2 Tbsp sweet white miso paste (see Ingredient note)
2 Tbsp mirin (Japanese rice wine) (see Ingredient note)
1 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari (see Ingredient note)
1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger
a few drops hot pepper sauce
1 ¼ lb center-cut salmon filet, cut into 4 portions
2 Tbsp thinly sliced scallions
2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
1. Position oven rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler. Line a small baking pan with foil. Coat foil with cooking spray.
2. Toast sesame seeds in a small dry skillet over low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Set aside.
3. Whisk miso, mirin, soy sauce (or tamari), ginger and hot pepper sauce in a small bowl until smooth.
4. Place salmon filets, skin-side down, in the prepared pan. Brush generously with the miso mixture. Broil salmon, 3 to 4 inches from the heat source, until opaque in the center, 6 to 8 minutes.
5. Transfer the salmon to warmed plates and garnish with the reserved sesame seeds, scallions and cilantro (or parsley).
