This ‘Miso Marinated Salmon’ is delicious, but it is easy to burn. I recently discovered this baking paper method to cook Fish. My large thick-base frying pan used to be Non-stick but not anymore. Cover it with baking paper, so that it turns perfectly Non-stick. And this way, fish fillets cook nicer than directly on the frying pan. I don’t know why.


4 Servings


4 Salmon Fillets

Miso Marinade
2 tablespoons Miso *White Miso OR lighter coloured Miso
1 tablespoon Sake (Rice Wine)
1 tablespoon Mirin
1 small piece Ginger *grated

  1. Sprinkle a pinch of Salt over the Salmon Fillets.
  2. Make Miso Marinade by mixing all the ingredients. Cover the Salmon fillets with the marinade, place in a sealed container, and leave in the fridge for overnight or at least 4 hours.
  3. *Note: Depending on the size of the Salmon Fillets, you would need more Miso Marinade.
  4. Before you cook, remove the marinade from the Salmon fillets as miso mixture is easy to burn. Grill until cooked and golden brown. Cooking time varies depending on the size of the fillets and cooking methods. Today I used a large frying pan to cook.
  5. Frying Pan Method: Use a large and thick-base frying pan. Place a sheet of baking paper on the frying pan, heat over medium low heat, and cook Salmon Fillets until both sides (and the skin) are nicely browned.
