What are the health benefits of miso?

Bursting with beneficial bacteria, miso is a traditional Japanese seasoning made by fermenting beans with koji, a fungal culture (Aspergillus oryzae). Rich in minerals such as iron, calcium and phosphorus, as well as stress-busting B vitamins, miso adds a delicious umami flavour to a dish. We have used the sweeter, milder white miso to complement the salmon in our recipe. Try more recipes for a healthy gut.


  • 100g brown basmati rice
  • 2 skinless salmon fillets
  • 2 pak choi, quartered lengthways
  • a handful sugar snap peas
  • a handful baby corn
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced


  • 1 tbsp white miso
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • a thumb-sized piece ginger, finely grated
  • 1 clove garlic, finely grated


  • STEP 1

    Cook the rice in lightly salted boiling water following pack instructions, then drain well.

  • STEP 2

    For the sauce, whisk together all of the ingredients with 100ml of water.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the grill to high and heat a non-stick oven-proof frying pan over a medium-high heat, lightly oil and season the salmon fillets then cook on one side for 2 minutes until crisp. Turn, remove from the heat and pour over the miso sauce. Put under the grill for 2-3 minutes or until the salmon is crisp and the sauce reduced and bubbling.

  • STEP 4

    Meanwhile, cook the pak choi, sugar snaps and baby corn in a large pan of boiling water until just tender, then drain well.

  • STEP 5

    Divide the rice and veg between two plates then add the salmon, spooning over any sauce. Sprinkle with spring onions to serve.
