Baked miso salmon. Grilled the salmon instead of bake/broil. Instead of the salad dressing I used a generous splash of light soy, fresh ground ginger, garlic, some mirin instead of sake, a bit of rice wine vineager and a squeeze of lime. I used maybe a quarter cup of miso since it seemed like it would be too salty with more.
