Roasted Salmon with Misoyaki Sauce


Salmon is one of the healthiest foods to include in your diet and this is a failsafe way to prepare it. This is a super easy sauce that goes well with EVERY fish (especially black cod – which locals call butterfish, no doubt because it melts in your mouth!).  This is a great way to entice anyone who doesn’t care for fish or is afraid to cook it – the result is delicious and easy to prepare.

4 to 5 servings


cooking spray
1/2 cup
low sodium shoyu
1/2 cup
1/2 cup
white miso paste
2 tsp
3 Tbsp
minced fresh garlic
2 to 3 lb
salmon filet (with or without skin)
toasted black sesame seeds
2 to 3 Tbsp
thinly sliced garlic chives, regular chives or green onion

Preheat oven to 350° and spray your baking dish with cooking spray. To make the sauce, in a small bowl, combine the shoyu, sugar, miso paste, mirin and garlic. Stir well until all the ingredients are incorporated into a smooth sauce. 

Lay the salmon filet on your prepared baking dish and pour sauce over the fish to completely cover it (you will probably have extra sauce to use for another great meal!).  Sprinkle with black sesame seeds then place baking dish into your preheated oven. A timer really helps, 10 minutes should be enough – but to be really accurate, you can use an instant read thermometer (135° is perfectly cooked fish!). Remove from the oven and garnish with your sliced chives or green onion. Serve with rice or over grains like quinoa.
