Furikake Miso Butter Salmon
It’s no secret that salmon has a ton of health benefits. It’s packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which help keep our brain, nerves, and eyes healthy!
Miso paste adds a TON of umami flavor, but did you know it’s actually good for you too? Yep, miso is made of fermented soybeans that create various vitamins and nutrients good for our gut.
Butter, on the other hand, isn’t known for its health benefits. But can we all agree that butter makes EVERYTHING better? Haha

Furikake Miso Butter Salmon
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
- 2 tablespoons low-sodium white miso paste
- 4 garlic cloves minced
- 5 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons mirin
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 2 7- oz salmon fillets
- 2 teaspoons furikake
- In a bowl, combine the miso butter ingredients. Set aside.
- Heat a large pan on medium heat, then add about a tablespoon of oil. Add the salmon skin side down. Gently press down on the fish so the skin doesn’t bubble while cooking. We want to skin to remain flat so it becomes evenly crisp. Cook for about 4 - 5 minutes, or until most of the skin's fat has rendered out and has become crisp. Flip the salmon over cook for another 2 - 3 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.
- Turn the heat to low and pour in the miso butter. Move the salmon in the miso butter and baste it until it’s well coated.
- Transfer the salmon to a plate, top with furikake, and serve with hot steamy rice or salad. Enjoy!
- Miso Paste: I recommend using low-sodium miso paste since this recipe also uses soy sauce, which is also salty. You can find miso paste at local Asian or Japanese markets in the refrigerated section.
- Furikake: Furikake typically includes seaweed and sesame seeds, however, there are many yummy variations you can try! They're easily found at local Asian or Japanese markets but it's becoming so popular, it's sometimes even in Asian section of typical grocery stores.
