    Soy Miso Glazed Salmon with Diakon Salsa

    A healthy addition to this dish is the fermented bean paste, otherwise known as miso. It’s available in different strengths and colours. We suggest the light miso, as it’s less harsh and doesn’t overpower the salmon.

    Tip: Shiro miso is a paste made from white rice and fermented soybean, found in the dairy case.

    Substitute or partially substitute regular red radishes for daikon radishes for an added splash of colour.
