Pineapple and Soy-Glazed Salmon



This is a tasty Asian twist on salmon!



The popular white miso in this recipe is slightly salty, a bit sweet ~ having a mild taste that blends well with pineapple juice for a delicious glaze.  It provides an ideal accompaniment to salmon by giving depth and flavor to the dish.  Plus, it’s a healthy addition, being packed with vitamins and protein.



This recipe was featured in Country Living magazine.  If you’re looking for a great new salmon recipe to try in your kitchen, this could be perfect for you!
We each ate one salmon fillet for dinner; and the next day, ate one for lunch, atop mesclun greens.  Doesn’t get much better than this!


Pineapple and Soy-Glazed Salmon'
Ingredients:
1¼ cups pineapple juice
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
¼ cup dry sherry
1 teaspoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons miso paste
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
½ teaspoon seasoned pepper


Method:
Marinate the salmon: 

In a medium saucepan over high heat, cook the pineapple juice, soy and sherry for 20 minutes.
Stir in brown sugar and cook for 5 more minutes.
Using a whisk, stir in miso.
Remove from heat, allow mixture to cool.
Season salmon fillets with the pepper and place them in a shallow baking dish.
Pour pineapple glaze over the fillets, turning to coat each side, and chill for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Roast the fillets:
Place the salmon on the top shelf of the oven and cook until the flesh turns opaque, about 7 minutes.
Change the oven temperature setting to broil.
Cook salmon under broiler until the glaze begins to brown – 2 to 3 minutes.
Serve immediately.

ENJOY!

  1. We like salmon most any way. And, I'm always happy to have new uses for miso. In fact, I have some right now that I used for soup a few times. Love the taste.

    Best,

    1. Shug, usually I buy Wild Alaska Salmon, if not that, farmed Atlantic. Both are good, but the Alaska salmon: Coho is delicious and so is Sockeye with its great red color. Hope this helps a little! You have a Blessed week!

  4. Pam, We really like salmon and the pineapple and soy glazed salmon with Miso looks great! Our favorite salmon is Copper River salmon from Alaska. Unfortunately, its only available a few weeks each year. The good news is that this glaze would pop up the flavor of any good fresh piece of salmon. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

    I am sorry I haven't been around lately, but so hectic right now...This recipe is exceptional. I love Salmon any way you can make it, plus love the Asian flavor, and the Pineapple so this one is a "must make" on my list. I always enjoy the sweetness especially with the brown sugar.

    1. Dottie, thanks! I really like asparagus too and love this time of year when it's perfectly fresh. And a little sweetness goes great with the pineapple and salmon. Can't wait until the grill is fired up for salmon on the grill. Take care
