Grilled Miso Salmon

  • Author: Mollie
  • Total Time: 4 hours, 17 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


This grilled miso salmon is the perfect combination of Asian-inspired flavors and summer grilling. The miso marinade is so easy to make and super flavorful, and it pairs perfectly with salmon and a side of rice or vegetables. This is truly the best summer weeknight meal. 



4 skin-on salmon fillets

1/4 cup white miso

1 teaspoon sriracha

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

2 tablespoons maple syrup

Sesame seeds and green onions for garnish (optional)


  1. Place the salmon filets in a ziplock baggie with miso, sriracha, soy sauce, maple syrup, and rice vinegar. Shake to combine everything, then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat your grill to about 500°F. Then add the salmon, skin-side down, and cook for 6-8 minutes, or until the skin is crispy and the salmon is cooked about three-quarters of the way up the side.
  3. Flip the salmon and cook for another 2-4 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches about 130°F. Then remove it from the grill and allow it to rest for a few minutes before cutting into it. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds if desired. 


Marinate the salmon for the full 4 hours if you have time. The flavors get more intense the longer it sits in the marinade.
