Miso Glazed Salmon

Miso Glazed Salmon

4 Servings

1   tablespoon sesame seeds
2   tablespoons miso paste *
2   tablespoons mirin
1   tablespoon soy sauce
1   tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 ¼   pounds center-cut salmon steaks, cut into 4 portions
    hot pepper sauce

Position oven rack 3-4 inches from the broiler and preheat the broiler. Line a small baking pan with foil. Coat foil with cooking spray.

Toast sesame seeds in a small dry skillet over low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Set aside.

Whisk miso, mirin, soy sauce, ginger and few drops of hot pepper sauce in a small bowl until smooth.

Place salmon fillets, skin-side down, in the prepared pan. Brush generously with the miso mixture.

Broil salmon, until opaque in the center, 6 to 8 minutes.

Plate the salmon and sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds

* The recipe that was the basis for this called for white miso (and it is quite good that way) but I think genmai miso gives a much deeper flavor.
