Crispy Garlic-Miso Glazed Salmon - Honest Cooking Recipe (2024)

A honey-sweetened, ginger, garlic, miso and soy sauce marinade creates a crisp and caramelized crust after a quick oven roasting. This meal is simple and quick to make with little active time.

This just might be the easiest, most flavorful salmon you will ever make. Create a honey-sweetened, ginger, garlic, miso and soy sauce marinade which creates a nice crisp and caramelized crust after roasting. Once you cut into your salmon filet you end up with lovely juicy and tender meat. It’s almost like a piece of candy melting in your mouth.

The marinade is so easy to make. Baking salmon is really easy and requires little hands-on effort. Your baking time can vary depending on how thick your salmon filet is. The standard rule of thumb calls 10 minutes per inch of thickness. And that’s the secret to an extremely juice and flaky salmon.

I discovered that I like this recipe far more if I used a thinner salmon filet. That means more crust and more flavor.

The recipe is also perfect to serve to guests. You can of course marinated the fish overnight. You will just spend 1 minute in the kitchen to roast your salmon and once it’s in the oven your hands and kitchen is free for other things and enjoying time with your friends. I really like to serve this fish with some spinach, which is also prepared and cooked in no time.

Step by Step Guide to Making Crispy Garlic-Miso Glazed Salmon

  1. Prepare the Marinade: In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, miso paste, ginger, and garlic until well combined.
  2. Marinate the Salmon: Place the salmon filet in a Ziplock bag. Pour the marinade over the salmon, seal the bag, and ensure the filet is well coated. Refrigerate and marinate for at least 30 minutes, preferably overnight.

  3. Prepare for Cooking: Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Create a ‘boat’ out of aluminum foil or line a baking pan with foil.

  4. Sear the Salmon: Heat a heavy pan with a small amount of peanut oil over high heat. Once hot, sear the top of the salmon for 30 seconds to 1 minute until a crust forms.

  5. Bake the Salmon: Transfer the seared salmon to the aluminum foil, crust side up. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, basting with sauce halfway through.

  6. Reduce the Sauce: Pour the remaining marinade into a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then simmer for about 5 minutes until the sauce is reduced.

Recipe Notes:

  • Adjust searing time based on your pan and stove; check after 30 seconds to avoid over-crisping.
  • Ensure the salmon is marinated well for the best flavor.
