How To Make Cheesecake Factory Miso Salmon
The process of making this miso salmon Cheesecake Factory recipe is an easy 3 step process. Basically, all you need to do is marinate the salmon, cook the peas, and then finally make the sake butter and cook the salmon.
So, grab all of the ingredients, and let's get cooking!
STEP 1: Marinating The Salmon
Now, the component that gives this salmon such an incredible flavor is the salmon marinade.
To make it, combine the miso paste with the brown sugar, rice vinegar, and soy sauce in a small bowl. And if it's too thick, add 1-2 tablespoons of warm water to thin it out.
Now you can thoroughly coat the salmon filets with the miso mixture, cover them with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
STEP 2: Cooking The Snow Peas
Ok, so now you'll want to preheat the oven to 355 degrees Fahrenheit (180°C) so it's ready for the salmon once it's done marinating.
Then, you can prepare the snow peas.
To do that, boil 2-3 cups of salted water in a large pot over medium-high heat. Then, blanch the peas for 8-10 minutes, remove them from the heat, and cool down in an ice bath.
Step 3: Cooking The Salmon & Making The Sake Butter
After the salmon marinates, line a baking tray with aluminum foil and brush the foil with olive oil. Then, put the salmon on top and roast in the oven for about 12-15 minutes. It should be flaky but still pink inside.
Also, while the salmon is cooking, you can make the sake butter.
First, add the butter and shallots to a pot and cook at medium heat for 7 minutes. Then, add the dry sake, give it a stir to combine, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Step 4: Serving
So, now that everything is cooked, it's time to serve and dig in!
Serve the miso salmon with the snow peas on the side, and top it all off with the sake butter.
How to Store Miso Salmon
Alright, so this recipe will make 2 servings. But, if you want to serve it for a family dinner, just double or triple the recipe!
Then, if you happen to have any leftovers, you can store the miso salmon safely in the fridge for 3-4 days. The best way to keep it is in a shallow airtight container.
And it tastes delicious cold, but you can reheat it if you want to as well! For the best experience, you can use it to make this flavorful salmon rice bowl.
FAQs About Miso Salmon Recipe
What is miso salmon made of?
Miso salmon is made of a mix of ingredients - all of which are in this recipe - that gives it such a delicious and unique flavor. The key ingredients that make the salmon glaze are miso paste, brown sugar, soy sauce, and white rice vinegar. And then, to really enhance the flavors, it has a sake butter that gets drizzled on top after the salmon is cooked.
Can I use miso glaze on other types of fish besides salmon?
Yes, you can absolutely use this delicious miso glaze sauce on other types of fish. It goes really well on mahi mahi filets, and you can make this air fryer mahi mahi recipe!
Honestly, the glaze is so good that you can put it on some vegetables and roast them in the oven. Just mix together the miso glaze marinade ingredients in a bowl, then toss the vegetables in it and roast in the oven!
How will I know when the salmon is cooked?
The salmon will flake when it is fully cooked, which means that it will separate from the natural white lines that run across it. But internal temperature is the best indicator that it is cooked.
The internal temperature should be 145 degrees Fahrenheit (63°C). You'll want to make sure that you use a food thermometer and insert it in the thickest part of the salmon.

No joke the best salmon that I have ever had.
This salmon recipe is outrageously good.
I loved this salmon! When I first tried it at Cheesecake Factory, I was so surprised! I thought that it wouldn’t be that good, but when I ate that sauce and salmon with a topping of green beans, I loved it! And I’m only an 8 year old!
Can you use white miso instead of red miso?
Yes for sure
The miso salmon was awesome and spot on. The sake butter however did come out right for me but I didn’t need it. Made the salmon for friends and they loved it as did a friend I gave the recipe to.
This recipe is delicious! The butter didn’t turn out for me but I’m willing to give it another shot. This is basically just like the CF version. Thank you!
We're so happy you like it!
