Delicious Past…

The Cheesecake Factory’s Miso Salmon


One of my favorite dishes at The Cheesecake Factory is the Miso Salmon. It is light, the fish is perfectly cooked, and you think you are eating something healthy from The Cheesecake Factory…think again! Nothing from that restaurant is very healthy but everything is delicious and really, isn’t that all that matters?

Every time we are visiting home The Cheesecake Factory is a must on our restaurant list. I always try to order something different on their huge menu or get my usual (cobb salad with blue cheese) and something else to take home. Well, this one time I tried the Miso Salmon. Yum! The salmon just falls apart at the touch of your fork and melts in your mouth. The miso glaze is sweet and yet perfectly balanced with umami that you just want that glaze and a spoon. The salmon sits on top a bed of jasmine rice and garnished with a few snow peas. A great dinner with a few more veggies or a light lunch that is easy to pack up for work and heat at the office. This easy recipe really duplicates the meal spot on, you will absolutely love it!

I used a ginger and garlic paste but if you use minced or chopped, just run the glaze through a food processor or blender once finished. Also, look for miso, soybean paste, in your grocer Asian aisle or at an Asian grocery store. I used 4 salmon fillets, about 6 ounces each and 1 inch thick.
