Miso Teriyaki Salmon

I was honestly inspired to make this dish after eating at the Cheesecake Factory.  It’s my new favorite thing on the menu, but I don’t have a cheesecake factory where I live so I wanted to try making it myself.  The version I made tastes great but closer to traditional teriyaki so I dubbed it “Miso Teriyaki Salmon”.  Let’s be real here, it probably healthier too… 

This is a perfect food to bring for lunch because its great hot or cold.  As shown above, it fits well in a bento box and goes well with rice!  It’s easy to make ahead, then pack it up in the morning!  Garnish with sesame seeds and you have a fine looking lunch!!  

(Tip: Be sure to chill the food before packing, also keep the food cold as possible until you plan to eat to prevent spoilage.  Reheat in a microwave at lunch time or eat cold.  It’s good both ways!)

For the Salmon

  • 4-6oz fillet salmon 
  • ¼ Cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 ½ tbsp white miso
  • ½ tbsp red miso
  • 2 tbsp sake
  • 2 tbsp water

For the rice

  • ½ cup white jasmine rice
  • 1 cup water

Simply combine the rice and water in a pot and bring to a boil, stir, then cover with a tight lid and reduce the temperature to a simmer.  Simmer for 20 minutes then remove the lid and fluff with a fork.  Serve!!

{I lied when I said I would finish it tomorrow. I’m supposed to be doing an essay and instead I’m watching Ace Attorney videos and doing this on my school laptop. I haven’t done 2Ps in a long time, so hopefully I got Matt’s personality somewhat correct. Also, thank you!}



Onigiri are rice balls with a filling.  I was introduced to onigiri through pokemon, but at the time I thought they were called doughnuts!  Later on when I became more interested in cooking and different cuisines I learned their actual names.  Initially I thought they’d be sweet (thanks again pokemon!) due to growing up with the impression that they were some kind of doughnut or sweet.  There are plenty of ways to make onigiri, yet none of them actually contain sweet ingredients!  Most balls are either plain balls of rice or contain a savory or salty filling.  Fillings include—pickled or salt plums (umeboshi), tuna with mayo, bonito flakes, fish roe, and a variety of salmon (baked, salted, grilled, etc).  The list can go on forever, it’s like pizza toppings; there’s traditional and then there’s everything else :)

Onigiri are great in lunch boxes because they’re a relatively small size, simple to make and contain a nice balance of protein to carbohydrate.  To make about 3 onigiri balls you’ll need…


  • 2 cup sushi rice
  • 4 ½ cup water salt 
  • 1 sheet nori (cut into 4″x1″ strips)
  • Salt, seasonings, vinegar, etc. (Optional)

Soooo remember that Doctor Awesome Au?  Me too.  My passion for it was recently revived.  Had trouble deciding who Moist might be, but I settled on Austria cause Gilbert and Roderich as roommates is rlly funny.  Romano was also in the running.

I was in the shower and I remembered how Part one ended, and I couldn’t help laughing while I imagined Gilbert stomping away yelling “BALLS!”

And of course, I should mention the original Au idea was thought up by Artisticallyreadyandenthused, whom I adore irl.  We found it in her old sketchbooks and she gave me permission to build off of it.  Just thought I would remind ya’ll she gets credit <3

Anyway, I would love more motivation to draw this Au again, so do you guys have any specific moments of this Au you wanna see?
