An ideal dish to make for guests, these baked salmon fillets with a sweet-and-savoury miso glaze are served with butter-braised leeks on the side.

Ingredients

Salmon, raw

4 fillet(s), medium

Root Ginger

2 teaspoons, grated

Light Soy Sauce

8 ml

Butter

1 tablespoons, softened

Miso

1½ tablespoons, white

Honey

1 teaspoons, level

Rice Wine Vinegar

1 teaspoons

Spring Onions

2 medium, trimmed and sliced

Coriander, fresh

1 tablespoons

Leek

3 medium, large, trimmed and thinly sliced

Butter

2 teaspoons, softened

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6.
  2. To make the braised leeks, combine the leeks, butter and 25ml water in a large nonstick pan, then season well. Cook, stirring regularly, over a medium heat for 10 minutes, until soft and translucent.
  3. Meanwhile, put the salmon on a baking tray. Combine 1 teaspoon of the ginger with the soy sauce and spoon over the salmon. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the salmon is cooked through.
  4. While the leeks are braising and the salmon is baking, combine the butter, remaining ginger, miso paste, honey and rice vinegar in a small bowl. Spoon the butter over the salmon and return to the oven to bake for a final 2 minutes.
  5. Divide the leeks between plates, top with the salmon and serve garnished with the spring onions and coriander.

Notes

For a more substantial dish, fold the braised leeks through 400g boiled and mashed potatoes (no added ingredients).
