Miso Glazed Salmon (Inspired by Cheesecake Factory)

Miso Glazed Salmon
Inspired by Cheesecake Factory

Need some nice salmon filets (King Salmon preferred)

Miso Glaze:
1/2 Cup Mirin (use the good stuff)
1/4 packed brown sugar
1 Tablespoon of dashi
1 Tablespoon of red miso 
1 Tablespoon water
Stir up to mix and set aside

Sake Butter:
1 shallot finely minced
1/4 teaspoon crushed garlic
1/2 cup  Butter cut into cubes and softened
2-3 Tablespoons Heavy  Whipping Cream  
1/2 Sake (I use Lychee or Fuji Apple Sake)
Saute' and sweat shallot and garlic don't let it color in a little olive oil or butter
add sake and reduce down halfway
slowly add in the butter and stir in to imulsify
add whipping cream and let thicken
Cool down a bit and then blend in a bullet type blender
Set aside

Blanche some Sugar snap peas or Sugar Peas

Salt and pepper your filets, heat a fry pan medium heat let it get hot
sprinkle a little wondra skin side and season (do not wondra the flesh side)
add a little olive oil to pan and skin side down cook the filets ( 2 at a time don't put 3 unless you are using a wide pan)  Press with the fish spatula so the skin will crisp 
keep an eye on the filets should be 3-4 minutes  then flip over and cook other side 
with the flesh side down after the 3 minutes, put the miso glaze mixture into pan 
let it cook a little longer until the glaze thickens you'll know 
plate steamed rice on your plate
plate your salmon skin side down then drizzle the remaning glaze and 
add spread of the sake butter and add peas to your plate. 

Here I saute'd , Fava, Shitake and Baby Carrots 

Bon Appetit!!!
