Behind the Recipe
One Perfect Cast About An Hour Before High Tide
Wading through the chilly shallows of the Skagit River, I reeled in a beautiful sockeye salmon on my final cast of the day. I shot a proud look over to my fishing buddy. He raised an eyebrow and took a sip from his thermos. “Coffee?” I asked him. “Green tea,” he said.
Fresh caught or store bought, this minimalist salmon recipe is light, healthy, and sure to become a fast favorite. You’ll need just 5 ingredients to get things cooking.
- 3 oz. salmon
- 2 tbsp. honey
- 2 tbsp. miso
- 1 cup green tea
- 4 tbsp. lemon juice
- Mix honey, miso, green tea, and lemon juice in saucepan.
- Simmer for 5 minutes.
- Let cool for 20 minutes.
Grill salmon over direct heat (500 degrees) for 3-4 minutes each side, flipping only once.
Baste salmon with Miso Honey Sauce every minute.
Salmon is done when it no longer sticks to the grates.
Plate and enjoy!
