True Orange ginger miso glazed salmon on a slate plate

Tender flaky salmon gets dressed up in a sweet miso marinade made with the natural sweetness of Agave nectar.


1/2 cup light (shiro) miso
5 tablespoons sake
5 tablespoons mirin
1 tablespoon True Orange Ginger spice blend
1 tablespoon light agave nectar
1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
4 skinless, boneless salmon fillets
Toasted sesame seeds, as garnish

  1. Whisk the miso, sake, mirin, True Orange Ginger, agave nectar, and oil together in a large, non-reactive dish or bowl.
  2. Add the salmon and coat with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate at least a few hours, ideally overnight.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, then turn on the broiler. Place one oven rack under the broiler and another rack in the center of the oven.
  4. Wipe any excess marinade off the salmon fillets and place them in a baking dish. Place the dish on the top rack under the broiler and cook until the top of the fish is nicely browned, 3-4 minutes. Move the dish to the center rack and bake until the salmon is cooked to desired doneness, about 8-12 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve warm.
