Miso Glazed Salmon & Sesame Soy Snap Peas

Naptime Nosh: Miso Glazed Salmon & Sesame Soy Snap Peas

Serving Size: 1

Mama Shortcuts:

If salmon filet is frozen, remove from freezer, place in a ziploc bag, and put in a shallow bowl with lukewarm water to thaw while making the kiddos' lunch.

Turn on broiler to begin heating while you do the final diaper change and cuddle before naptime.

If you have two salmon filets, use all of the miso sauce and broil both. Save one filet to flake over a green salad for lunch tomorrow.

Ingredients

  • Miso Salmon
  • 1 tbsp white miso
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 salmon filet
  • Sesame Soy Snap Peas
  • 1 c sugar snap peas, trimmed and rinsed
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp maple syrup
  • Black sesame seeds (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat broiler to high.
  2. Mix miso through vinegar in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Place salmon filet on a parchment lined baking sheet. Spread half the miso mixture on the filet. Broil for 4-6 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish. Fish should flake easily with a fork when its done.
  4. While the salmon is broiling, put snap peas in a small bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave 2-3 minutes until crisp tender.
  5. Drizzle on soy sauce, sesame oil, and maple syrup and toss to coat.
  6. Place peas in a shallow bowl and top with the salmon filet. Drizzle with leftover miso sauce. Sprinkle on sesame seeds (optional).
