Sous Vide Salmon w/miso-crack-ginger-glaze and Japanese Salad

Another winner. SV Atlantic Salmon with a miso/ginger/shoyu glaze. Served with Field greens with miso (“Japanese Steakhouse” style) dressing and forbidden rice with Sherry Shoyu jus. 

Salmon was dry brined in 4:1 salt to sugar for 15 minutes, rinsed, then cooked SV at 118 for 40 min with a little EVOO in the bag. Glazed after the bath then placed under a ripping hot broiler for 1 minute. I torched mine real quick too to caramlize the glaze a little more. Fish was perfectly cooked-so delish. SV is such a great tool to cook delicate proteins like this. 

Sherry Shoyu Jus
2 tbsp sherry, 2 tbsp shoyu, 1 tsp sesame oil, 1/4 cup broth, 2 tsp ginger

Miso glaze (enough for 1 lb of fish)
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp miso
1 tbsp water
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp chili garlic paste

    @The Cen-Tex Smoker looks great, going to try tonight but need to buy miso.  What color is your fav for a glaze like this?  As I typed I remembered a page on Miso in recent bon appetit magazine and flipped open to find exact page - here it is.  I assume light miso best for glaze like this?

    Looks like we use the 2nd from the top color in your chart for this one.

    But don’t be afraid to try one of the others. We just always have this one in stock so that’s what we use.

    Great looking meal and thanks for sharing the recipe.  I have one small batch of Copper River left in the freezer, and this looks like it is it!

    Thanks - glaze made (tasty) and dry brine done & copper river salmon vac sealed - waiting on my 2 Chill-Drens to sleep so I can put in SV bath.  Too many beers so good no fire (unless I torch at end) for me. Also, Miso Horny.

    That looks amazing. I've really got to get a better understanding of sous vide temps and times. I did salmon last night, but 113 for two hours. Should have stuck it under the broiler, but instead tried to sear it on the Weber. Not my finest work. No pics.

    Talent rich right there.  Great cook and pics.  Nailed it-and too much green for me B)

    Nice CT.  I'll be trying this soon.  

    When I've nailed salmon on the BGE, it's been great.  But it can be tough to get just right.

    I find 135-140*F finish temp on the BGE brings the salmon home every time.  FYI.

    Very Good!!  My pics suck tho - selfie with torch after day beers - yikes.  first time doing salmon SV and texture was very enjoyable.  I have had amazing BGE salmon but on a bad run of overcooking so this was refreshing.  LOVED the glaze (even though I added too much ginger).  This will be repeat for sure, thanks for sharing.

    also made puff pastry with random combos of chicken leeks corn cheese broccoli for kids - I could eat 20 of these.
