Miso Salmon Over Sesame Noodles
I love this Miso Salmon! It’s simple enough for a weeknight meal, but elegant enough for entertaining. They are perfectly delicious for a nice dinner. No wonder they charge around $35 for a dish like this at a fancy restaurant. Now when you see how easy it is to make, you can do it yourself for much less!
What I do, is marinade the salmon and broil it. That’s where it gets those beautiful toasted marks while still maintaining its flavor and juiciness. The flavor is bold without being sweet and it goes great with mild sesame ginger noodles. I top them off with green onions and sesame seeds for a little crunch and a little freshness.
Miso is easily found at Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods or any other food store that carries a wide variety of Asian products. If not, you can get it HERE in Amazon.
If you don’t want to serve this Miso Salmon over Sesame Noodles you can also substitute with white rice, steamed bok choy or alongside a nice salad.
I just love the look and combination of flavors. It feels like I’m eating at a fancy restaurant in my PJ’s 🙂 . Gotta love being in PJ’s!
Last week I was slammed with work, so this week I just decided to take it easy and cook from the heart. I started cooking whatever crazy thing came up in my head. That’s why this week’s menu was so eclectic: One Pot Lasagna, Vegan meringue cookies, Colombian cheese bread and this yummy Miso Salmon over Sesame Noodles.
I hope you can try this delicious Miso Salmon over Sesame Noodles at home. If you do, please upload a pic on Instagram and tag me @Livingsweetmoments or use the hashtag #LivingSweet. I promise to repost it.
