Here is a quick and tasty salmon dish. Always a hit with the clients I cook for.
Broiled Miso Orange Glazed Salmon
4 – 5-6 oz filets of salmon (thick cuts are best)
1 teaspoon sesame oil
½ cup light miso
zest of 1 orange (or tangerine)
juice of half an orange
1 Tbs mirin (sweet Japanese cooking wine)
1 ½ teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar, unseasoned
3 scallions, thinly sliced
sesame seeds, lightly toasted (optional)
Mix sauce ingredients together.
Rub salmon filets with sesame oil. Marinate the salmon with 3 Tb of the sauce. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or up to 8 hours. If you do not have time to marinate, don’t worry – just top with the sauce and broil – the dish will still be delicious.
Place salmon filets on a baking sheet. Top with the remaining sauce. Broil for 8-10 minutes or until the salmon is cooked to your liking. The top of the sauce should be a rich brown color.
Place salmon on serving plates and garnish with a generous sprinkle of the scallion and sesame seeds.
Sauce can be made ahead up to a week. Sauce can also be frozen.
Substitute with your favorite fish such as halibut, bass, sable, tilapia, etc
