….The MiSo seasoned grilled fish made with plump and tender cod is one of the family’s favorite dishes. However, today instead of cod, I made MiSo seasoned grilled salmon. I marinated the salmon in the seasoning sauce for about a day and then baked it in the oven. The salmon itself is rich in good fats, so there was no need to add extra olive oil. Especially since salmon isn’t our family’s preferred fish, it was a challenge with a new recipe. I wondered how the unique aroma of salmon would change. I was also concerned whether the tender salmon flesh would become firm. A bit cautious, I compared the MiSo sauce-coated salmon fillet and belly, trying to see how they differed. For grilled fish, the white miso lent a more subtle taste, so I chose that, grated some ginger, and enhanced the flavor with seasoned my Mat-Gan-Jang. After being baked, the slightly cooled tender belly and slightly hardened salmon fillet were complemented smoothly by the avocado salad placed alongside. My husband enjoyed it, mentioning that it paired well with the pickled fennels. Occasionally, the challenge of new flavors left its mark on the dining table with heartfelt effort.
