160 calories per serving 


1 green onions/scallions, finely chopped   15 g
1 clove garlic, minced    
1/2 tbsp gingerroot, grated   7 g
1 1/2 tbsp wheat-free soy sauce   23 mL
1 tbsp miso (fermented soybean paste)   16 g
1 tbsp olive oil   15 mL
1/2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed   1/4 lemon
  ground pepper to taste    
300 g salmon fillet    



  1. Finely chop the scallion, mince the garlic, then put them in a shallow dish. Add the grated ginger, soy sauce, miso, oil, lemon juice, and pepper. Whisk using a fork to combine the ingredients. It is not necessary to add any salt since the soy and Hoisin sauces are already rather salty.
  2. Put the salmon in the dish and turn it to coat with the marinade. Cover and let stand either 30 min at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator.


  1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC/375ºF.
  2. Remove the salmon from the marinade, letting the excess marinade drip off, then transfer it to a baking sheet, skin side down. Bake in the middle of the oven about 20 min. Alternatively, the salmon may be cooked on an outdoor grill.
  3. Check with a fork to see if the fish is cooked through. Separate and lift the salmon from the skin with a metal spatula and serve (discard skin).
