Weeknight dinners that feel special are so great to have in the recipe rotation. This simply prepared miso-glazed salmon recipe was full of flavor and tasted like I spent way more time in the kitchen than I needed to.

To make this 20-minute baked fish recipe you will need just a few ingredients. Here is your shopping list: sesame seeds, miso paste, mirin or rice vinegar, soy sauce or tamari, fresh ginger, hot sauce (if you want a kick), fresh salmon fillets, green onions and either fresh cilantro or parsley.

This quick seafood dinner would be delicious for lunch or dinner served over risotto, grains or sautéed greens like I did. You have a complete, tasty meal in no time!

Recipe Notes

  • I found miso at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, but the mirin was at a specialty Asian grocery store.
  • I used toasted sesame seeds so it wasn’t necessary to brown them.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Place your oven rack on second setting from the top and turn the broiler on. Place a piece of parchment on a baking sheet. Put the salmon filets, skin side down, on the parchment.
  2. Put a skillet on medium-low heat and toast the sesame seeds, being careful to keep moving them around to avoid burning, about 2 to 4 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl mix miso, soy sauce, ginger and optional hot sauce.
  4. Brush the miso mix onto the salmon filets. Broil about 4 inches away from the heat for about 6 minutes for rare and 8 minutes for a more well-done fish.
  5. Garnish the salmon with sesame seed, green onions and optional herbs. Serve over a grain or vegetable like simple sautéed greens. Enjoy!
