Miso Sauce Dressing and Marinade
Miso Sauce, Dressing and Marinade takes minutes to make and has so many uses. The amazing flavor of miso paste is mixed with lemon, soy sauce, fresh ginger and sweetened with honey. It’s a salad dressing; it’s a sauce; it’s a marinade. It’s all three! Plus, it makes a delicious creamy dip.
This is one of those go-to sauces when you’re craving some fresh, Asian flavors and the uses for this condiment are almost endless. I use it all the time in my salads with lettuce, endive, cucumber and shredded carrot. You can also mix it with noodles and add veggies for an easy vegetarian dinner.
To use as a marinade, it is perfect for fish or chicken. I pour over my raw salmon and let it marinade all day in the fridge before baking in the oven. Shrimp will also work well and I have a similar recipe called Grilled Miso Shrimp.
Miso is a soybean fermented paste that comes in red, brown, yellow or white. The color depends on its length of fermentation and this determines the flavor. It can add a delicious, salty flavor to so many dishes, so remember to use sparingly.
You can use any of the miso pastes available in grocery stores. Just be mindful that the darker the color, the saltier it is.
Gluten free miso dressing: If you want to make this gluten-free (most miso pastes are, just check the label) use tamari instead of soy sauce.
In-keeping with the Asian food theme. I have a Trio of Asian Dipping Sauces that are no-cook Asian dipping sauces for spring and egg rolls that take minutes to make. Picture below.
