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.



  • brown basmati rice 100g
  • skinless salmon fillets 2

  • 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.
