Miso glazed salmon is a meal that can be made within minutes. This is the perfect recipe for busy days, late work nights and anything in between. I love to serve this salmon on a bed of brown rice and asparagus or with soba noodles studded with bright green edamame. Miso glazed salmon is so quick and easy that you'll be adding it regularly to your weekly recipe rotation.
