This miso glazed salmon is a perfect weeknight meal because it’s packed with flavor, heaps of valuable nutrients, and it’s really easy to make!


  • 4 ( 6-ounce| 170 grams) skin-on or off salmon fillets, about 1-inch thick
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos/ soy sauce or tamari
  • 1/3 cup coconut or brown sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon white or yellow miso paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes, optional
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves
  • 4 lime wedges for serving
  • 2 tablespoons green onions, sliced
  • White sesame seeds, as needed


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F | 200°C.  Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together coconut aminos, coconut sugar, garlic, miso and red chili flakes.
  • Place salmon in a large shallow bowl and pour the the mixture over the salmon. Massage the marinade all over the salmon. Allow to marinate while the oven comes to temperature.
  • Arrange salmon fillets on the sheet ( skin side down). Bake until salmon is opaque and cooked through, about 12 -14 minutes.
  • Garnish with cilantro and green onions. Scatter with a good squeeze of lime and sprinkle with sesame seeds right before serving.
  • Serve with rice and bok choy, if desired.
