How To Make easy miso glazed salmon

  • 1
    In a small bowl, add plum wine, honey, soy sauce, vinegar, miso paste, garlic and ginger. Whisk the ingredients until well mixed and the miso paste is dissolved.
  • 2
    Place salmon fillets in a wide rimmed serving dish and pour the marinade over. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.
  • 3
    In small skillet over medium heat, toast the sesame seeds, tossing them occasionally until golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • 4
    Remove from the heat and transfer them to a small bowl to cool off.
  • 5
    A few hours later, transfer the salmon fillets on a baking sheet lined with foil that has been lightly greased with cooking spray. Let the fillets sit for about 15 minutes to warm up near room temperature.
  • 6
    Pour the marinade in a small saucepan and set the burner between medium and medium-low. Simmer until it reduces and thickens.
  • 7
    Transfer the fillets under the broiler – about 6-inches from the element – and set the timer for 7 minutes or until nicely charred and caramelized.
  • 8
    Carefully remove the fillets from the heat, pour the sauce over, sprinkle on sesame seeds and green onions; serve immediately.
