Miso paste question

mschow Sep 23, 2009 08:23 AM

I;m planning on visiting an local Asian mart this week and wanted to buy some miso paste for a miso/brown sugar glazed salmon recipe that I want to try. My recollection is that last time I bought miso paste there were numerous types. Is there one that is the most appropriate for this type of recipe? Is it called anything special on the label, and is this found in the refrigerated section? Thanks for any advice.

    It will depend on the flavor you want from the miso.
    Most glazes and marinades are prepared from red or white miso.
    Here is a link to some general miso information:

      Salmon goes best with a white miso paste.
