Easy Lime Miso Salmon

  • Author: Ingrid DeHart
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


This is an easy salmon recipe with a bright, salty-sweet, rich umami flavor. A quick, nutritious meal you can make in 15 minutes.


  • 2 Tablespoons sweet white miso or yellow miso
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon gluten free tamari
  • 2 Tablespoons mirin*
  • 3 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 medium garlic clove, grated or finely minced
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet, skin removed


  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the miso, maple syrup, tamari, mirin, lime juice, ginger, and garlic until smooth, then add the dill.
  3. Make a small tray with parchment paper or aluminum foil, just large enough to hold the salmon with 1-inch sides. Cut the parchment larger than the salmon and fold up each side 1″ twice (see photos above).
  4. Place the tray onto a baking sheet and add the salmon skin side down.
  5. Pour half the sauce on the salmon, coating the top fully.
  6. Roast in the oven for 10 minutes. Add the rest of the sauce, spreading over the top.
  7. Cook until the salmon is beginning to flake, but still has a little translucency in the middle, about 5 minutes more. Don’t overcook, it will continue cooking after you remove it from the oven.
  8. Serve with the sauce. I serve it right from the parchment paper, but you can transfer it to a platter if you prefer.
  9. Left over salmon will keep refrigerated for 2 days. Serve cold or heat in a toaster oven or sauté pan, covered on low heat.


Mirin is a naturally fermented rice wine. The small amount of alcohol evaporates when heated.  It has a unique taste that is mildly sweet with a hint of sour and salty. You can buy it in most natural food stores. Choose a brand without any sugar or preservatives.  If unavailable, substitute 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar and 1 teaspoon maple syrup.
