Miso-Glazed Salmon

I am one of the umami lovers out there…the fifth flavor that includes sweet, salty, bitter, and sour. All you have to do is mention a California Roll and I can taste it…and then want to have it haha. Dorie tells us the word is sometimes translated from Japanese as “delicious” and a taste that keeps you coming back for more..I would agree!

I knew my family would love this as we love the umami flavor and salmon. I didn’t have the miso paste so I went to our local Japanese store and found it.

The marinade is made up of the miso paste, honey, lemon, juice, and soy sauce. I let my salmon marinate for about 3 hours before cooking. It turned out so moist and delicious. I was expecting the flavor to be bold, but I would say it was more of a background favor to the salmon. I served it with baby greens and the salad dressing from our last recipe! 😃

  1. That’s a perfect way to describe the marinade’s taste – a background flavor. I also thought it would be stronger but was satisfied with this recipe in every way. So easy. Perfect for One. And, a family. I don’t know much about Miso, nor umami but I do now have a handle on the Japanese language. Instead of telling someone that something is “delicious.” I am going to say, “Ohhhh, that’s so unami.” Does that work????That’s a perfect way to describe the marinade’s taste – a background flavor.

  2. Yummy ! Plus I loved how easy it was. Of course for me, I had the miso gifted to me by my mother (aka Chez Nana) so I didn’t even have the challenge of hunting that ingredient down. Lovely plate of delicious food.
