Easy Miso Glazed Salmon

Miso Glazed Salmon | Delicacious

I am a fan of salmon, when it is prepared right. I like salmon best as sashimi; smoked salmon comes close when served with eggs benedict, rosti or in a good caesar salad. I may be changing my preferences soon though. This easy miso glazed salmon is rising fast in my list of favourite salmon dishes. The reasons? It is simple, healthy and really delicious.

Miso is wonderful not just because of its flavour, but because of its health benefits. There is a long list of benefits but I will just name a few. Scientifically, miso has been proven to reduce risks of colon, breast and prostate cancer. It is a source of probiotics, is high in anti-oxidants, lowers LDL (bad cholesterol) and strengthens the immune system. Are you rushing to your nearest Japanese food store to buy a tub of miso yet?

The longer miso is aged, the deeper its flavour and its colour. Commercially, miso is sold as shiromiso (white miso) or akamiso (red miso). You can also buy a blend of it. For this recipe, I used a blend of both white and red miso. Since the flavour of akamiso is stronger than shiromiso, you will want to adjust the amount of miso used according to the type you used.Continue Reading

Salmon Tofu Miso Casserole

The flu bug is going around and both my husband and my toddler girl are down with flu. I had initially intended to cook salmon tofu balls but seeing that they were sick, I decided that something less “heaty” would be good.

I chanced upon a recipe on epicurious and did some modifications to get this yummylicious dish that even my rather fussy toddler liked it!
