  • 1 tablespoon white miso paste
  • 4 (about 180g) skinless salmon fillets
  • Lemon wedges, to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the breadcrumbs in a large bowl. Use your hands to finely crumble the nori over the breadcrumbs. Add the sesame seeds and stir to combine.
  2. Heat the butter and miso paste in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk until smooth. Add the breadcrumb mixture and use a spatula to stir until well combined.
  3. Place the salmon on the prepared tray. Press the breadcrumb mixture evenly over the salmon. Place the tray on the bottom rack of the oven. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the flesh flakes when tested with a fork.
  4. Divide the salmon among serving plates. Serve with lemon wedges.
