Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 12 minutes
Servings 1 big piece of salmon


  • 1 large piece of fresh salmon
  • 1/2 tbsp miso paste
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • ground pepper to taste


  1. Place the salmon on a plate and combine the other ingredients into a separate bowl. 

  2. Pour the glaze over the salmon and using your hands, coat over the whole piece of salmon.

  3. Heat some olive oil in a pan on the stove, medium heat. When the pan is hot, place the salmon in the pan and pour the remainder of the glaze from the plate onto the top of the salmon. 

  4. Let the salmon cook on one side for 5-7 minutes, flip and let cook on the other side until done. REMINDER: Salmon is one of those proteins that can come off of heat early because it will continue to cook, so if it looks a little underdone, then that's the perfect time to remove it from the heat.

  5. Enjoy!
