Sheet Pan Miso Salmon & Vegetables paired with Erath Willakia Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. This meal is elegant enough for the holidays, but easy enough for weeknight cooking. Best of all, it’s baked on ONE sheet pan with flaky salmon, crispy veggies, edamame and the most flavorful miso glaze.
I’ve been seeing more and more “one-pot”, “one-pan”, “one-skillet”, “sheet pan” dinner recipes popping up on the web lately. In fact, I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to them. And while I’m no stranger to one-skillet recipes (have you tried this one or this one?), I’m still building up my repertoire of one-pan meals.
Now – I’m hooked on these one pan meals. Why?
- I love that you can cook your entire meal on one sheet pan – protein and veggies all in one fell swoop.
- Sheet pan dinners are super versatile – Poultry, meat, seafood – they’ll all work here and you can use virtually any vegetable too.
- If you line your sheet pan with parchment paper or tin foil before baking the cleanup is incredibly simple.
For tonight’s dinner, I went with a bit of an Asian vibe and made baked Miso Salmon. I brought home a nice filet of salmon and coated it in a white miso glaze sweetened with a bit of mirin and brown sugar. The ingredients are fairly straightforward. You can find the mirin in the asian foods aisle. The miso should be in the refrigerated section, typically near the fresh produce.
Miso Glazed Salmon ingredients:
- White Miso
- Soy Sauce
- Brown Sugar
- Olive Oil
- Sesame Seeds
While the fish bakes, the glaze thickens and covers the salmon in all those amazing flavors. But, be sure to save some of that glaze for later – It’ll make the perfect dipping sauce for your cooked veggies.
In this case, I chose broccoli, carrots and edamame – some of my favorite vegetables that I like to use in Asian stir fries. I thought they would be a nice compliment to the miso glaze and they worked really well here. However, feel free to swap out any of these suggested vegetables for your favorites. Cauliflower, asparagus, red bell peppers and zucchini would also work wonderfully.
Regardless of which veggie combo you choose, we can’t forget the wine! Especially for the holidays.
Wine Pairings for Miso Salmon:
- Pinot Gris has just a hint of sweetness to it and a good body that will stand up to the miso glaze on this salmon.
- A light Pinot Noir or young Beaujolais would also work well here – With a bit of acidity and a hint of earthiness, they make a great match for this dish.
I chose a couple beautiful bottles from Erath. Their winery is located close to our home, in Dundee, Oregon, but it is available at retailers nationwide and online. They produce the #1 selling premium Pinot in Oregon and I think it is one of the most food-friendly wines out there, especially for the holidays, when you may be serving a variety of dishes.
I served this salmon with their Willakia Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris and I couldn’t recommend two better pairings. Right now you can head to Erath.com for 10% off their wines, just enter the promo code ROAST at checkout!

- 1 salmon filet ((about 1 ½ pounds), skin on)

- 2 Tablespoons peeled and grated fresh ginger ((from about a 2-inch piece), divided)

- 2 Tablespoons olive oil (, plus extra for coating pan)
- Salt and pepper (, to taste)

- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with olive oil. For easy cleanup, line the pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper first, set aside.
- Whisk together the mirin, miso, soy sauce, brown sugar and half of the ginger. Place the salmon filet on your baking sheet and brush half of the miso mixture on top of it. Reserve the remaining miso glaze to a small bowl for later.
- Toss the vegetables with the remaining ginger, 2 Tbsp. olive oil and salt and pepper, to taste. Scatter the vegetables around the salmon.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds. Serve immediately with remaining miso mixture on the side.
