Servings 2


  • 1 salmon fillet, skin removed, cut in 2-3 inch cubes
  • 2 dried New Mexico chilies You can use any smokey dried chilies you like
  • 1 jalapeño, seeds removed
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbs light sweet miso paste I used the Muso from Japan brand
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat leaf or Italian parsley
  • 1/3 tsp salt I use fine sea salt


  • Place dried chilies in a bowl and cover with very hot or boiling water. Let them soak for 15-20 minutes to re-hydrate. Pull the stem off the peppers and shake out the dried seeds inside the peppers.
  • Add the re-hydrated chilies, jalapeño, garlic, miso paste, olive oil, water, salt and parsley into a blender. Blend it 1 - 2 minutes until it forms a thick paste-like sauce.
  • Place cubed salmon chunks in a bowl and toss with enough of the blender sauce to coat each cube (set any extra marinade aside). Marinate at least 15 minutes (or up to overnight).   
  • Broil on high for 6-7 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds (optional) and serve with brown rice and your favorite veggies. Tip: If you like things saucy, add 2 tbsps of water and a pinch of salt to the leftover marinade. Microwave for 1 minute and drizzle over your salmon bowl.


  • When you're at the grocery store or fish market, ask them to remove the skin for you to save time. You can also remove it at home like I did but you'll need a sharp knife and a steady hand.
