Baked Salmon, Mushrooms and Chunky Potatoes in Foil with Miso and Mayonnaise

Baked Salmon, Mushrooms and Chunky Potatoes in Foil with Miso and Mayonnaise

This is my second recipe using the golden combination of salmon and potatoes.
The salmon and potatoes are tasty with the rich miso and mayonnaise flavour.
This is a sister recipe of my baked potato recipe.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Salmon fillets
2
Salt and pepper
to taste
Potato
1 large
Enoki mushrooms (or other mushrooms)
1/2 of a large packet
Onion
1/4 small
Japanese leek
about 10 cm long
★Miso
1 to 2 tablespoons
★Mayonnaise
1 to 2 tablespoons
★Mirin
1 to 2 tablespoons
★Sugar
1/2 to 1 teaspoon

Steps

1. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the salmon fillets. Peel the potatoes and cut into 1-2 cm cubes. Soak in water briefly.
2. Transfer the cut potatoes to a heat proof dish and add a little water. Cover with cling film and heat in a 600W microwave for about 2.5 minutes.
3. Slice the onion thinly. Chop the leek. Combine the ★ ingredients and chopped leek well.
4. Take a long sheet of foil. Place the onion→ salmon→ potatoes at the side of salmon→ enoki mushrooms on top of salmon on the piece of foil (in this order). Pour the combined seasonings.
5. Seal the foil and grill for 15 to 20 minutes under the grill. (I have a grill which can cook both sides.)
6. Adjust the amount of seasonings according to the size of the fish fillets. I used one tablespoon of combined seasonings for a big fillet and it tasted a little too light.
7. Remember that the cooking time differs according to the grill you use at home.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to make another recipe using salmon and potatoes. I thought the potatoes with miso and mayonnaise would be tasty.
