This Miso Ginger Salmon is one of my most favorite dishes at a local Japanese restaurant. It’s the perfect blend of salty and tangy and works like a dream with the slightly sweet and smoky salmon. Ideally, I’d cook this on a grill, but when I’m too busy (or lazy) to head out to my grill, a simple broiling in the oven works fantastically!

I love giving the fish a nice charred edge, and marinating the salmon beforehand really helps give it excellent flavor. Serve over steamed rice alongside some roasted vegetables or your favorite Asian-style salad.
