    Serves: 4


    • Broth
    • 1 litre Vegetable stock
    • 2 tbsp Mirin or sweet sherry
    • 1 tbsp Soy sauce
    • 6 Shiitake mushrooms, halved
    • 2 tbsp Miso paste (or 2 x 8g sachets miso soup powder)
    • 100g Silken tofu, cut into 2cm cubes
    • 1 tbsp Teriyaki sauce
    • 1 tbsp Soy sauce
    • 1 tsp Vegetable oil
    • 4 Salmon fillets, skin on
    • 100g Baby spinach leaves
    • 1 tbsp Sesame seeds, toasted

    2. For the broth, bring the stock to the boil, then add the mirin, soy sauce and mushrooms; simmer for 3 minutes. In a small bowl, mix a ladleful of the broth with the miso paste or powder, then pour back in, whisking well. Simmer the tofu cubes in the broth for 1 minute.
    3. Grill the salmon for 4–5 minutes on each side until the skin is crisp but the flesh is still just pink inside. Ladle the broth into bowls; scatter over the spinach. Top with the fish and scatter over the sesame seeds.
