Miso Salmon- Cheesecake Factory Style… ;)

I found a recipe that is very close to that of the Miso Salmon at Cheesecake Factory.  It is a sweet tasty piece of salmon sitting on a bed of rice with the most crazy white sauce under it that I always ask for extra since they like to hope I don’t notice it’s there.   We’ll after some research on the net I found a recipe that I’d say came pretty close with hitting it on the mark.   I tried Group Recipes- take on this recipe and loved it- the only change I made was adding a couple of pinch’s of sugar to the white sauce recipe plus I didn’t add the lime to it.

Here’s my rant about the Cheesecake Factory-  I have boycotted this restaurant for one major reason, you just can’t feel good about yourself to make people wait 45 minutes or longer to be seated and to not accept reservations on top of that???  What kind of establishment runs so poorly?  Oh….that’s right most big Chain restaurants do this…..which is why I avoid them.    Luckily for me….I found a recipe that can satisfy my love for this chain’s Miso Salmon recipe so there I don’t need you Cheesecake Factory!  Okay….I lie…..I will still pick up a cheesecake from you…..although I’m pretty good at making cheesecakes too….  😉


  • Preheat broiler.
  • Combine first 4 ingredients, stirring with a whisk.
  • Arrange fish in a shallow baking dish coated with cooking spray.
  • Spoon miso mixture evenly over fish.
  • Broil 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting twice with miso mixture.
  • Sprinkle with chives.
  • Sake Butter
  • In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, sweat the ginger and shallots in the one tablespoon butter for two to three minutes.
  • Add 1/2 cup of the sake, bring to a boil, and reduce by two-thirds, about three minutes.
  • Add the heavy cream, bring to a boil, and reduce by half, about two minutes.
  • Add the pieces of cold butter to the sauce, bit by bit, whisking constantly over medium-high heat. The butter will emulsify, creating a thick creamy sauce.
  • Once all the butter has been incorporated, remove the pan from the heat. Whisk in the remaining one teaspoon sake and the lime juice.
  • Season to taste with salt and 2 pinches of sugar.
  • Place Sake butter on plate, top with a bed of rice, place salmon on top of rice.
