so simple and so quick to make.

    This recipe is ridiculously easy for the resulting flavor. I make exactly per the recipe. Note for ten minutes to be the right amount of time the thickness guidance of 1inch should be followed. Too thick and the glaze will burn before fish cooked through. A great one for the weeknight repertoire.
