This miso broiled salmon recipe from Eating Bird Food tastes like it came from a fancy restaurant, but can be made in the comfort of your own kitchen in just 15 minutes. The intense flavor comes from the sweet and savory miso glaze, which is made with white miso, mirin, tamari, and ginger. For added nutrients, serve the omega−3-packed salmon with cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli or collard greens and fiber-rich brown rice.
MISO BROILED SALMON
- 1 tablespoon white miso
- 1 tablespoon mirin* (or rice wine vinegar)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons reduced sodium tamari
- 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
- 2 – 4 ounce salmon fillets
- 1 tablespoon scallions, thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 1/2 teaspoons gomasio (or toasted sesame seeds)

*Mirin is a sweet, low-alcohol rice wine that can be found in the Asian section of your grocery store. If you can’t find it rice wine vinegar will work as a substitute.Recipe adapted from Fitness Magazine.
