I’m thrilled to be partnering with NAKANO® Rice Vinegar this winter to bring you several vibrant and healthy Asian-inspired dishes featuring their portfolio of high-quality rice vinegars. First up is this super simple tasty and perfectly cooked salmon entree: Slow Roasted Teriyaki Ginger Miso Salmon.
Roasting salmon slowly at a low temperature ensures this often tricky-to-cook fish does not become dry and overcooked. This easy teriyaki-inspired pan sauce is full of umami, salty and sweet flavors that pair perfectly with the refreshing mild flavors of fresh salmon. I used high quality farmed Atlantic salmon, which I prefer the taste of over wild sockeye salmon, but you can use any type of salmon you like in this recipe.
For the teriyaki sauce I used a base of low sodium tamari (soy sauce works fine too), NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar, and mirin. I then jazzed it up with white miso paste for a rich depth of flavor, and fresh garlic and ginger for zing. Teriyaki usually has sugar added as well, but since NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar is lightly sweetened, and mirin is sweet, it isn’t necessary to add extra sugar to this sauce.
The NAKANO brand has been brewing quality rice vinegar since 1804. Each variety of NAKANO Rice Vinegar starts with the finest ingredients and is always made with real rice, and is brewed according to traditional practices, creating a clean flavor that is mild and mellow.
Rice vinegar has always been a staple in my pantry. I use it nearly every day to prepare my son’s favorite lunch: tofu and veggie sushi rolls and/or bowls. Just a splash of NAKANO Rice Vinegar adds a light twist to your favorite dishes.

- 1 lb 454 g fresh salmon fillet
- 2 baby bok choy 287 g (optional)
- 4 tablespoons 60 g low sodium tamari or soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons 28 g NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar
- 2 tablespoons 30 g mirin
- 2 tablespoons 36 g white miso paste
- 1 tablespoon 8 g grated ginger
- 1 teaspoon 5 g grated garlic clove
- 3-4 stalks/1 oz. 28 g scallions, chopped on bias, for garnish
- Preheat oven to 275˚F (135˚C). Line a sheet pan with 2 layers of tinfoil
- Cut salmon fillet into four 4 oz. (113.5 g) pieces and place on the tinfoil lined sheet pan.
- If adding baby bok choy, cut them in half lengthwise and soak for a few minutes in a bowl of water to clean out any sand or soil particles, then rinse under cool water and dry on a dish towel.
- In a medium bowl add tamari, NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar, mirin, miso, finely grated ginger and garlic (use a microplane grater). Stir everything together until combined, about 30 seconds.
- Place bok choy pieces cut side up on the sheet pan and fold ends of the tinfoil up on all sides.
- Spoon all of the sauce over salmon fillets and bok choy. Then place pan in the oven on middle rack and bake until salmon fillets reach an internal temperature of 120˚F(48.8˚C) for medium rare and 145˚F (62.8˚C) for well done. Check the temp first at 15minutes and then every 5 minutes.
- When salmon is done to your liking, remove pan from oven and switch the oven to broil. When broiler is ready place sheet pan back in oven on the uppermost rack and broil for about 30 seconds to give the salmon and bok choy a little color.
- Serve by itself or with rice or noodles or salad and spoon some of the pan sauce over the salmon then garnish with chopped scallions.
