Miso glazed salmon bowl

If your mouth doesn’t water by the thought of Nobu’s black cod when hearing the word “miso-glazed” then we definitely can’t be friends.

I was craving some Asian flavors today and I wanted something healthy yet comforting and satisfying.

After looking hopelessly through my kitchen I noticed this beautiful whole piece of salmon that my parents had just brought back from the grocery store. It suddenly clicked, MISO-glazed salmón! The rest just came without a thought. Brown rice, soft boiled egg, avocado. Brilliant.

I must say, my glaze was pretty damn good. Nobu would be impressed.

What you need:

  • Salmon (I used enough for 4-5 people)
  • 1/4 cup Miso paste
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 3 tbsp sake
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 cups of brown rice
  • 1 avocado
  • scallions and sesame seeds for garnish
  • Soft boil egg (optional, 1 per bowl)

What to do:

  1. In a bowl, mix miso paste, soy sauce, brown sugar, mirin, and sake.
  2. Pour over salmon and marinate for a minimum of 1 hour in the fridge. The more you let it sit the better it will taste.
  3. Pre-heat oven to 400 F.
  4. Start cooking brown rice to the box instructions. I season mine by throwing in half a white onion, salt, white pepper, garlic cloves, ground ginger, and ground mustard. (I just eyeball my seasonings so I don’t really know how much of anything I threw in there, feel free to experiment)
  5. Sear your salmon in a hot skillet. 2-3 minutes each side
  6. Transfer salmon to the oven and let it bake for 10 minutes or until desired doneness.
  7. While you wait for the salmon and rice to be done, boil your egg. I like mine soft.
  8. Assemble your bowl. Rice on the bottom, soft-boiled egg, salmon, and avocado slices to the side.
  9. Finish it with some scallions, sesame seeds, and a drizzle of soy sauce and sriracha
  10. Enjoy!
