Miso Baked Salmon
Source the freshest salmon you can find. Remove from the freezer or refrigerator, and let sit until defrosted/lightly chilled.
Lightly salt the salmon on both sides, including the bottom exterior skin. Put in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to dehydrate the fish. Then take it out and dry with a paper towel.
In a small bowl, whisk together the white miso, butter, and garlic. Let it sit at room temperature. Slice the yellow onion finely. Wash and slice additional vegetables of your choice. We suggest multicolored peppers and a hearty serving of broccoli.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spread sesame oil and sliced yellow onion evenly in the middle of the foil.
Rub the dried salmon with garlic miso butter and then lay it down on the bed of onion and sesame oil.
Place additional vegetables on top of the salmon. Fold the sides of the foil over the salmon, covering completely and sealing the packet closed. Place into the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and serve immediately. To round out the dish, feel free to add a bowl of white or brown rice or quinoa. Enjoy!
