Sweet & Salmon

Sweet and salmonAs you may know, I am a recent Miso convert. It's just a really fun flavor that isn't overpowering in a dish. I love how it's savory but can easily be paired with a sweet component. For example, this baked salmon recipe features miso and honey—yum! Miso and honey glazed salmonYou could serve this along with a light salad (like I did) or a big helping of risotto or mashed potatoes if you'd like something even more filling. This is one of those recipes that will probably start making its way into our homemade dinner rotations. It features two things I love: it's delicious and super easy to make!How to bake salmonSweet & Salmon, serves 3-4.

13-15 oz salmon (if using frozen be sure to thaw first)
2 tablespoons miso paste (I used shiro)
1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 tablespoon rice vinegar
1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
juice from half a lime
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 tablespoon chopped green onions

Stir together the miso paste, oil, honey, vinegar, soy sauce, and lime juice. Add in the minced garlic and ginger. Miso and honey glaze for salmonCover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and spread over the parchment paper. Place the salmon on the oiled parchment paper. Pour over the miso glaze. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper. Let that sit and marinate for 10-12 minutes.

Bake at 400°F for 8-10 minutes (until the salmon is cooked through). Sprinkle the green onions over the top of the salmon just before serving.Miso and honey glazed salmon I especially love this glaze over salmon, but it could work well over other fish too, like tilapia or cod. But if you're trying this for the first time, I highly recommend salmon. I mean, it's called Sweet & Salmon. 🙂 Enjoy! xo. Emma

    Greetings from Gothenburg

  • Awesome! I live in Alaska and we eat salmon at least once a week. I have made salmon with miso (very similar to this recipe) and we love it! We sometimes use a balsamic glaze too. Our favorite is baked salmon with melted butter, parsley, crushed garlic and lemon slices. Let me know if you need some Alaska king salmon…I can hook (haha) you up!

  • Wow this looks amazing! Anything with salmon has my name written all over it! Thank you for sharing 🙂 I always enjoy reading your blog!

  • I miss eating salmon, this looks so nice! x


  • I think this is a great alternative to the miso you normally get at a restaurant. I love miso too but avoid it when dining out because I’m worried that they just load it down with brown sugar. I can’t wait to try this one, the honey sounds like a nice light alternative to sugar.

  • This looks delicious and healthy! In fact I’m getting ready to make some salmon right now! I like the idea of something sweet on top.

  • Love the title as well, and I’m saving the recipe as I have only just recently discovered that I love salmon like the rest of the world!

  • I looove salmon, and miso as well, so I’ll definitely be trying this. It looks incredible 🙂


  • It’s soy sauce (with green onions) and hot chili sauce. I like having something spicy on the side sometimes. 🙂


  • Yum. If you do try it on trout let us know what you thought.


  • Elsie came up with that title. I think she was kind of joking but I thought it was too cute. So I used it. 🙂


  • I’ve really been wanting to try out more salmon dishes! And heck if I don’t loooooove miso! Thanks so much for sharing!


  • This looks absolutely delicious. Will definitely need to try it out soon!

  • Im a miso convert too! Before I always used to have instant miso soup for example, but lately I’ve been cooking it from scratch and it’s AMAZING. This is a dish that I’ve wanted to try for ages! (Fish marinated with miso)

    Looks so delicious, definitely trying this tomorrow! Might use rainbow trout instead though 🙂

  • This looks so refreshing. And so darn simple! Perfect for spring!


  • this looks like a delicious and easy way to add some fish into my diet! and im a huge fan of ginger, yum yum! question tho, what are the two sauces at the top? some chili and fish sauce perhaps?

  • This looks so good! I’ve been craving so much salmon lately and I’m not sure why. This is perfect for me.
