  • 2 8 oz salmon fillets (with skin on)

Miso Ginger Marinade/Sauce

  • 1/4 cup peanut or corn oil
  • 1/2 apple chopped and seeded gala apple
  • 1/2 tsp sesame seed oil
  • 1/2 inch chopped fresh ginger root (about 1/2 tsp)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp mirin
  • 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp white miso paste


  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions



  • Spray a cooking pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. 
  • Add the ingredients for the miso ginger marinade/sauce in your mixer.
  • Mix/pulse ingredients for a few minutes until everything is finely blended.
  • After the ingredients are blended, put half of the marinade in a separate container  We will use this a bit later in the process.  Apply the other half of the marinade to each fillet, thoroughly coating each fillet.
  • Place salmon fillets in a covered dish and then in the refrigerator for 30 - 45 minutes.
  • Remove dish from refrigerator and scrape off excess miso ginger sauce.
  • Turn broiler on high. Place the fillets in a cooking pan that you've sprayed with your nonstick cooking spray. Place pan on the top rack of the oven on broil (hi) for 4 - 5 minutes.
  • About halfway through the broiling process, remove the cooking pan from the oven. Get the other half of the sauce you mixed up earlier and apply a good coating of the sauce to your fillets. Return your fillets to the oven to finish cooking.
  • After the second half of your cooking time expires (4 - 5 minutes cook time total), remove the fillets from the oven. Using a fork, test how easily the salmon flakes apart. Salmon that is properly cooked should have an internal temp of 145 F and flake easily.
  • Use the chopped green onions to garnish.
  • ENJOY!!


Sesame oil and ginger can have a strong flavor.  I try to go a little light on those ingredients.
