I guess I’m on a fish kick, but I just didn’t want to miss telling you about this delicious salmon. After enjoying it in many SOCAL (Southern California) restaurants, I decided to go home and make my own. It has been a big success with friends and family.
NOTE: Use wild caught salmon. Farm raised salmon are fed soy and dyes (to get their red color).
Grilled Miso Salmon Recipe
2-4 salmon filets (without skin)
3 tablespoons Miso Paste, white organic (refrigerated)
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil (in the Asian section of your supermarket)
2 teaspoons Bragg Liquid Aminos (a healthy, low sodium and better tasting alternative to soy sauce)
Sesame Seeds, toasted
In a small bowl, combine miso, sesame oil, Bragg Liquid Aminos. Coat the top and bottom of the salmon with the miso mixture. Sprinkle sesame seeds on the top and bottom of fish. Grill fish. Fish is especially delicious if you grill it on a cedar plank pre-soaked in water.
If you live in Lawrence County, Tennessee, you can find white miso paste in the refrigerator section of Oriental Pearl in Florence, Alabama. Whole Foods or Earth Fare also carry it. If you can only find red miso paste, it’ll work just as well. Earth Fare carries organic white miso.
