Author's Notes

This recipe uses Marukome® Premium White Miso. Saikyo miso (kyoto-style white miso paste) is a light-colored miso paste that has a lower salt level than regular miso. This lower saltiness leads to the savory taste of the dish. Although you can replace it with regular white miso that is usually used for miso soup, it results in a saltier taste than the recipe. So, try to use saikyo miso (kyoto-style miso) for this recipe.

If you don’t like fish skin, you can make this dish with fish without skin. You can also remove the skin if you don’t like it. Then skip step 1.

You can use any type of fish or meat instead of salmon. The rather fat-rich types of fish/meat such as black cod or chicken thigh will go better than lean fish/meat for this dish.

The size of the fish is usually about 100-120 g for set meals and about 80 g for course dishes. (Reduce the cooking time in the oven by 1-2 minutes if the fish piece is 80 g instead of 120 g).

You can marinate the fish for up to 7 days. If you want to store it even longer, remove them from the marinade and wrap them with plastic, then foil and store them in a freezer. Then it can be stored for up to one month.

If you want to re-use the marinade, add 50 ml of mirin for the miso marinade (serving for 6 people) before re-using the marinade (up to two more times).

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
If the scales of the Salmon (1.3 lb) are still on the skin, remove them with a knife. (Skip this step if you bought a descaled fish or fish without skin).
Step 2
Lightly Salt (to taste) the block of salmon on all sides and leave for 15 minutes skin side down. This process minimizes any fishy odor.
Step 3
While the fish sits, add the instructed amount of Saikyo Miso Paste (1 3/4 cups) to a bowl. Add Mirin (1/2 cup) a little by little and mix it in completely before adding more.
Step 4
After leaving the fish for 15 minutes, there should be moisture on the surface. Wipe it off, and slice the fish into roughly 100 g each diagonally.
Step 5
Spread half the miso base from Step 3 in a flat cooking tray and cover the bottom completely. And arrange the salmon on top of the miso base so as not to overlap.
Step 6
Place the rest of the miso base over salmon evenly, and make sure that each filet is completely covered then cover the miso base with plastic or foil. Marinate in the refrigerator at least overnight (preferably 2-3 days).
Step 7
After marinating, pre-heat the oven to 320 degrees F (160 degrees C) (turn the broiler function on if available).
Step 8
Remove the fish from the marinade. Take off as much miso base as possible and wipe the remaining marinade off completely with a paper towel. Lay a sheet of non-stick baking paper on a baking tray and lay the slices of fish on the tray with the skin side up.
Step 9
Cook or broil in the preheated oven for 7 minutes at 320 degrees F (160 degrees C).
Step 10
After 7 minutes, raise the temperature to 420 degrees F (220 degrees C) and cook for another 5 minutes.
Step 11
While the fish cooks, boil water in a small pan and boil the snow peas for 30 seconds. Take them out from the water and place them on the paper towel, then diagonally cut them in half.
Step 12
Take the tray out and apply mirin with a brush. Serve the cooked fish on a plate with boiled Snow Peas (4) and Pickled Ginger (3 Tbsp) .
