  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Fill a large skillet with about 1 inch of water and bring to a boil. Poach fish just until cooked on the outside, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer fillets to a broiler pan.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the miso paste, sake, brown sugar, sesame seeds, sesame oil, water, salad dressing and rice vinegar. Spread this over the tops of the salmon fillets.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until almost cooked through. Switch the oven to broil, and broil until the top is browned and bubbly, about 5 more minutes. Cut fillets into portions to serve.

This was sooo good! I didn't have sake in the house, and I substituted honey for brown sugar. It was a big hit!!!

This sauce has a wonderful flavour! I followed the ingredients exactly, but didn't poach the salmon and left the skin on while I was baking it. I found that the sauce was too runny to be a sprea...

This was delicious! I didn't have sake and it still came out great. Poaching the fish first gave it a nice, delicate texture. Next time I will cut down on the amount of sauce though because I ha...

1 cup miso paste = way too salty as noted by others.

This is a 5 PLUS meal. VERY VERY YUMMY! Very easy to put together and a very quick cook. My husband said he could eat this every day. My step father whom is Japenese LOVED it. I think he licked ...
