Kicchiri Kitchen: Toaster Oven Miso Salmon


While most of you may have the luxury of a fish grill tucked under your 2-set stove, I, among others, do not. But daijoubu, I have an ever-so convenient 860W toaster oven to save the day. This month I’ll show you how to easily transform salmon into a bento lunch or fish supper.


Cook Time: 12 mins

Prep Time: 30mins + (for marinating)


Serves 2



2 salmon fillets

4 heaped tsps white miso paste

1 tsp soy sauce

1 tsp mirin

1 tsp sugar

Optional: 10ml sake

2. Pour marinade over the salmon fillets and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes – overnight

4. Cook in foil for 8 minutes.

Enjoy one immediately with rice and seasonal greens and save the other for the centerpiece of your bento tomorrow!
