White miso is made from soybeans fermented with rice and has a sweeter taste compared to other miso pastes. Packed with probiotics, it adds a tasty flavour to sesame and ginger crusted salmon.

Ingredients

Miso paste

1 tbs, white variety

Fresh ginger

1½ tsp, grated

Sake or Japanese rice wine

1 tbs

Skinless salmon fillet(s)

480 g, (4x120g fillets)

Sesame seeds

2 tbs

Lebanese cucumber

2 medium, cut into thin ribbons

Radish

8 small, (1 bunch), thinly sliced

Sesame oil

1 tbs

Rice wine vinegar

2 tbs

Fresh coriander

¼ cup(s)

Oil spray

Instructions

  1. Combine miso paste, 1 tsp of ginger and sake in a small bowl. Place salmon on a plate and sesame seeds on another plate. Spread miso mixture on top of salmon. Dip miso side of salmon into sesame seeds to coat.
  2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Spray with oil. Cook salmon, sesame-seed side down first, for 2-3 minutes each side, or until cooked to your liking, and sesame seeds are golden brown.
