Sweet and savory glazed salmon featuring moist, flaky salmon and a sweet caramelized top. Ready in 25 minutes and made with just 7 ingredients, this recipe proves you can eat well any night of the week. 



  • Combine miso, mirin, honey, soy sauce, and sesame seeds in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until miso is dissolved into sauce. Increase heat to medium and bring to a simmer; remove from heat and let cool slightly. 
  • Meanwhile, heat oven to 425ºF (218ºC) with racks set in upper middle and middle position. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with nonstick spray.
  • Arrange salmon, skin-side down on a prepared sheet and season with ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  • Roast salmon on middle rack for 5 minutes. Remove sheet from oven and turn oven to broil. Lightly dab moisture off of the surface of salmon with paper towels. Spread glazed evenly over salmon; transfer sheet to upper-middle rack and broil until spotty brown on top and salmon is cooked through, 3–5 minutes.  
  • Sprinkle scallions over top. 


SALMON: I recommend using wild-caught salmon for this recipe. Their thinner fillets ensure the fish gets cooked through in the short time it takes for the glaze to caramelize. 
GLUTEN-FREE: to keep this gluten-free, be sure to use certified gluten-free miso and soy sauce.
