Miso Ginger Glazed Salmon


Miso Ginger Glazed Salmon- simple, pan-seared salmon is topped with a salty, savory glaze, making a healthy, easy dinner ready in under 20 minutes!



  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 teaspoons white miso paste
  • 12 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable broth or water
  • Dash red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 4 salmon filets (approx. 1 pound)
  • 23 teaspoons olive, coconut, or avocado oil
  • Green onions for garnish (optional)


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, ginger, miso, garlic, onion powder, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, vegetable broth (or water).  Set aside.
  2. Pat salmon filets dry using a paper towel.  Salt and pepper both sides.  Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Place salmon filets in hot skillet, skin side down.  Cook for 5-6 minutes, pressing flat with a spatula.  Flip filets and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes; pour in the sauce and “swoosh” around in the pan.  Cook salmon for an additional 2-3 minutes until cooked through.
  4. Remove salmon from skillet and set aside.  Continue to reduce the sauce for an additional 1-2 minutes.  Remove from heat and spoon over salmon.  Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds as desired.  Serve with rice.


You can easily make 2 salmon filets and either halve the sauce or just have a little extra goodness 🙂 Thin out the sauce with additional broth/water if you find it too intense.
