Caramelized Garlic and Miso Salmon
This is Ann's family's favorite salmon recipe, even the kids! The marinade comes together fast and an easy weeknight dinner.
- 2 tsp garlic minced
- 1 tsp ground ginger or 2 tsp grated fresh ginger
- 1 tsp miso paste
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 4 Tbsp lower sodium soy sauce
- 1 lb salmon fillet cut into 4 portions
- 1 tsp canola oil
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Put the garlic, ginger, miso paste, honey and soy sauce in a large re-sealable bag and mix together well.
- Add the salmon to the bag and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
- Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the salmon from the marinade (reserve marinade) and put top side down in pan and sear for about 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the salmon, skin side down, to a baking dish coated with cooking spray. Pour the reserved marinade over the salmon in the pan.
- Bake the salmon at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes, or until it flakes easily with a fork. Baste salmon with the pan sauce halfway through cooking. Serve salmon with any remaining sauce in the pan poured over it.
Simplify It: You can skip searing the salmon in step 4 if you are in a hurry and just pop it straight in the oven with the marinade. Nutrition Nugget: Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish have been associated with many benefits including boosting your mood and immune system! Fresh, fresh-frozen, or canned Alaska sockeye salmon provides the highest amount of Omega-3 fatty acids of any fish.
