  • 1/4 cup sake
  • 1/4 cup white miso gluten free
  • 1 T brown sugar
  • 1 T soy sauce gluten free
  • 4 6-oz salmon fillets with skin
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 9.5 oz package Hakubaku Soba noodles
  • 2 whole zucchinis spiralized
  • 2 T toasted sesame oil
  • soy sauce for serving
  • kimchi for serving


  • Heat the sake in a small saucepan over low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and put the sake, miso, 1/4 cup water, sugar, and soy sauce in a large bowl. Break up with a whisk or fork to form a smooth liquid sauce. Place salmon fillets into the sauce, cover, and refrigerate for 12 to 48 hours.

  • Preheat the oven to broil or preheat the grill to medium-high. Remove the salmon from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Lightly brush the fish with oil and broil or grill the fish until just done. The flesh will become opaque and flake when it is cooked.*
  • Serve over soba noodles* with kimchi. Season with soy sauce or use the marinade as a sauce by simmering in a pot.


Grilling Fish: Always start with a hot grill and use oil to help fish separate from grates. An extra minute on the grates with an oiled, offset spatula help tremendously. Sometimes the fish will stick. Take heart, and try to preserve the crispy skin.
Soba gets cooked in salted boiling water. Check the center of the noodle. Any visible white starch means the noodle is under-cooked. Strain and rinse with cold water when just cooked through. Toss immediately with sesame oil to prevent the noodles from sticking.
Zucchini noodles cook in under 1 minute. Add them to the soba noodles at the very end to prevent them from over cooking.
