  • 3 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup white miso paste
  • 3 Tbsp Sriracha
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 6 6-oz salmon fillets, about 1 inch thick
  • Steamed rice, to serve
  • Sliced green onions, for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the broiler. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil, and set aside.

  2. In a small nonreactive mixing bowl, combine the oil, brown sugar, soy sauce, miso paste, Sriracha and garlic.

  3. Place the salmon on the prepared baking sheet, and baste with the Sriracha mixture. Broil 6 inches from the flame, basting the fish once more after 2-3 minutes. Broil for a total of 6-10 minutes, depending on the efficiency of your broiler. (I have an infrared broiler; I cooked the fish for 5 minutes total.) Watch the fish carefully while you cook. The basting liquid is prone to smoking (or burning) because of the sugar in it.

  4. Serve over steamed rice, and garnish with green onions.
