Simple dishes are the best. I recently rediscovered this miso and honey salmon dish and I was so delighted at how easy it is that I made the dish several times over several consecutive weeks. The best part (besides the taste) is that it starts and ends with three ingredients miso paste, good ole honey, and a filet of salmon.
And mixed them together in a bowl. But feel free to add more honey if you like it sweeter, or more miso if you want to bring out more of the savory. 1 tablespoon of each is enough to coat the fish, but I found over several dishes that doubling or tripling the portion will help really smother the filet and let the flavor soak in! If your dinner partner is anything like Charlie, his/her joy is a function of how much sauce you put into anything hehe.
Using a basting brush, coat the filet on both sides with the paste. As you can see, ahem, I substituted this time for a catfish filet. Fresh salmon from Whole Foods can add up and your wallet will take a hit hehe.
Then wrap it up in plastic wrap and stick it in the fridge overnight! When you’re ready to prepare it, place it on a sheet of aluminum foil, pulling out enough foil to loosely fold it over the top of the fish. This will keep the moisture in so that the fish meat is juicy and sizzling with all that coveted omega-3 fish fat. Bake it at 375 for 15 minutes-18 minutes. Check it often so as not to overbake and dry it out!
