  1. Heat the broiler.
  2. Place the fish in a shallow baking tray lined with foil. Drizzle with canola oil and sprinkle lightly with salt on both sides.
  3. Broil 4 inches away from the heat for 5 minutes. Take the fish out of the oven and flip. Spread the Tangerine Miso Sauce evenly on the fillets. Return to broil and cook for another 5-7 minutes or until the fish is cooked through.
  4. Serve immediately with chopped scallions.

Chef Tips

If making this for one,  ½-¾ teaspoon of oil to rub over the fish is enough.

If on chemo, the smell of broiling oily fish like salmon may be too strong to cook this indoors.
