We tend to eat a lot of salmon, so I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it. This low carb meal for two was ready in less than 15-minutes and the flavors were amazing.

  • 1 tablespoon white miso paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar (optional)
  • 2 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (1 - 1-1/2 inches thick)


  • Preheat the grill or broiler.
  • Add miso, orange rind, orange juice, soy sauce and sugar if using to a small bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • Brush miso mixture on top of each fillet.
  • Broil or grill for approximately 8 minutes, or until done to your likeness.

Recipe Notes

If you can't find miso paste, substitute a little soy sauce or fish sauce for the salty umami flavor. It isn't as creamy, so use less.
You can add a little tahini too, since it is similar in consistency, but the flavor is more nutty than salty.
I grilled my fish and brushed on a little more sauce just prior to taking it off.
It's so flavorful, no other seasoning is required.
If you don't have a fresh orange, use a drop or two of doTERRA Wild Orange Essential Oil in place of the juice and zest.
