Raise your hand if you agree…some of the best recipes are spur of the moment creations, made from simple ingredients you have on hand, and super easy to make. Like this Miso Maple Broiled Salmon Nicoise Salad recipe.

I hadn’t planned on sharing this recipe with you at all, but I had to use up some Wild Alaska Salmon that had been thawing out in my fridge (FYI, I buy my salmon frozen, at Trader Joes and Costco, for the best prices).

You see, my boys, Mr. Spicy and Big Tex, casually dismissed my planned salmon dinner the other night (I was going to make this Easy Sticky Sesame Salmon), in lieu of Mexican food. Sigh…

So, I had 3 salmon filets in my fridge that needed to be used up ASAP, along with some green beans. So, naturally, I decided to cook it up for lunch.

After an internet search, I found this recipe, swapped the honey with maple syrup, added the green beans, and, voila, I had the most delicious Sheet Pan Miso Maple Broiled Salmon for lunch.

Luckily for me, I had 2 salmon filets and green beans leftover, so I popped them in the fridge, and vowed to eat them again the next day.

But, on day 2, it dawned on me, why not create a super yummy Nicoise-esque salad with my sweet potato, mixed greens, and olives I had on hand.

OMG! SO FRICKIN’ GOOD!!!

BTW, I know I’m taking some culinary liberties calling this a Nicoise Salmon Salad, considering it only has a few ingredients found in a traditional Salad Nicoise. But, I hope you’ll forgive me when you see how delicious this is 🙂

3 Reasons Why You Should Make this Miso Maple Broiled Salmon Nicoise Salad ASAP!

  1. Did I tell you yet that it’s DAMN tasty?!
  2. It’s good mood food. Salmon is loaded with mood boosting omega-3 fats. And, leafy greens are mood boosters too! (Read more: The Best Mood Boosting Foods to Help You Feel Good)
  3. Brain health. Another win for salmon + leafy green! Both are part of a MIND Diet friendly meal plan to help reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s and improve cognitive health. (Read more: MIND Diet Meal Plan)

How Long Does it Take to Broil Salmon?

If you consult the internet for broiled salmon recipes, you’ll find times ranging from 5 minutes to 10 minutes. I ended up boiling my salmon for 8 minutes, and while it was quite firm and tasty, I think I could have gotten away with less time.

Bottom Line: You know how you like your salmon prepared better than me. If you like it less cooked, shoot for 5 minutes to start. Or, if you prefer it cooked longer, aim for 8-10 minutes. Either way, I think it will be delicious!

Nutrition, Recipe Tips, & Serving Suggestions

  • This Miso Maple Broiled Salmon Nicoise Salad is gluten free (if you are celiac, be sure to use gluten free tamari and gluten free miso paste), low FODMAP, and paleo friendly.
  • You can make two meals out of one with this recipe like I did: 1. Miso Maple Broiled Salmon & Green Beans (delicious served with an orange on the side) 2.Miso Maple Broiled Salmon Nicoise Salad (if you’re adding the salmon and green beans to the salad the next day, no need to reheat. They are delicious cold!) #easymealprep for the win!
  • If you’re watching your sodium intake, you may want to omit the olives from the salad. Both the miso and low sodium gluten free tamari add quite a bit of sodium.
  • If you use parchment paper, prepare for it to burn a little. Oops! This wasn’t a big problem, but it may be better to line your baking sheet with aluminum foil instead.

Make the Miso Salmon & Green Beans

Make the Salmon Salads

  • While the salmon is is the broiler, bake 2 sweet potatoes in a microwave oven. Prick clean potatoes with a fork all around, and bake on a microwave safe dish for 5 minutes. Turn sweet potatoes over and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until soft.

  2. This Broiled Salmon Salad recipe is so healthy, vibrant, and tasty-looking! I love the idea of broiling the salmon the full way through. I normally just finish mine under the broiler, but I’m going to try this technique next time!

  3. I love miso so much that I almost always have a jar or two on hand but I’d never used it to make salmon. This recipe looked so delicious that I had to try it and it was every bit as yummy as I thought it would be. I made it for my husband and our two daughters and none of us could get enough. Thanks for a great recipe!
