Miso Mirin Glazed Salmon
|Salmon fillets||16 Ounce (Four 4 Ounce Fillets)|
|Mirin||3 Tablespoon (Japanese Cooking Wine)|
|Light miso paste||4 Tablespoon|
|Orange juice||3 Tablespoon|
|Garlic||1 Clove (5 gm), crushed|
Wash and dry salmon fillets; season with salt and pepper.
Mix mirin, miso, orange juice and garlic in a small bowl until it resembles a paste.
Add a little more miso if necessary.
Generously coat all sides of the salmon with glaze.
Heat grill or broiler to medium-high.
Grill or broil skin side first for approximately 4-6 minutes; turn and baste with glaze once more and grill or broil flesh side until salmon flakes, but still appears moist.
This should be approximately 4 more minutes if the fillets are about 1 inch thick.
If you want things a little spicier, add 2 teaspoons of freshly grated ginger to the paste mixture before basting.
