Cooking Attempt: Miso Salmon & Green Beans w/ Beef



Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've posted a new recipe on here. To be honest, Jon has been doing most of the cooking lately. However, he walked me through his recipe, and I attempted to make his Miso Salmon for the first time! Keep in mind that I'm no chef. Just someone who likes to cook sometimes. So, take this recipe and make it your own!

I was a little hesitant to post this, to be honest, because I was milliseconds away from burning our dinner! (As you may be able to tell by the corners of my salmon in the picture) Oops. However, decided to share it anyways! It tasted great, was a quick dinner and everyone on Instagram seemed to think it looked tasty. So here it is! :)

S A L M O N   R E C I P E

What you need:
  • Two medium slabs of fresh salmon (the one I used had skin on one side)
  • Wild Yellow Miso paste (we actually got ours from Trader Joe's!)
  • Mirin (Japanese cooking wine)
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic
 Directions:
  • Preheat oven to broil on "high" and make sure your top rack is one notch higher than center.
  • Mix a heaping tablespoon of miso in a bowl with a splash or two of mirin
  • Dry your fresh salmon to prepare it for the miso paste.
  • Prep an oven-safe tray with olive oil and a small amount of minced garlic
  • Spread a thin, even, layer of miso paste onto the skinless side of the salmon. If your salmon is entirely skinless only spread the miso on one side.
  • Lay your salmon skin side down (or miso-free side down) onto your tray and place on the top rack.
  • IMPORTANT: DO NOT leave the kitchen. You'll be checking on your salmon often, and this dish will cook quickly.
  • Check on your salmon every minute to two minutes (If you must, set a timer for every minute. I'm serious!). Cooking time will vary but will probably average between 8 and 14 minutes.
  • Once your salmon looks cooked and the miso starts to look nice and golden, open the oven, pull out the rack a bit and let it sit for another minute or so after you've turned off the oven.
  • Serve!
