This is a wonderful, mildly flavored dish. Japanese food is comfort food for me, and nothing goes down more smoothly than this dish. The sweet and salty miso glaze brings out the best in the salmon without overpowering it. Our kids love it too!
- 4 salmon steaks or fillets
- 2 oz akai miso (or shiro miso is fine too)
- 1 Tbsp mirin (sweet rice wine. You can buy it in the Asian section)
- 1 Tbsp dashi fish stock (granulated fish stock that you reconstitute with water according to the directions on the pkg. You can buy it in the Asian section)
- 1 egg yolk
- Broil salmon on high broil for about 5 minutes, then flip and broil for another 3 minutes.
- While fish is broiling, in a sauce pan or double boiler, mix the miso, mirin, and dashi and place over a larger pot of boiling water and stir gently. Add the egg yolk and mix thoroughly until smooth and glossy.
- Remove the salmon from the oven and baste the top with the miso sauce. Place the salmon back in the oven and continue to broil for another 2 minutes until the topping turns light brown.
- Serve with rice and place the remaining miso sauce in a bowl as a condiment.
