Miso-Glazed Salmon Recipe: A Tasty Broiled Salmon Recipe Full of Healthy Probiotics by Ann Marie Patitucci
I’ve been focusing on my health lately and have been doing some research on a variety of treatments, wellness practices and more. Something that keeps coming up in my research is probiotics. According to the Mayo Clinic, probiotics “contain live organisms, usually specific strains of bacteria that directly add to the population of healthy microbes in your gut.”
We can get probiotics through both supplements and food. The most common probiotic food seems to be yogurt. In addition to yogurt, other foods rich in probiotics are kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, soybeans, tempeh, pickles, apple cider vinegar, some soft cheeses and miso (made from soybeans). However, many of us don’t get enough of these foods and drinks in our diets, for a variety of reasons, including that we don’t know how to cook with them.
I’m committed to finding ways to get more natural probiotics into my diet, so I’ve been looking for healthy recipes that can help me do so. One of my favorites so far is a miso-glazed salmon recipe. It’s marinated with soy, sake honey and miso, which is full of lactobacillus probiotic strains. This salmon recipe is not only delicious but it’s also a simple way for me to get some miso into my diet. Bonus: it’s easy to make! Serve this broiled salmon with rice and vegetables for lunch or dinner. For even more nutrition, sprinkle with healthy sesame seeds.
Prep Time: 5 minutes plus 30 minutes to marinate
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes plus 30 minutes to marinate
- 3 tablespoons white miso paste (or 2 tablespoons red miso)
- 2 tablespoons sake
- 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup or 1 - 2 tablespoons granulated sugar (to taste)
- 2 teaspoons soy sauce (low-sodium preferred)
- 4 salmon fillets
Here’s how to make it:
- In a large bowl, whisk the miso, sake, honey and soy together. Add the salmon and toss to coat. Marinate salmon in the bowl for at least 30 minutes but as long as 24 hours, for a deeper miso flavor. You can marinate salmon in the bowl, covered, in the refrigerator.
- Place the fillets in a casserole dish or broiling pan. About 6 inches from the heat element, broil for 6 to 10 minutes.
Note: Miso contains quite a bit of salt so it may not be the best fit for someone following a low-sodium diet.
