From the kitchen of: David Lattin, Winemaker


  • Salmon fillets
  • 3 tbsp sake
  • 3 tbsp mirin
  • ½ cup white miso
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • Japanese rice, chilled buckwheat noodles, or zoodles


Boil down sake and mirin until reduced by ⅓.

Add miso and sugar, then cook for 2-3 more minutes while stirring. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Marinate fillets in cooled marinade for at least 4 hours.

Meanwhile, make the grill clean and hot, and grease the grill to prevent the marinade from sticking. Pour a glass of Hallberg Blanc to sip while you work.

Char fish over medium high flame until caramelized.

Serve with rice or noodles and enjoy!
