Easy Miso-Yogurt Oven-Baked Salmon


This easy and nutritious miso-yogurt baked salmon recipe has the most simple and delicious miso marinade made from just 6 simple ingredients and comes together in under 15 minutes!


  • 1 lb of salmon, cut into 34 fillets 
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil (use unrefined for that delicious coconutty flavor!) 

Sauce Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp plain greek yogurt ( I prefer higher fat for this recipe, 5-11% but any will work!)
  • 2 Tbsp mayo
  • 2 tsp miso paste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper


  1. Add coconut oil to a cast iron skillet and place in the oven.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F with the skillet in there to heat up and melt the oil.
  3. While the oven preheats, combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl and whisk with a fork to combine.
  4. Once oven is preheated, remove the skillet and add salmon to it, skin side down. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Pour the yogurt sauce over top and bake for for 5-7 minutes, keeping an eye to make sure it does not overcook. Salmon is done when opaque throughout. If you find it needs more time, continue baking, checking every 1-2 minutes. 
  6. Serve with rice or potatoes and your favorite veggie side. 


  • Salmon: Can be subbed for white fish, like cod or halibut.
  • You can also do this with one large piece of salmon but will need to increase cook time accordingly
  • Mayo: Can be subbed for vegan mayo, or replaced with equal parts more yogurt (that said, I do like the consistency that the fat from the mayo adds!)
