The perfect pescatarian dish for your a weeknight, as it comes together in less than 20 minutes.
Salmon is such a versatile fish that is not only full of healthy nutrients but is also quick to cook and low fuss. You can keep it very simple with just a drizzle of olive oil and lemon or dress it up with a glaze such as our Citrus Honey Glaze.
The glaze we are sharing with you today is sweet and salty with umami notes from the miso and ginger. You can also turn the heat up by adding a pinch of red pepper flakes, or a bit of curry (we love Jennifer Fisher's curry salt in this recipe!)
You can make it in a pan, on the grill, or like we suggest here for ease and speed, in the oven.
The key to making a killer piece of roasted salmon is not overcooking it. Cooking proteins can be tricky, especially if you’re new to the practice. A perfectly cooked salmon fillet is supple and juicy but can quickly turn to an overly firm and dry piece of fish in a matter of minutes. It’s best to stay close to the oven when roasting salmon and check regularly to prevent overdoing it.
I prefer my salmon on the rare side and usually roast it for no more than 8-9 minutes at 400 degrees. If you like yours more done - keep it there for an extra couple of minutes.
Citrus-Miso-Honey Glazed Salmon
I make this Salmon at least once a week. In the Winter - in the oven, in the summer - on the grill.
4 6oz pieces of salmon
2 tablespoons kyoord olive oil
1 ½ tablespoons miso paste
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon minced ginger or ½ teaspoon ground dry ginger
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Remove salmon from the refrigerator and allow to sit at room temperature for around 10 minutes to remove the chill. Pat dry with a paper towel.
Meanwhile prepare the glaze. Add all other ingredients to a medium mixing bowl, and whisk to combine.
taste and adjust level of saltiness, sweetness and heat per your liking.
brush a bit of olive oil on the skin side of the filets, sprinkle salt and pepper and place skin side down on a parchment lined baking sheet. Pour the glaze over the fish. let it run to the pan, thats ok!
Roast for 8-10 minutes for medium rare, or 10-12 minutes for medium well.
Transfer the salmon to a serving platter and spoon over all that extra gooey glazy goodness
If you have an extra minute - feel free to roast some citrus slices brushed with the glaze and use them for plating.
