Foiled Miso Salmon

"DH and I made this for dinner last night and thought it was excellent. Another winner from Keiko O Aoki's "Easy and Healthy Japanese Food for the American Kitchen." DH and I doubled the green onions and found the salmon had to cook for significantly longer (about 20 mins) than what was posted in the recipe (though we realize oven heating times vary). This was very easy and required very little prep. I should mention that I always use reduced sodium soy sauce (I prefer San-J Tamari)."

directions

  • In a bowl, mix all marinade ingredients.
  • Cut salmon into bite-sized pieces.
  • In a shallow pan, place the fish and add the marinade. Marinate for 10 minutes.
  • Thinly slice the green onions at an angle. Remove stems from shiitake mushrooms and cut the tops in half.
  • In a baking pan, place a sheet of aluminum foil long enough to make a pouch. Place the ingredients on the foil in the following order: green onion on bottom, marinated salmon, and shiitake on top.
  • Fold the sides and ends of the aluminum foil to make a pouch; make sure to seal tightly so juices don't flow out.
  • Place inside oven 10-20 minutes at 400 degrees F or until done. Sprinkle with hot pepper flakes and serve.

    I used fresh caught pink salmon, onion, mushrooms, parsley instead of red pepper flakes. I also added 1 tbs. butter and the marinade sauce on top of all. I baked for 20 min. and although it was done I guess I'm just not use to eating steamed salmon and didn't really enjoy it. It was good but I think I would prefer it fried or baked (not in a foil package).<br/>Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.

    Terrific! I'll definitely be doing this a lot as I bought a 1 lb container of miso (didn't have a smaller size and, in Greece, when you find something you BUY it.LOL). Loved the savoury/sweet element - everyone enjoyed this. Thanks.

    Very good and easy salmon. I didn't have any sake, but otherwise followed the directions as written. I had to use reconsituted mushrooms without any problems. So easy and so good! Served with asparagus for a wonderful and easy dinner. Thanks for sharing!

    This was RREALLY delicious. 4 stars only because the recipe doesn't state how hot to set the oven, and which miso to use. I used white miso and it was delicious. The shittake mushrooms were so savory. Splenda instead of sugar for us as well. I had to use frozen fillets and baked at 450* for almost 20 minutes. Thanks for this tasty and healthy recipe.

I work full-time as a School Psychologist in Michigan. Besides the kids, one of the best aspects of the job is summer vacation, when I can concentrate on doing more of the things that I like to do---like look up recipes and play games on Recipezaar!!! I married my wonderful and handsome husband, Sean, in August 2007. He is becoming a wonderful gardender and tends to both our veggie and herb gardens. We really enjoy cooking with our own fresh ingredients. We most often cook together, so my reviews typically reflect our joint opinions. He's the better cook, so I pick up a lot of my techniques from him. My other interests include reading (now that I have time), Irish dancing (I've taken a class for the last several years), "appreciating" wine (I use the term very loosely), and listening to and going to see Irish bands (I love the Pogues). I also enjoy travelling, especially around Western Europe, where I have been multiple times. One of my favorite places is Italy, and Sean and I had a great time on our honeymoon eating, drinking, and sightseeing in the Cinque Terre and in Tuscany. This July 2009, we expanded our horizons to Eastern Europe and visited the Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Croatia. Two of my favorite dishes on the trip were Croatian: fish brodet and Hvarska gregada. I am looking forward to trying my hand at making them at home as I see that someone on Zaar, who is Croatian, posted recipes for both! Besides my husband, the other lights of my life are my cats: Chloe, Pip, and my newest ragdoll cat, Giselle, all of whom I absolutely adore. <a href="http://s341.photobucket.com/albums/o388/courjen/?action=view¤t=PipChloe_web.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i341.photobucket.com/albums/o388/courjen/PipChloe_web.jpg" border="0" alt="Pip and Chloe"></a> <a href="http://i341.photobucket.com/albums/o388/courjen/Giselle_zaar.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i341.photobucket.com/albums/o388/courjen/Giselle_zaar.jpg" border="0" alt="Giselle"></a> I've participated in the following events: <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt= "Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/calendar%20clips/Copyofsoybean.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> I most recently had the privelege of being on the ZWT5 Team, the Sultans of Spice, with a great group of people.
