  • 3 tablespoons brown rice or red miso
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar (or sugar substitute) or honey
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh orange zest
  • pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 (4-ounce) salmon filets
  1. Combine the miso, soy sauce, orange juice, sugar, orange zest, and red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Add the salmon and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat an oven broiler with the rack set 4 inches from the heat source. Cover a broiler pan with foil. Coat the foil with cooking spray. Or set an outdoor grill to high heat. Coat the rack with cooking spray.
  3. Remove the salmon from the marinade, letting any excess drip back into the bowl. Discard the excess marinade. Add the salmon to the pan skin side down.
  4. Broil or grill the salmon for about 8–10 minutes until desired doneness. Let the salmon rest a few minutes before serving to allow juices to settle.
