Miso Butter Salmon – Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.

Here it is, I have finally gotten around to trying my first dinner recipe from Elyse Kopecky and Shalane Flanagan’s book, Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow. I picked the miso butter salmon recipe because it seemed simple and was quick to prepare/cook. I also love salmon so that was a huge plus.


Note: Similar to my other recipe reviews from Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow., I won’t post the recipe but highly recommend checking out the book for yourself!


Ingredients were pretty easy as I needed minimal ingredients, most of which I already had. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the exact brand of miso at Whole Foods but I’m still in search of it so let me know if you find it. Also, the Miso Butter recipe is actually in a different section of the book so you can even use the topping/dressing on chicken or vegetables.



I recommend pairing with some blanched green beans and rice – YUM! Side note, you may have noticed in my first picture that I’m back to eating white rice. It may be unhealthy or it may not be (depends who you ask I guess), either way, it’s a new year and I decided that I am going to eat it in moderation. Sometimes I’ll eat white rice, sometimes I’ll eat brown rice and sometimes I’ll mix it!



Ok overall, I found the miso butter to be a little strong for my liking (maybe I put too much) but all in all, this was a good dish. Next time, I will hopefully try the recommended miso and maybe put a little less of it on the salmon.

I can’t wait to try more dinner recipes from the book! What are some of your favorite dinner recipes from the book?
