Five ingredients come together in less than 15 minutes to become one powerhouse dish. A stir-together mixture of mirin, miso (left over from Maricel Presilla’s versatile Miso Dressing), and sesame oil gilds broiled salmon fillets with sweetness and savor.
  • 1/3 cup mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
  • 1/4 cup white miso
  • 1/2 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
  • 4 (6- to 7-oz) salmon fillets with skin
  • 1 scallion, chopped
  • accompaniment:

    lemon wedges
  • Preheat broiler. Line bottom and sides of a 4-sided sheet pan with foil, then oil foil.
  • Stir together mirin, miso, and sesame oil until smooth. Put salmon skin down on sheet pan and season with 1/2 tsp pepper. Spread miso mixture over salmon and broil 6 inches from heat until just cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve sprinkled with scallion.
