To make this miso-glazed salmon supper, get started with the veggies by sautéing onions and garlic in olive oil over medium-heat. Add quartered beets to the skillet and cook until they’re soft. Throw in some kale and continue cooking until it’s wilted. Once finished, set aside the vegetables and prepare the miso glaze and salmon. Grab a mixing bowl and combine the glaze ingredients, then spread half of the mixture onto your salmon. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve on a plate with cooked vegetables and drizzle on the remaining miso glaze.
