INGREDIENTS
  • 1½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 x 200g Akaroa salmon fillets, skin on 
  • 2 x bulbs baby fennel, thinly sliced 
  • ½ cup mint leaves 
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice

miso and orange glaze
  • 2 tablespoons white miso paste (can be purchased from organic stores)

METHOD
  1. For the glaze: place the miso, maple syrup and orange juice in a small bowl and mix together.

  2. Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat and cook the salmon, skin-side up, for 3–4 minutes. Turn and cook for a further 2–3 minutes or until golden and just pink in the centre. Spoon the glaze over the Akaroa salmon, turn to coat and remove from the heat.
