How to cook "with visual instructions" "using familiar ingredients from your local grocery stores" healthy, traditional and delicious Japanese dishes!!

Miso Marinated Grilled Salmon (Gluten-Free)


Today I will introduce you to “Miso Marinated Grilled Salmon”.

It is very easy to make and incredibly delicious! I use only 4 ingredients. The preparation time is quick (but you need to marinate for at least an hour) and the cooking time is only 10 minutes!! In addition, I cook the salmon in a pan lined with parchment paper so there is no messy cleanup!

Marinated food with miso is very common and has a long history in Japan because it can be stored for a long time. We marinate various vegetables, meats and fish. The miso marinated vegetables are basically eaten without cooking and the miso marinated meats and fish are cooked and served. All ingredients have a lot of miso flavor and are slightly salty so very delicious!!! Lately in Japan, TOFU and EGG YOLK are becoming popular ingredients to marinate with miso.

This miso marinated grilled salmon is great for dinner by itself and also is great with your salad! The marinated salmon can be stored for 3 days in the refrigerator. So you can marinate some salmon fillets at once and cook lunch or dinner for your busiest days! Cooking takes only 10 minutes!

The recipe is


Mix the marinated sauce and marinate salmon for an hour in the refrigerator.


Cook in the pan lined with parchment paper.

  4. This is a beautiful way to prepare salmon. I live a 15 minute walk from the Fraser River and our friends often supply us with freshly caught salmon. I especially enjoy your why of preparing food. I spent a lot of time in Tokyo. My daughter lived there for many years. Bon Appetit Virginia

    • Wow! That is great for you about fresh salmon!!! I am so jealous 😉 I think you live such a beautiful place!! I have been to Canada for a year and there is beautiful river which is called Peace river. That is one of my favorite place!!
      As you know, authentic Japanese dishes sometimes need complicated preparations that are sometimes just for good final presentation. But actually it is too much work for busy days to cook at home so I am following my mother and my grandma’s ways which are simple and delicious homemade recipes 🙂
