Easy Citrus Miso Sauce

by Sherri Koehler on June 13, 2011

Also filed under the category of “Too Simple for a Recipe” is a very basic miso and citrus glaze I use a lot. Well, in interest of not assuming that this stuff is obvious to everyone, here’s a very quick recipe.

The Stuff

  • 1/3 c. freshly squeezed citrus juice (lemon, orange, lime, grapefruit…)
  • 2 T miso
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 t freshly ground ginger, optional
  • drizzle of sesame oil, optional

The Making

Whisk together all ingredients in a small dish. Use as a glaze for grilling or a sauce for stir-fries. Also makes a nice dipping sauce.

Yep, that’s as hard as it gets. Get whisking!

A note about miso… red miso will give this a darker, savory note. White or chickpea miso will make this very light, salty and slightly sweet. Go crazy, experiment!
