2 tablespoons white miso paste
3 tablespoons boiling water
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/4 cup sesame oil
1/4 cup grated ginger
4 x 175 gm salmon fillets, skinless
1 tablespoon tamari
4 cups Asian greens (bok choy, choy sum, broccolini)
1/2 cup coriander
1 bird's eye chilli, thinly sliced
Preheat the oven to 180c (160c fan-forced). Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Place the miso paste in a large heatproof bowl, pour in the boiling water and whisk to make a thin paste. Add the maple syrup, w tablespoons of the sesame oil and half the ginger and whisk again to combine. Add the salmon to the bowl and rub the glaze into the fillets. Set aside to marinade for at least 15 minutes (the longer the better).
Spread out the salmon on the prepared tray and spoon over the remaining glaze. transfer to the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the fish is cooked through.
Meanwhile, combine the tamari and remaining sesame oil and ginger in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the greens and toss for a few minutes or until cooked to your liking.
Divide the salmon and greens among serving plates and garnish with coriander and chilli.
I love this dish for it's simplicity and taste. I wish I could take the credit for it but that goes to Michele Chevally Hedge.
