Maple Broiled Salmon

I saw this recipe on TV at my mother-in-law’s and found an indirect link, Jacques Pépin’s Broiled Salmon with Miso Glaze – for Two to a cut-down version online. I wasn’t overwhelmed by the outcome but Peter liked it well enough. I think it could stand to be spicier; the sriracha was drowned in the sweetness of the maple syrup.

As mentioned on TV, I substituted white miso for red miso because I had it. As mentioned on the internet, the chef’s suggested four minutes of broiling was much too little; even 8 minutes of broiling left them a bit underdone—which wasn’t bad, but you should trust your salmon if you’re going to eat it that way.

Serves 2.



  1. Mix non-salmon ingredients until smooth.
  2. Spread onto salmon steaks.
  3. Place on foil-lined broiler tray.
  4. Broil 8 minutes or to taste.


You can bake this around 15 minutes at 375° instead.
