For the Salmon:

  • ¼ cup gluten free white miso paste
  • ¼ cup mirin
  • 2 tablespoons Rice Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Gluten Free Soy Sauce or Tamari
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons Sesame Oil
  • 2 6 ounce salmon filets

For the Cauliflower Rice:

  • 1 12-ounce bag cauliflower rice, fresh or frozen
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 green onions white and green parts chopped and separated
  • 1 cup shredded carrots (2-3 whole)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 cup peas fresh or frozen (thawed)
  • 2 tablespoon Gluten Free Soy Sauce or Tamari
  • 1 teaspoon Sesame Oil

For Serving:

  • remaining green onions sliced
  • sesame seeds


  • Whisk together the miso paste, mirin, vinegar, sweet soy sauce, ginger, and sesame oil for the salmon. Place the salmon filets in a baking dish, pour the marinade over the salmon, turn the filets to fully coat, cover the dish and marinate for 30 minutes or up to 8 hours.
  • Position a rack 6 inches from the broiler. Preheat broiler to high.
  • While the salmon marinates, cook the cauliflower rice according to the package directions, then transfer to a large bowl.
  • Then, line a broiling pan with foil and spray with cooking spray or brush with oil. Place the salmon filets on the prepared pan, brushing the tops with a layer of marinade. Discard the marinade.
  • Broil for 6-10 minutes depending on the thickness of the filets. You can test the doneness of the filets by gently pressing down on the top of the filet with your finger or a fork. If the flesh flakes, it is done.
  • While the salmon cooks, finish the fried rice by heating the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the white part of the green onions, carrots, garlic, and ginger and cook, stirring, until softened but not browned, 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the peas and cooked cauliflower rice and cook, stirring, for another minute or two. Add soy sauce and sesame oil and cook, stirring just until everything is heated through and thoroughly mixed, about 1 minute. Add the green parts of the green onions and stir.
  • Serve fried rice & salmon garnished with green onions and sesame seeds if desired.
