Broiled Miso Salmon

I love miso soup, it is tasty and very easy to prepare, so I almost always have miso paste at home. Sometimes though, I want to use miso paste for other dishes, like this easy broiled miso salmon. I learned how to prepare this dish from Just One Cookbook, and I really love how simple and delicious this dish turned out. And yes, of course this is perfect served together with miso soup as well ;)

Author: Anita Jacobson




Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 10 mins

Total Time: 20 mins

Serves: 4


  • 2 pieces of salmon fillet with skin on (about 350 grams/0.8 pound each)
  • Miso sauce
  • 2 tablespoon white miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon sake
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Garnish
  • chopped scallions
  • toasted sesame seeds


  1. Mix all ingredients together to make the miso sauce.
  2. Place salmon in a mixing bowl, skin side down, and coat with miso sauce. Cover the bowl, and refrigerate for at most 1 hour (it will be too salty otherwise).
  3. Set the oven broiler to high setting, and preheat for 3 minutes.
  4. Line a baking pan with a parchment paper and place the salmon on it, remove excess marinate.
  5. Broil for 8-12 minutes, depending on thickness of salmon, until the salmon is cooked through.
  6. Serve with steamed white rice and garnish with chopped scallions and/or toasted sesame seeds.

    I am a massive fan of the salty flavour of miso.. and combining it in a marinade is such a delicious idea!
