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.
