Prep time: 1 hour
Cook time: 20 minutes
  • 2 4-6oz salmon fillets
  • 1 lime, cut in half
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup green onions, white and greenparts thinly chopped
For the Miso Dressing
  • 3 tablespoons white miso paste
  • 2 tablespoons sake
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 2 tablespoons sake
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce


In a bowl, mix miso dressing ingredients together. In a plastic bag, place salmon and miso mixture together with salt and pepper. Making sure the miso mélange covers the salmon evenly, marinate it inside the bag for at least an hour, preferably longer. Line a pan with parchment paper and place the salmon skin side up. Cook over medium-high high heat for 10 minutes on each side, turning once. Make sure you don’t have too much miso dressing sitting on the parchment paper, and make sure the paper fits inside the pan without hanging over. Once opaque on the inside and crispy browned on the outside, it’s done. To serve, plate cooked salmon, sprinkle on sesame seeds and green onions along with a splash of lime.
