There’s an affectionate credit line for a miso-glazed salmon recipe in “Good Housekeeping Light and Healthy Cookbook: 375 Delectable Recipes for Everyday Meals” (Hearst, 2003, $24.95).

“Brian Hagiwara, one of Good Housekeeping’s favorite photographers, shared this special recipe,” a note explains, praising the taste of the rich salmon with its sweet and savory glaze using miso, the flavorful Japanese bean paste. Serve with a side of steamed aromatic rice.

The recipe would fit a low-fat eating plan nicely, since it packs only about 7 grams of fat per serving. In addition, it takes only about 20 minutes to prepare.

Miso-Glazed Salmon

From “Good Housekeeping Light and Healthy Cookbook: 375 Delectable Recipes for Everyday Meals” (Hearst, 2003, $24.95)

1/4 cup white miso

5 teaspoons sugar

4 teaspoons seasoned rice vinegar

3 teaspoons water

2 teaspoons minced, peeled fresh ginger

4 salmon steaks, 1 inch thick (6 ounces each)

1 green onion, thinly sliced diagonally

Preheat broiler. Lightly spray rack in broiling pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In small bowl, mix miso, sugar, vinegar, water and ginger; set aside.

Place salmon steaks on rack in broiling pan. Place pan in broiler at closest position to heat source; broil salmon 5 minutes. Remove pan from broiler and spread half of miso mixture on salmon; broil 1 minute longer.

Remove pan from broiler; turn salmon over and top with remaining miso mixture. Broil salmon until miso mixture is bubbly and salmon is opaque throughout, 3 to 4 minutes longer. Sprinkle with green onion before serving.

Yield: 4 main-dish servings.
