Miso Glaze

  • Yield: Makes about 1-1/4 cups

  • 1/2 cups white miso (see Notes)
  • 1/2 cups mayonnaise (preferably Hellmann’s)
  • 5-6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoons white pepper (optional)

Step 1: Whisk the miso, mayonnaise, sugar, lemon zest, and white pepper (if desired) in a bowl CEDAR-PLANKED SALMON WITH MISO GLAZE, CONTINUED until smooth. (If the miso is particularly stiff, as some brands are, thin it a bit with 1 to 2 tablespoons of warm water, sake, or mirin.)

Step 2: Notes: Individual cedar planks are often sold where grilling supplies are sold, or they are available from . If using planks from a lumberyard, make sure they are untreated. White miso is available in Asian markets and in the ethnic section of some supermarkets, or you can purchase it on-line from, phone 888.482.2742.
