A note about serious food allergies

Braising has to be one of our all-time favorite cooking methods. But it's usually the province of tougher cuts of meat cooked in a flavorful liquid for a long period. Salmon, however, is the opposite of tough, and so is rarely considered for braising. We decided to flip the script and bring you this delicious salmon quickly braised in a flavorful broth spiked with miso and garlic. Tender, quick-cooking, and served with its own flavorful cooking liquid, this is sure to become a household favorite.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F
  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Mince chives. Mince garlic. Hold romaine head at root end and chop coarsely. Halve grape tomatoes. Rinse salmon, pat dry, and season both sides with 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

  2. 2

    Sear the Salmon

    Heat a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and salmon to hot pan and cook 2 minutes on one side, or until browned. Remove salmon to a plate, seared side up (salmon will finish cooking later). Reserve pan (no need to wipe clean).

  3. 3

    Finish Cooking the Salmon

    Return pan used to sear salmon to medium-high heat. Add half the garlic, half the chives, half the miso, and 1/3 cup water to hot pan and whisk to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and return salmon to pan, seared-side up. Cook 4-9 minutes, or until firm and salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees. Cooking times may vary due to thickness of fillets.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Transfer salmon to plate and return pan to high heat. Continue cooking braising liquid in pan 1-3 minutes, or until thick enough to coat back of a spoon. Remove from burner and whisk in butter.

  5. 5

    Make the Salad

    While sauce reduces, combine remaining garlic, remaining miso, half the honey, vinegar, mayonnaise, 1/4 tsp. salt and 1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil in a medium mixing bowl. Add romaine and toss to combine. Taste, and if you prefer more sweetness add remaining honey.

  6. 6

    Plate the Dish

    Place salmon on a plate and pool butter sauce in front. Arrange salad next to salmon and top with grape tomatoes. Garnish salmon with remaining chives.
