Plank roasted salmon fillet with miso and soy

By January 17, 2020 , , ,

I received a gift of the new Tomasu Soy set from Big Green Egg Europe just before Christmas. The soy sauce itself is very interesting in that it is brewed here in the Netherlands, in comparison with traditional Japanese soy brands it has a lighter salt flavour and less anise notes. I decided to use it in this recipe as I wanted a good balance of flavours, between the saltiness of the miso and also the sweetness of the mirin. Roasting it on the cedar plank brought a nice smoky edge which rounded it off nicely.

20ml Tomasu soy
40ml mirin
30g red miso paste
2 150g salmon fillets 
1 cedar plank soaked in water for at least 2 hours

Mix together the soy, mirin and miso until the miso has dissolved
Pour about 3/4 of the mix over the salmon and ensure it is coated on all sides, allow to marinade for 3-4 hours
Set your barbecue up for direct cooking at 160c
Briefly place the plank logo side down on the griddle for 2 minutes, turn over and place the salmon fillets skin side down on the plank and place on the griddle
Cook for 15 - 20 minutes, basting every 5 minutes until the salmon reaches 63c core temp
