Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium saucepan combine miso, vinegar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 1/3 cup water. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until miso and sugar have dissolved; cool to room temperature. In a resealable plastic bag combine salmon and miso mixture. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

  • Meanwhile, in a blender, combine cilantro, lime juice, shallot, chili, garlic, ginger, oil, and remaining teaspoon of brown sugar. Blend until mixture is smooth.

  • Heat broiler with the rack in the highest position. Lift salmon from marinade; broil salmon until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Serve with cilantro sauce.
