Miso is Japanese fermented soybean paste used to flavor many dishes, in addition to the familiar soup at sushi restaurants. There are dozens of varieties. Look for yellow miso, a mild, somewhat earthy, and almost sweet version that is often available in the produce section of large supermarkets. Try this thick rub on salmon fillets, dark-meat chicken, pork, tofu steaks, or eggplant slices. When grilling salmon, cook it skin side down the entire time without turning.
1/3 cup yellow miso
1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
How to Make It
Combine all ingredients, stirring well with a whisk.
This was very good. A change from the usual marinade. I love the flavor of miso, however, I could not find yellow miso in my supermarket so I made it with the regular kind. Easy quick way to add flavor to grilled meat.
