Miso Maple-Glazed Salmon

Miso Maple-Glazed Salmon: As good for you as it tastes.

Salmon is good for your body and mind. It’s packed full of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to improve brain function, regulate blood pressure, reduce cholesterol and protect against the UV rays from the sun. Salmon also contains vitamin D, which we need for healthy bones.

No…salmon is not a local, fresh fish offering. However, the experts at Motts Channel Seafood source only the best salmon and we get it from highly vetted fisheries in Norway.  It truly lives up to our motto, “As fresh as it gets.”

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. Serves two.

      1. In a shallow glass dish, stir together the honey, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, ginger, garlic and olive oil. Season fish fillets with salt and pepper, and place them into the dish. If the fillets have skin on them, place them skin side down.

      3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove fish from the dish, and reserve marinade. Fry fish for 4 to 6 minutes on each side, turning only once, until fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove fillets to a serving platter and keep warm.
      4. Pour reserved marinade into the skillet, and heat over medium heat until the mixture reduces to a glazed consistently. Spoon glaze over fish, and serve immediately.
