miso salmon

I love salmon season, big fillets of wild sockeye salmon at Choice's Market for $9 - summer time love! Everybody Loves Sandwiches posted a recipe this week for miso chicken that looked delicious and I wanted to do something along the same lines with salmon. Here's what I came up with, our bbq isn't working so I threw ours under the broiler.

Miso Ginger Salmon and Soba Noodle Salad
Serves 4
Marinade and Salad Dressing
1/4 cup white miso
2 tbsp mirin
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp soy sauce
3 green onions finely chopped
2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
2 tsp sesame oil
1 large fillet of fresh wild salmon
salt and pepper

Whisk miso, mirin, vinegar, soy, green onions, ginger, and sesame oil in a small bowl. Put half of the sauce aside.
Put the salmon onto an aluminum foil covered sheet tray and pour half the marinade over the salmon, marinate for about 15 minutes to half an hour in the fridge.

Turn broiler to high and move a rack right under the element. Drain extra marinade off and broil for 8-10 minutes or until desired doneness.

Miso Ginger Soba Noodle Salad
340 g package of soba noodles, cooked according to package directions
1 red pepper finely chopped
large handful of fresh peas
2 cups chopped broccoli, lightly steamed
3 green onions finely chopped
3 tbsp sesame seeds
juice of a lime
remaining marinade/dressing

In a large bowl mix  noodles, red pepper, peas, broccoli, green onions, sesame seeds, lime juice and remaining marinade. Would be tasty with some cilantro too!
