Soy sauce, mirin, white miso and honey combine to create a sweet-savory balance in this super-simple recipe. Some of the glaze mixture is reserved for serving—drizzle it over the salmon itself or onto a side of sautéed greens or broccoli.




Don't use salmon fillets from the tail end of the fish, as they are thinner and will overcook under the broiler. Purchase center-cut fillets and try to get pieces of the same thickness so they cook at the same rate.

Easy and beautiful
I make this at least once a month. It tastes delicious and is very striking .

Hands down one of the best entrees ever.
So, so, so good. Accompanied by wasabi mashed potatoes and skillet roasted brussels sprouts, this comes as close to the “perfect meal” as one can get.

Easy & Delicious
This recipe couldn't have been any easier. I don't typically like green onions but the sesame seed and green onion combo was very nice. The miso mixture went very well with the salmon. The only change I made was to warm up the remaining miso mixture prior to drizzling onto the salmon so it would not cool down the salmon.

This was so good
Excellent salmon recipe. My kid and hubby were fighting for the dressing. I will have to double it. It goes very well over rice.

Made this when it was a really hot day and there was no way we'd fire up the oven. Cooked on the grill for about 9min and it was absolutely terrific. Paired with the Milk Street Smashed Cucumber Salad and it made for a very satisfying meal on a day that was not meant to be spent in the kitchen! Will be adding it to the rotation for sure.

This was really good! I think the crunch of the sesame seeds was an added bit I almost didn’t do...glad I did. I thought there wasn’t enough miso, so I added a little more. Mistake. It would have been great just the way it was written. Will be making this again. It was easy and fast. Perfect middle of the week meal for us.

Love this recipe - so easy, and works beautifully with the salmon - so much more flavor than my usual pan-fry of salmon with salt and pepper.

Just made this recipe and it tasted delicious! Great flavors and super easy to prepare. I made it for a friend who is very picky with salmon and said he hadn't eaten salmon for nearly 5 years because of past bad experiences and was so relieved when he said he loved the dish!

I have done a recipe like with from Pepin, but he uses red miso, which is what I have. Would red work well here? Thanks, this looks great!

Have made this recipe twice and will absolutely do it again. Served it with brown rice and roasted broccolini. All worked so well with the sauce.

Made this last night for the first time and it was fantastic. Loved the glaze. I'll definitely make it again. Plus, it was pretty easy to do.

This is too sweet. I'd halve the honey at minimum. But once you brush the salmon, I can't imagine needing to then pour more glaze on it (we didn't and it was already too sweet). I think the flavor was fine but had no complexity because it was basically pure sugar.

Sona E.

Very good. Definitely not too sweet, if anything, the miso adds quite a bit of salty flavor. Drizzling the sauce over the fish after cooking really adds great flavor. Made this with brown Basmati rice.

I made this tonight. It was delicious! A few modifications: I cooked it on the bbq (‘cause we are in Arizona and why would I put the oven on??!) as a result salmon had lots of the glaze when it was finished cooking so I did not add the extra glaze. (I froze the extra for another lucky piece of salmon.) I did not have mirin so I substituted rice vinegar. This recipe is a keeper -thanks Milk Street!

Why is the recipe not in the new inclusive cook book?

Lynn C.

Hi Chris -

The Milk Street Cookbook (5th edition) includes all of the recipes from Season 1 - Season 5 of the Milk Street TV show. Unfortunately this recipe was not featured on the show so it was not included.

This salmon was absolutely delicious! Based on other comments, I used only a teaspoon of mirin and added a half teaspoon of rice vinegar to balance things out. It was perfect. I could only find thinner cuts so I pan-fried to avoid overcooking. Served with basmati rice and Milkstreet's 'cilantro, scallion and cucumber salad'.

Made this last night. Couldn't find Mirin, so I substituted with the same amount of Marsala wine. Worked well. I also used Everything but the Bagel in place of the sesame seeds and that was worked well too. This was a huge hit with my family. I'm not a big fan of salmon myself, but this made it great for me, ate every bite! I made this with Pearl Couscous "Risotto" and Sesame And Cumin Roasted Green Beans With Tahini Sauce both here on the Milk Street site. All three dishes are keepers for us.
