Grilled salmon is a fast and flavour-packed midweek meal that’s guaranteed to satisfy, and whether you serve the salmon with rice or noodles, salad or salsa, it’s a winning dish.
One of the most versatile fish to cook, salmon is a top choice for family meals because it’s full of flavour and is a good source of protein, plus it’s packed with omega-3. Salmon is great pan-fried, seared, grilled or baked and can take on a whole range of flavours, from salted, spiced, coated in a sweet-salty marinade such as teriyaki or miso and honey, or in a lemon and herb crumb. Grilling salmon in the oven is one of the easiest ways to get salmon on the table as it cooks quickly, so you get a nicely browned and evenly cooked piece of fish in no time. Keep an eye on the salmon as it cooks, especially if you’re using a marinade that includes sugar as sugar burns quite quickly - you don’t want to serve scorched salmon.
This recipe uses a miso and honey glaze to give the salmon extra flavour. The glaze caramelises as the fish cooks under the grill. We’ve also included a creamy wasabi and mayo sauce to make the most of the Japanese-inspired flavours in the dish. It’s served with broccoli rice and carrots and edamame or broad beans for a hearty dish that’s also good for you.
This family-friendly recipe needs 4 skin-on salmon portions - not only is salmon skin super tasty, it protects the delicate fish flesh from getting burnt on the baking tray while it’s cooking under the grill. To make the salmon glaze, you’ll need 1 tbs of miso paste and 1 tbs of honey. Make your broccoli rice using coarsely chopped florets and stems from 1 large head of broccoli, 2 tsp sesame oil, to give it a nutty flavour, and 2 tsp finely grated ginger will give it a hint of warming spice. And for the creamy wasabi sauce, you’ll need 1 tsp of wasabi paste, ½ cup (150g) of whole-egg mayonnaise and ½ tbs of miso paste. The veggie side is made up of 2 bunches of Dutch carrots and 400g frozen edamame or broad beans.
First up, preheat your grill to medium-high so it’s nice and hot when the salmon is ready to cook. Then line a baking tray with foil. Because the salmon will cook quickly, it’s best to prepare the veggies first. Add the carrots in a large saucepan of boiling water and cook for 10 minutes, then add the edamame or broad beans in the final 2 minutes of cooking. Drain the veggies, and once cool enough to handle, peel the edamame or broad beans.
Then it’s time to get the salmon ready. Combine the miso paste and honey in a large bowl, then add the salmon in the mixture and turn to coat. Place the salmon, skin-side down, on the lined tray and cook for 5 minutes or until it’s caramelised and cooked to your liking. Remove the salmon from under the grill and set it aside for 5 minutes to rest.
Meanwhile, make the broccoli rice by processing the broccoli in a food processor until it’s finely chopped. Then heat the sesame oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the broccoli and ginger and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.
For the super easy sauce, combine the mayonnaise, wasabi and miso paste in a small bowl. You’ll need to add a little hot water to thin it out. Stir the mixture until it’s smooth and well combined.
Serve this delicious meal by dividing the broccoli mixture on among serving plates. Add the edamame or broad beans and carrots. Top with the grilled salmon and drizzle with the wasabi-mayo sauce. You could also add some spring onion curls to serve.
