Nora’s Orange-Miso Sockeye


Nora’s Orange-Miso Sockeye

Serves: 2 | Difficulty:


½ orange, zested and juiced
2 scallions, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-inch piece of fresh ginger, grated
1 tablespoon mirin
2 tablespoons tamari
⅓ cup yellow miso

1 pound sockeye fillet
2 tablespoons coconut oil


In a large bowl, combine orange zest, juice, scallions, garlic, ginger, mirin, tamari, and miso. Marinate sockeye in the miso mixture for at least 30 minutes or overnight.

In a medium, preferably nonstick pan, over medium-high heat, melt the coconut oil. Sear the salmon, skin-side down, until the sockeye is about ⅓ of the way cooked, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Flip, cooking for an additional 2 to 3 minutes until the salmon is flaking. Serve immediately.
