Grilled Miso Salmon


1/2 cup mirin
2 tablespoons minced fresh chives or green (spring) onion tops
1 tablespoon yellow miso
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce (used Ponzu)
1 teaspoon tahini
1 teaspoon peeled and minced fresh ginger
4 salmon fillets, 5 ounces each, skinned (used salmon steaks)
In a shallow baking dish, whisk together the mirin, chives, miso, soy sauce, tahini and ginger. Add the fish to the marinade and turn to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours, turning the fish occasionally.

Prepare a fire in a charcoal grill or place a grill pan over high heat. Remove the fish from the marinade and pat dry. Discard the marinade. When the grill or pan is very hot, place the fillets on it and cook, turning carefully with a spatula, until grill-marked, firm to the touch, and opaque in the center, about 4 minutes on each side.

*This is not just your regular salmon marinade. I love the combination and it goes well with the salmon. Salmon is also pack in omega-3, definitely no need to drink fish oil supplements. I served it Red and White Fried Rice. enJOY!!!
