  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) maple syrup
  • 30 ml (2 tablespoons) miso paste (pale)
  • 15 ml (1 tablespoon) low sodium soy sauce
  • 5 ml (1/2 tablespoon) rice vinegar
  • 5 ml (1 teaspoon) sesame oil
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • Juice from a lime
  • 15 ml (1 tablespoon) fresh ginger, grated
  • 4 salmon fillets (500 g) (wild if possible), skinless
  • 15 ml (1 tablespoon) sesame seeds
  • 15 ml (1 tablespoon) cilantro, chopped
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped

Side dish for 4

  • 190 ml (3/4 cup) quinoa
  • 375 ml (1 ½ cup) low sodium chicken broth
  • 40 asparagus
  • 5 ml (1 teaspoon) olive oil


  1. In a small bowl, prepare the marinade. Mix the maple syrup, miso paste, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, lime juice, and ginger.
  2. Put the marinade and salmon in an airtight container or large Ziploc bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the quinoa side dish (or any other grain). Cook the quinoa in chicken broth according to the instructions on the packaging. Set aside somewhere warm.
  4. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F) or set your barbecue to high intensity.
  5. Set aside the marinade and salmon in two different bowls.
  6. If they are baked in the oven, put the salmon fillets on a baking sheet, and cook for about 12-15 minutes, depending on the thickness and desired cooking. Add salt and pepper.
  7. If they are grilled on the barbecue, lower the heat to medium and grill for 2 to 3 minutes until grill marks appear. Turn over gently, and cook for another 6 to 8 minutes, depending on the thickness and desired cooking. Add salt and pepper.
  8. Add the asparagus mixed with olive oil when there are only 10 minutes left to cooking. Add salt and pepper.
  9. Baste the salmon with the left-over marinade several times throughout the cooking process.
  10. When the salmon is ready, garnish with sesame seeds, cilantro, and green onions. Serve with quinoa and asparagus.


Bon appétit!
