    What happens when you give a fisherman a surprise recipe? A little magic we like to call Boat Deck Cookin'! Here's an early one, back before the series had its proper title.


    Prep time: 5 min
    Cook time: 5 min
    Total time: 40 min


    • ½ orange, zested and juiced
    • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, grated
    • 1 tablespoon mirin
    • 2 tablespoons tamari
    • ⅓ cup yellow miso
    • 1-pound sockeye fillet
    • 2 tablespoons coconut oil


    In a large bowl, combine orange zest, juice, scallions, garlic, ginger, mirin, tamari, and miso. Marinate sockeye in the miso mixture for at least 30 minutes or overnight.

    In a medium, preferably nonstick pan, over medium-high heat, melt the coconut oil. Sear the salmon, skin-side down, until the sockeye is about ⅓ of the way cooked, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Flip, cooking for an additional 2 to 3 minutes until the salmon is flaking. Serve immediately.
