Miso-Glazed Salmon with Ginger-Sesame Spinach

Upgrade your salmon with the help of miso, ginger and sesame

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons brown miso
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 boneless salmon fillets
  • 200 grams bag of baby spinach
  • 1/2 thumb sized piece of ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Steps

  1. Preheat the grill in your oven to the highest heat and place a rack on the top shelf of the oven.
  2. Mix the miso, mirin, lemon juice, garlic and honey together. Place the salmon fillets skin side up onto a baking tray lined with some lightly greased foil. Place under the grill for 3 minutes then flip the fillets so they are skin side down. Cover with the miso glaze and return to the oven to grill for 2-3 minutes more.
  3. Boil the kettle with a mugful of water. Place the spinach into a large colander and place into the sink. Pour the boiling water over the spinach to wilt it. Place into a bowl and toss with the ginger, sesame oil and season with salt to taste.
  4. Serve the salmon on top of the spinach and top with the sesame seeds.
