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


1. Boil down sake and mirin until reduced by ⅓.

3. Marinate fillets in cooled marinade for at least 4 hours.

4. 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.

5. Char fish over medium high flame until caramelized.
