Usually I make my salmon with a little lemon juice and a little dill. But our dill plant just died. So I went looking for alternatives for tonight’s dinner. I have seen this recipe at Cooking Light’s website before, and had it tucked away in the back of my mind. All I can say is, yum! After it finished cooking, I sprinkled the top with the chopped chives and also with some toasted sesame seeds and it looked so pretty. I should have taken a picture. Next time I cook it, I will.
Coming up: the stir fried zucchini and baby bok choy that I made as the side dish.
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons hot water
- 2 tablespoons miso (soybean paste)
- 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
- Cooking spray
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
Combine first 4 ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Arrange fish in a shallow baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spoon miso mixture evenly over fish.
Broil 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting twice with miso mixture. Sprinkle with chives and sesame seeds.
