  • Place your wire rack 6-8 inches away from your oven’s broiler. Preheat the broiler and line your baking sheet with aluminium foil.
  • Align your salmon on the baking sheet and broil it. Flip the fish every now and then to evenly cook it.
  • Using a kitchen thermometer, check the internal temperature of the fish. Make sure that it reaches at least 145°F before you get it off the oven.

Second Method: Grilling

  • Preheat your grill in a medium flame and brush the grate with oil in order to avoid the fish getting caught onto it.
  • Put the salmon onto the grill, placing the skin side down. Grill each side for about 3 minutes, flipping it from time to time until it attains a light brown colouring.



Miso is a Japanese condiment that transforms everyday salmon into a gourmet dish. The Japanese use miso to cure foods, and Miso Salmon is no exception. It has been used in sushi for over 1000 years, and has been used in Japanese cooking for a long time. The term means "pickled in miso", which is why it is so popular in Japan. This dish is delicious and makes the ordinary salmon taste extraordinary.
