I’m going to recommend that you make up a batch of this Sweet Aminos Glaze right now.


Because I suspect that it will be featuring in many a recipe from now on.

A delicious fusion of traditional sweet soy sauce and miso glaze, this gluten and sugar free flavour bomb is everything happy in my life right now.

You can swap the coconut aminos for soy sauce or tamari and use your choice of sweetener, if you prefer.

Super low in carbs but high in protein and healthy fats, this fast and easy dish will make you a star in the kitchen.

The creamy richness of the salmon is set off perfectly by the umami flavour of the glaze and the slight char that you get from grilling it at the end is the big shiny bow on top.

You don’t need an enormous side of salmon to make this dish, it would work just as well on fillets – just keep an eye on the cooking times.

Go on. Make it. Post it. Tag me.



  • 1.500 kg side of salmon

  • 250 ml of coconut aminos/tamari/soy sauce

  • 3/4 cup of Sukrin Gold/brown sugar/coconut sugar

  • 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced

  • 2 inch knob of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced

  • 2 tablespoons of miso paste

  • 1 teaspoon of chili flakes (optional)


  • To make the sweet, sticky glaze place all of the ingredients into a small saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring regularly.
  • Reduce the heat to a simmer and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until thickened. The glaze will thicken further as it cools so don’t reduce it too much.
  • Remove the pot from the heat, cover and let the flavours steep until the glaze has cooled.
  • Remove the garlic and ginger slices and pour the glaze into jars. This recipe makes about 1.5 cups and will store in the fridge for a month or two.
  • To make the salmon, pre-heat your oven to 230 C
  • Place the salmon on a baking tray and brush about 1/4 cup of the sweet aminos glaze over the top.
  • Place tray on the top shelf of the oven and bake for eight minutes.
  • Cook salmon under the grill element for a further 5 minutes until caramelised but not overcooked.
  • Serve with steamed greens and a drizzle of glaze.
