healthy miso glazed salmon


  • 1 whole salmon fillet (about 2 lbs, skin on or off) 
  • ¼ cup miso paste
  • 2 tablespoons honey (or other liquid sweetener of your choice) 
  • ¼ cup soy sauce or liquid aminos
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar 
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2-inch knob of ginger, grated
  • Optional: Sesame seeds and sliced green onions for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C)
  2. Start by preparing your glaze. In a small bowl, combine the miso paste, honey, soy sauce or aminos, rice vinegar, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Whisk until smooth and fully combined.
  3. Lay the salmon fillet (skin-side down if it has skin), on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Using a brush or spoon, generously spread the miso glaze over the top and sides of the salmon fillet. 
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 18-22 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily when tested with a fork. The exact cooking time may vary depending on how thick your fillet is. 
  5. Once cooked, remove the salmon from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes. Sprinkle on any additional garnishes and enjoy!
