Miso Maple Glazed Salmon


This Miso Maple Glazed Salmon strikes the perfect balance between sweet and savory, creating a harmonious symphony of flavors. The combination of umami-rich miso paste and the natural sweetness of maple syrup creates a glaze that coats the salmon with a tantalizing caramelized crust.


  • 2, 6-8 ounce salmon filets (skin on or skin off)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white miso paste
  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar or mirin
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, for garnish
  • herbs for garnish (cilantro, green onion or parsley)


  1. Preheat the broiler or oven.
  2. In a bowl, combine the miso paste, maple syrup, soy sauce, rice vinegar and sesame oil.
  3. Oil the bottom of an oven-safe dish or pan. 
  4. Pat the salmon filets dry. 
  5. Add the salmon to the baking pan. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Brush the filets with the miso maple mixture (tops and sides).
  7. Place under the broil (middle rack). Broil for about 8 to 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish.
  8. Move the oven rack closer to the broiler and broil for another 1 to 2 minutes to caramelize the glaze.
