Preparing a whole side of fish might seem intimidating, but this sweet and salty glazed salmon is surprisingly easy to make. It’s perfect for a crowd, and the leftovers can be flaked over salad—that is, if there are any leftovers.
What to buy: Miso is a Japanese culinary staple made by fermenting rice, barley, or, most commonly, soy. The two main types are white (or shiro) miso, which has a sweet, mild flavor, and red (or aka) miso, which is aged and has a salty, umami flavor. You can find miso paste refrigerated at most grocery stores.
Game plan: The glaze for this recipe can be made up to 1 day ahead. Store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
