Ingredients:

  • Salmon
    • 4 fresh skin-on, center-cut salmon fillets
    • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
    • 3 tablespoons mirin
    • 1/2 cup white miso paste
    • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
    • 1 clove garlic, grated
    • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon Korean chili flakes, gochugaru (optional)
  • Broccolini Salad
    • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    • 3 teaspoons soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
    • 1 clove garlic, grated
    • 1 chili, seeded and finely diced
    • 2 bunches broccolini (about 1 pound total), trimmed
  • Garnish
    • Fresh chives, chopped
    • Black and white sesame seeds

Instructions:

For the salmon:

1. Wash and thoroughly pat dry the salmon fillets, remove any bones with tweezers.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the sesame oil, mirin, miso paste, ginger, garlic, vegetable oil and chili flakes.

3. Place salmon fillets in a large zip-top plastic bag, and pour the miso sauce mixture over. Seal and let marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight.

For the broccolini salad:

In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic and chili. Toss in the broccolini until coated. Set aside until ready to grill.

To cook and serve:

1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Dip a folded piece of paper towel in oil, and using tongs, wipe the grill with vegetable oil generously multiple times. This will create a non-stick surface and your grill should be black and glossy.

2. Remove salmon from the marinade and place on the grill skin side down and cook for about 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook until desired doneness, another 3-4 minutes for medium depending on thickness.

3. Place the broccolini on the grill and cook until tender and charred lightly, about 7-8 minutes depending on thickness.

4. Plate the salmon fillets with the broccolini, garnish with chopped chives and sesame seeds and serve immediately.
