2 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 3/4 cup spinach mixture)

Look for jars of time-saving pretoasted sesame seeds in the spice aisle.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

To prepare fish, combine the first 6 ingredients in a small bowl, and brush evenly over fish. Arrange fish on a foil-lined baking sheet; broil for 8 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Step 3

To prepare spinach, while fish broils, heat sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and spinach to skillet; cook 30 seconds or until spinach just begins to wilt, tossing mixture constantly. Stir in 2 teaspoons soy sauce.

Quick, easy and very good -- healthy too! I had all the ingredients on hand. I used regular soy sauce, so I will reduce that (or mix half with water) next time. Served with sauteed crimini mushrooms and kale. I would definitely serve this to guests for a casual meal.

This recipe is outstanding and super easy to make, however the nutritional information is incorrect, and if you're counting calories, beware - it's NOT 347 as listed but instead totals 458 cal using a 6oz piece of Atlantic Salmon with a 28.5g of fat! If you want a healthier option, go for a 4oz piece of fish, omit the sesame seeds and your down to 316 cal and 19.1g fat and you won't miss a thing.

Doubled the recipe and served with CL's Sesame-Soy Green Beans and steamed brown rice. Didn't have mirin, so used a combination of an off-dry white wine and sherry and increased the sugar a little bit. Also upped the ginger a little bit. Broiled the salmon on the second rack from the top and kept a close eye on it, but 8 minutes was perfect. Got rave reviews. Will definitely make again and would make for company as well.

Excellent, quick and easiest clean-up ever!! (line roasting pan well with foil) Be careful to watch salmon though.. the miso can go from perfectly glazed to burnt very quickly. Served with jasmine rice. Even my non-fish loving husband really liked it.

This was delicious and super, super quick. We added a tad more sesame oil than was called for, probably a little more ginger, and I barely wilted the spinach - and it was terrific. I even forgot the sesame seeds and it was terrific. Will make again and again....and it is so healthy.

This was the first time I've cooked with miso. I used a mild-style miso on the advice of the nice lady at nearby asian market. I was definitely pleased with this recipe. It is quick, easy, and delicious. My soon-to-be 13 year old dubbed it her favorite salmon recipe EVER (and for her, that says a lot!). Adding this one to our staples list. I look forward to cooking again with miso.

My family loved this. I've made many variations of Miso Salmon and I have to say they are all alittle different, but all really good. Will definitely make over and over again. There are 4 of us so I doubled the recipe.
