Recipe by  

"This simple glaze combines salty and savory miso paste with sweet maple syrup. The rice vinegar marries the two, and a few drops of hot sauce are all you need to complete this incredibly easy, yet sophisticated dish."

  1. Place oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  2. Whisk together miso paste, seasoned rice vinegar, maple syrup, and hot chili sauce in a bowl.
  3. Brush an oven-ready skillet with vegetable oil.
  4. Place salmon fillets skin sides down in the cold skillet. Place over medium heat and cook until the skin starts to sizzle, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove pan from heat.
  5. Brush each salmon fillet with miso glaze. Place skillet under the preheated broiler and cook until the salmon is just cooked through and the top is browned, about 8 minutes.
  6. Remove each fillet from the pan, separating flesh from the skin; leave the skin in the pan.

This sauce was actually pretty good, but too sweet for my taste, so I removed a star. Next time I will reduce the maple syrup to a teaspoon or so. Remember that the seasoned rice vinegar is also sweet. Instead of following these complicated instructions, I just poured the sauce over the fish, no marinating, & baked it in the toaste oven for 14 min or so. Maybe it didn't have the glazed effect but it didn't mess up my kitchen and it was easy.

Would not make this again. There was not enough flavour for the time and mess. The pan was very difficult to clean and the oven now needs cleaning as well.

This was great! Though, we Cedar plank grilled it instead.

Made it as is, except did it on the BBQ grill. Cooked one side then turned and basted done side. Turned and basted other side when almost cooked, a few minutes on each side to grill the sauce and it's done. Served with Authentic German Potato Salad (on AllRecipes) over crisp salad greens dressed with olive oil and Parmesan. Excellent combo. Paired with a crisp Viognier for a perfect match.

The best Salmon recipe! This is so easy, you cannot go wrong.

Very easy and delicious. One son has bean allergy so made half without Miso (added some brown sugar to non-Miso half)

Absolutely delicious! The caramelization from baking is wonderful. I didn't have salmon with skin on it, so the only difference in the directions is I added olive oil to the pan for the initial step so the fish wouldn't stick. Don't eliminate the hot sauce. Adds wonderful flavor, but not enough to be hot.

This was very delicious. I will make it again. I used king salmon, and will try it with sockeye next. I did use a cast iron pan and had it heated with the oil (instead of a cold pan) because we eat a lot of salmon, and I know how fun it is to clean the skin off the pan. It worked great and the skin came off both the pan and the salmon, but wasn't overcooked.
