Miso Glazed Salmon

We are such lucky we live in a place where waters are very clean and in pristine condition hence we enjoy the best seafood our oceans and lakes have to offer, from the popular New Zealand mussels, Bluff Oysters, Snappers, Paua (Abalone) and Mount Cook Salmons we have the best in here.

Now let’s focus on that salmon because I am proud of our salmon here in New Zealand. I had my fair share of travel (27 counties and counting) and on most of those places I tried some salmon, why because we love this fish and I can safely say that no one can ever beat the quality of the salmon we have here, even comparing it to the ones we got in Tsukiji Market. It is fatty, it is delicious and very fresh all of the time. I know there will be another country that has a better salmon perhaps Canada but I haven’t been there yet so I will leave my conclusion open at the moment.

Once in a while we have salmon in our dining table like today we are preparing a simple dish of Miso Glazed Salmon where salmon is marinated in a combination of miso, mirin, soy sauce and ginger and grilled. One of the perfect way to flavour this delicate fish. Its tasty but not overpowering as you can still taste the full flavour of salmon and its fats, the sweet and savoury marinade just complements it very well.

  1. I like miso-glazed anything! Haven’t had salmon made this way for some reason — love the idea. Thanks!

  2. Salmon is one of our favourite fish and I’m jealous you get to buy such good quality salmon where you live! I just need a bowl of rice to go with this beautiful miso salmon!

    That looks gorgeous! I usually just rub with salt and pepper and some herbs, never tried miso.
