Miso glazed salmon

Apologies for not posting for so long! 
I'm still cooking, but with the new baby (and a new baby blog, hehee), I am falling behind on food blogging.
I've also been cooking a lot more simple lately, so most things aren't blog worthy!  (unless you consider steamed vegetables with a dash of salt blog worthy....)

This miso glazed salmon recipe IS blog worthy.  I'm a fan of asian-tasting dishes and I'm a fan of anything with miso in it, so this dish can't go wrong.
It's sweet, it's salty, and it's the only way I'm ever going to make salmon ever again.  =]

What you need:
    1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    2 tablespoons soy sauce
    2 tablespoons hot water
    2 tablespoons miso (I use red miso)
    4 salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)

Combine the brown sugar, soy sauce, water, and miso in a bowl until evenly mixed.  Lay your salmon on a baking sheet, and brush the sauce over the surface of your salmon fillets. 
Broil the salmon under the broiler (about 4 inches away) on high.
 If you are using salmon fillets, broil for about 10 minutes.  If you are using bone-in salmon steaks, broil for about 14 minutes (for a 1 inch  steak).
Serve with steamed brown rice. yum yum!

(sorry there is no picture! I made this dish a month ago, and I forgot to take a picture. I just dug right in!)
