Miso Salmon Recipe and Rice Noodles
Miso paste that is an ingredient of our miso salmon recipe below comes in two different varieties. Those different varieties of miso paste are differed by the proportion of every ingredient, special type of koji that is used, also the total time that is used for the fermentation. First miso paste is the light miso that’s also known as sweet miso or mellow miso. Light miso usually is made with rice miso that’s sweet called Shiro. Light miso comes with the light color like beige, yellow, or white and the taste of this light miso is less salty. Compared to another miso paste, the dark miso, light miso has higher carbohydrates.
