Peanut butter and jelly. Macaroni and cheese. Bert and Ernie. Some things just belong together. To that list you can add maple and miso paste. The sweetness of maple syrup pairs so naturally with savory miso paste--a traditional Japanese seasoning made by fermenting soy beans--that you'll wonder where this dynamic duo has been all your life. We serve it as a glaze for salmon and pair it with roasted Brussels sprouts and apples for a nutrient-packed meal that's both healthy and indulgent.
