Miso Buttered Salmon


So now that you know how to make miso butter,  what do you do with it?  The truth is, there are a myriad of things that you could use miso butter on, one of my favorites is on veggies.  Especially corn.  Page loves corn, and I buy organic non gmo corn at the farmers market whenever it’s in season.  I shave it and freeze it.  Then I throw it in a pot with no water and allow the water to cook off, once it has I add in miso butter, and let the butter  brown.  The kernels get the nutty flavor from the brown butter, with an unami flavor from the miso–talk about delicious!!  Besides corn, I love it on green beans, sauteed spinach, asparagus, brussel sprouts, cabbage–just about any veggie you can think of, miso butter makes it better.   Do you know what else miso butter makes better?  Meat! Almost every kind of meat.  Steak with miso butter is a revelation! Seafood with miso butter is ascension!   This recipe is so delicious, I find it hard to eat salmon any other way.  Every bite of this deserves it’s own moment of silence, it’s own moment of indulgence.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 10-12 minutes


1 lb salmon steak, patted dry

2-3 Tablespoons of miso butter

1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt more if you desire

Directions: Pre-heat oven to 425F.  Season salmon steak with garlic salt.


Using a butter knife apply a thin layer of miso butter on the top and sides of the salmon.


Place the salmon on a foil lined baking sheet, then place in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through.  In my experience 10 minutes is usually the perfect time, you only want to go longer if you salmon steak is thicker than 1 inch.  Longer than 15 minutes and your salmon is probably over cooked.


Remove the salmon from the oven.  It should be nice and caramelized on top.  Serve and enjoy!





Salmon Sorentina

Salmon Sorrentino

This week has been so hectic on the work front for me, so I apologize for not posting a recipe sooner, but sometimes life really does get in the way of me posting. One of my favorite types of restaurants are those hidden gems nestled within a quaint neighborhood. For some reason the city that I live in is scattered with exactly those types of restaurants. Literally there is a home lined street and at the end of that street is a restaurant. The locals here love these little gems and know exactly where they are. So there is little fear that any of these restaurants will actually ever go out of business. We have this amazing little Italian Cafe near our house, and one of my favorite things on the menu there is Salmon Sorentino. All the elements in the dish speak to me. I love the saltiness of the kalmata olives, and the brininess of the capers, they all work together perfectly in the cream sauce. This recipe is my version of the restaurant version.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes

1lb of salmon
1 cup of heavy cream
1 clove of garlic chopped
3 tablespoons of capers drained
1/2 cup of kalmata olives
5 basil leaves chopped
2 tablespoons of olive oil

Directions:  Add oil and garlic to a frying pan and cook until you can smell the garlic 15-20 seconds. Add in cream, salmon, olives, and capers, cook for 7-10 minutes or until salmon is cooked through. Add in basil, turn off fire and enjoy on a bed of pasta, or spinach, or with some steamed veggies.  If you love this, you will probably love my recipe for Chicken with Lemon Caper Cream Sauce

Salmon cakes with a yogurt lime sauce

This is one my favorite meals. It’s super easy to make, and it is so delicious. I’ve made this with canned salmon, several times, and it always turns out yummy. However, when I make this with fresh salmon, as I did tonight, it is over the top amazing!! If you want to make this with fresh salmon, it will add about 10-15 minutes to your cooking time. But it’s worth it! This recipe is gluten free, I use coconut flour, but feel free to use any flour that you’d like.

Here’s what you need:
1lb of fresh Salmon, or 16 ounces of canned wild caught Salmon, drained completely.
2 Tbsp of fresh cilantro
2 Tbsp of fresh parsley
2 eggs
1/2 cup of sliced green onions/ or 1/2 of one small onion chopped finely
2-4 cloves garlic, minced I used 4…we love garlic
1 tsp sea salt 
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp ground cumin
3-5 TBS coconut flour This is a grain-free flour. You could also use 1/4-1/2 cup bread crumbs.
Olive oil/ butter/ safflower oil for browning the cakes

For the yogurt sauce you need
1 6 ounce cup of plain yogurt.  You can substitute with creme fraiche, or sour cream. 
1 large clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
juice of 1 lime
1/4 tsp coarse salt

Lightly season the salmon fillet and bake in the oven @ 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes. It doesn’t have to be completely cooked through because you’re going to brown it on the stove later. Remove from oven and let cool until you can handle it without burning your self.

While your Salmon is cooling, in a small bowl add yogurt, chopped cilantro, lime juice, and minced garlic clove. Mix together, and refrigerate until, your ready to use it:
Once cooled, remove the skin from the Salmon and flake:

Add cumin, cilantro, parsley, garlic, onion, red pepper flakes, and salt to the salmon:

In a separate bowl beat eggs, then add them to the Salmon and herbs:

Mix well, then add coconut flour one tablespoon at a time. You may not need all 5 tablespoons, just depends on how moist your eggs are, so stop once the mixture comes together. If your using canned Salmon you will probably only need 4 tablespoons. If your mixture is too wet to form patties, then add more flour. should look like this:

Now your ready to form patties:

Heat your skillet and add oil. Place cakes into skillet and let brown, about 3-4 minutes on each side.

Remove from skillet and serve with a nice dollop of the yogurt sauce and enjoy!
