    Salmon salad with citrus-miso dressing

    White miso is a traditional Japanese soybean paste with a light savoury flavour and sweet aftertaste. This light and colourful dish is beautifully enhanced by the miso dressing.

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 2


    2 wild Alaskan keta salmon fillets
    100g frozen edamame soya beans
    115g pack baby spinach
    100g radishes, finely sliced
    80g trimmed sugar snap peas, halved
    ½ x 28g pack coriander, roughly chopped
    40g roasted cashew nuts
    2 salad onions, finely sliced

    1 tbsp Miso Tasty White Miso Paste
    1 tangerine, juice
    2 tbsp groundnut or sunflower oil
    2 tsp maple syrup
    2 tbsp Japanese rice vinegar


    1. Preheat the grill to high; arrange the salmon fillets, skin-side down, on a foil-lined baking tray. Whisk all the dressing ingredients together and spoon a little over each fillet; set the rest of the dressing aside to serve.

    2. Grill the salmon for around 8 minutes – thicker fillets may take longer to cook through. Meanwhile, blanch the edamame in a pan of simmering water for 3 minutes; drain.

    3. Divide the spinach, radishes, sugar snap peas, coriander and edamame between two plates. Lift the salmon fillets from the tray (leaving the skin behind) and lay on top. Drizzle over the dressing (you won’t need it all – any left over can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days). Roughly chop the cashews, then scatter over the salad along with the onions and serve immediately. 

    Cook’s tip

    For a more substantial meal, try serving with steamed rice on the side.
