a mega healthy and flavorful recipe for garlicky miso marinated salmon with a big salad of fresh romaine and arugula, cucumbers, red cabbage and a lime and olive oil vinaigrette.


  • marinade:
  • 1/2 tsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbs white miso
  • 2 tbs mirin
  • 3 tbs sake
  • 2 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • few grinds black pepper
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 lb salmon, de-boned, washed and dried (either cut into individual filets, or kept as one big filet)
  • salad:
  • 4 cups of salad greens (I used a mixture of romaine and arugula)
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 medium sized cucumber thinly sliced
  • a little bit of sliced red onion
  • 2 tbs lime juice
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp honey
  • big pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tbs hulled hemp hearts or sesame seeds(optional)


  1. whisk all marinade ingredients together in a large bowl and add salmon filet, turning to coat. leave salmon flesh side down to marinate for at least 30 minutes, up to 8 hours.
  2. preheat oven to high broil.
  3. place salmon on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and broil for about 4-5 minutes, or until starting to nicely brown. watch closely throughout this time as broiling temperatures can vary from oven to oven!
  4. take salmon out and check for doneness. if not yet cooked through lower oven temperature to 425, and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes and check again. it should be done by this point, but if not you can put it back in for another minute or so until it’s cooked through.
  5. prep salad ingredients and whisk together lime juice, olive oil, honey and sea salt in a small bowl or shake in a jar.
  6. toss salad with vinaigrette, top with salmon, and garnish with a sprinkle of sea salt and either hemp hearts or sesame seeds.
