What goes into this broiled salmon dish?

This recipe can easily serve four, and we will need:

  • 500 gram (~ 1 lb.) salmon fillets, this should be around 4 fillets
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 3 tablespoon mayonnaise, I use Kewpie, but regular mayo works too
  • 1 tablespoon white miso paste
  • 1-2 tablespoon Thai sweet chili sauce, depends on how spicy you want the salmon to be

How to broil the spicy miso mayo salmon?

Here is my step-by-step:

  1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Preheat oven broiler (high) for at least 3 minutes. Set the oven rack to second from top, mine comes in 5 levels.
  2. Place salmon fillets on the baking sheet, skin side down, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Mix together mayonnaise, white miso paste, and Thai sweet chili sauce. Brush the salmon fillets liberally with the sauce mixture.
  4. Broil until the salmon is fully cooked. This should take about 8-10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillet.
  5. Serve immediately.

Tip #1: Check the doneness of the fish early

Fish can be cooked in such a short time. It generally takes under 10 minutes to broil fish with my oven broiler function unless I’m using an exceptionally thick fish fillet. Most of the time, I even start checking at around 6 minutes. 

Tip #2: Toaster oven instead of a regular oven

If you don’t want to use a big oven to broil fish, you can use a toaster oven and it should do the job just as well.

    Now I like a recipe site that calls for ingredients I have on hand... and this made me feel like I was really pulling all kinds of random things together from my fridge! I'll be sure to mention if I make any substitutions for a recipe, but this was 100% because I even had white miso hahaha
    As for the salmon, I'm spoiled. My family has some fishers who freeze and send us salmon quite often- the quality is far beyond any seafood section. Unfortunately... I just don't enjoy salmon! The taste is too strong for most dishes, and that also diminishes it's versatility, in my opinion. So I am always on the hunt for interesting way to use salmon! Your blog has so many examples of using it with southeast Asian flavors, I'm just in heaven!
    THIS recipe is SO easy, it's dumb. And it came out so delicious... sweet, mildly spicy, creamy, umami... even my extraordinarily picky mother snuck a piece, and for weeks since has been pestering me about it! Each ingredient contributed to keeping the salmon very most and permeating it with flavor.
    As for cooking, I had a huge filet, so I just coated the whole slab of fish and broiled it- however, I think it needed to be cut into smaller pieces because the thicker end needed more cooking time than suggested- since I didn't want to over-burn the top, I just put it in the oven at 350F for a few more minutes. I was a little wary of the blackened globs, but they didn't give a burned taste at all. Maybe they make it less picturesque, but once you take a bite, you might lick your plate.

      Wow, a lovely and super detailed feedback, Milky! I am so envious you have access to fishers to get super fresh salmon. And thanks for sharing your way of cooking the fish further with in the 350F oven. :)
