Sheet Pan Maple Miso Salmon Recipe

Sheet pan dinners are one of my favorite ways to conquer the weeknight dinner dilemma. To take this from basic baked salmon, I did two things. One, I made this simple, slightly sweet but super savory maple miso glaze. And two, I broiled it!

Making maple miso glaze

So let’s get right to it. I used white miso paste, fresh ginger, rice vinegar, and maple syrup to make the maple miso glaze. You can also use red miso if that’s what you have in the fridge. Because the miso is high in sodium, you won’t need any added salt in the recipe.

How to Make Maple Miso Glaze

Whisk it all together and your prep is almost done. If your miso has been refrigerated, let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes for easier whisking.

Spread the broccoli florets onto a sheet pan and toss with sesame oil, salt, and pepper. Spoon the glaze over the salmon. And pop that dinner into a preheated broiler.

And… 7-8 minutes later, dinner is done!

How to broil salmon

For this one, I suggest broiling the salmon. It will help the fish to develop a lovely crust and flavor. This method also helps the salmon to cook quickly.

The key is making the best broiled salmon is to cut the salmon into even pieces. This will help the salmon to cook evenly – so that it’s all moist and delicious and not overcooked. I buy the “barbeque cuts” at Trader Joe’s or ask the person at the seafood counter to slice the fillet for me. You can of course slice your own.

Broiling works well with sauces that have somethings sweet like maple syrup or brown sugar. But that can also lead to a sticky, stuck-on mess. So consider lining the pan.

TIP: You might want to line the pan with foil if your pan is prone to sticking. Do not use parchment in the broiler.

Tips for sheet pan dinner clean up

Sheet pan dinners are super convenient but I always have this nagging voice telling me how much of a pain the pan will be to clean. Well. Not (always) true.

Get a good non-stick pan or use parchment paper when you won’t be broiling the meal. Though the burned on sauce looks like a mess, I gave my pan a quick soak and it all came right off.

    LOVE roasted broccoli and salmon together! That maple miso sauce sounds awesome, too. I'm always crazy about miso when I eat out, but haven't cooked with it yet! Reply

      I love cooking with miso. The paste keeps for a while and it's great to use for stuff like this or really good vegetable broth! Reply

    I love maple and miso together - I use a marinade like this on veggies and chicken and it's so good. Plus broccoli and salmon are a perfect duo! Oh, and I always use foil or parchment on sheet pans for easier clean up ;-) Reply

      I definitely like to use parchment for easy clean up. I was trying to get the perfect shot for this one though and sacrificed a scrub for it :) Reply
