A sweet-salty miso, brown sugar, and soy sauce glaze caramelizes in about 10 minutes as it cooks atop rich, meaty salmon.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Combine first 4 ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Arrange fish in a shallow baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spoon miso mixture evenly over fish.

Step 3

Broil 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting twice with miso mixture. Sprinkle with chives.

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.

Better the next day

This is an easy recipe but I wasn't very impressed with it at first, I thought the flavor was too mild, but I had it for lunch the next day and it was much better. Maybe it needed time to marinate in the sauce a bit.

Healthy, Delicious, and Easy to Prepare!

My family loved this recipe! Flavorful and easy to prepare. My two young sons, who are picky eaters, loved this meal! We served it with brown rice and slim asparagus...healthy and yummy! We bought the miso paste at a local Japanese grocery store. Will definitely make this recipe again :)

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!
