How to make Salmon with Minty Miso Glaze

see the full story at

Whisk the sesame seeds, miso, mirin, and sugar together with a fork (you might need to use the back of the fork to mash up the miso a little first). Add the mint, cilantro and garlic stir to combine.

If you’re BBQing, get your fire going and make sure you have a cooler area of the fire to put the fish on.

If you’re using the broiler, put your oven rack in the middle of the oven and turn the broiler on high. Get a pan with a wire rack on top ready (I just use a shelf out of the toaster oven on top of a baking sheet).

Just before you’re ready to throw the salmon in the oven, give it a nice thick coating of glaze, especially on top (the meat side). Place the salmon, on the rack, skin side down.

Cook until the glaze is nice and brown and the salmon is just barely translucent at it’s thickest part 7-12 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon and the temperature of your heat source. If the glaze starts to burn before the salmon is done, lay a piece of foil on top of the salmon.
