Zindrew Honey Miso Glazed Salmon

Looking for a quick way to spice up your dinner? This Honey Miso Glazed Salmon recipe is just what you need. Combining the rich flavors of miso paste with the sweetness of honey and the kick of Zindrew garlic chili oil, this dish is going to become one of your go-tos. Whether you opt for the OG or X Batch, the result will be amazing. Let’s get started!


  • 2 (5 oz) pieces of salmon
  • 2 tbsp miso paste
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp Zindrew garlic chili oil (OG or X Batch)
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar


1. Preheat the Oven

Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). 

2. Prepare the Glaze

In a medium-sized bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of miso paste, 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons of Zindrew garlic chili oil, and 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar. Mix well until the ingredients are thoroughly combined and form a smooth glaze. 

3. Coat the Salmon

Place the salmon pieces on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or lightly greased with oil.  Generously coat each piece of salmon with the honey miso glaze, ensuring they are evenly covered for maximum flavor. The glaze will caramelize in the oven, creating a deliciously sticky coating.

4. Bake

Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake the salmon for 15-20 minutes. The exact time will depend on the thickness of your salmon pieces. The salmon should be tender, flaky, and cooked through, with a caramelized glaze on top. To check if the salmon is done, you can gently press it with a fork; if it flakes easily, it’s ready.

5. Serve and Enjoy

Remove the salmon from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes. This resting period allows the juices to redistribute throughout the salmon, ensuring every bite is moist and flavorful. Serve hot, garnished with sesame seeds and chopped green onions if desired. These garnishes add a lovely crunch and a pop of color, making the dish not only taste fantastic but also look restaurant-worthy. Pair with steamed rice and a side of sautéed vegetables for a complete meal.

Why Zindrew Crunchy Garlic Chili Oil?

Our garlic chili oil, available in both OG and X Batches, is the secret ingredient that takes this dish to the next level. Here’s why Zindrew garlic chili oil is a must in this recipe:

Flavor Complexity: Zindrew garlic chili oil adds a rich, complex layer of flavor. The garlic provides a savory depth, while the chili peppers introduce a mild heat that perfectly complements the sweetness of the honey and the umami of the miso paste.

Versatility: Both OG and X Batches of our garlic chili oil work beautifully in this recipe. The OG Batch offers a balanced heat level and aromatic garlic notes, ideal for those who prefer a subtler spice. On the other hand, the X Batch brings an extra kick, perfect for spice enthusiasts who want their salmon to have a bolder flavor profile.

Consistency and Quality: Zindrew garlic chili oil is crafted with high-quality ingredients, ensuring that every jar delivers consistent taste and heat. This reliability is crucial in cooking, allowing you to recreate this dish perfectly every time.

Tips for the Perfect Honey Miso Glazed Salmon

To ensure your Honey Miso Glazed Salmon turns out perfect every time, here are some additional tips:

Choosing the Salmon: Opt for fresh, high-quality salmon. The fish should have a vibrant color and firm texture. Wild-caught salmon is often recommended for its superior flavor and texture compared to farmed salmon.

Miso Paste Variations: Miso paste comes in different types, primarily white (shiro), yellow (shinshu), and red (aka). White miso is milder and sweeter, yellow miso has a balanced flavor, and red miso is the most robust and salty. Choose the one that suits your taste preference. For this recipe, white or yellow miso works best to balance the sweetness of the honey and the heat from the garlic chili oil.

Honey Selection: Use a good quality honey, as it significantly impacts the glaze's flavor. Raw honey tends to have a richer, more complex flavor compared to processed honey.

Glaze Consistency: Ensure the glaze is well-mixed and smooth. This allows it to coat the salmon evenly, ensuring every bite is packed with flavor.

Baking Time: Keep an eye on the salmon as it bakes. Overcooking can dry it out, while undercooking can leave it raw in the center. The ideal internal temperature for cooked salmon is 145°F (63°C).

Pairing Suggestions

This Honey Miso Glazed Salmon pairs wonderfully with a variety of side dishes. Here are a few suggestions to complete your meal:

Steamed Jasmine Rice: The subtle fragrance and slightly sticky texture of jasmine rice make it an excellent accompaniment to the richly flavored salmon.

Sautéed Vegetables: Quick sautéed greens like bok choy, spinach, or kale add freshness and a slight crunch that contrasts beautifully with the tender salmon.

Pickled Vegetables: Pickles provide a tangy counterpoint to the sweet and savory salmon. Consider serving with pickled cucumbers or daikon radish.
