A magic seasoning, Shio Koji goes well with salmon as well as other types of fish. It can remove the fishy smell and add a rich umami flavour. You just need to be a little more careful when cooking because Shio Koji is easy to get burnt.

You can cook it in the oven or put it on the grill instead.

Food with Shio Koji is very easy to get burnt. I would recommend you stay with the food while cooking. I also recommend using aluminium foil or oven paper to easily clean the frying pan after cooking.
The longer you marinate, the saltier the salmon becomes. I would recommend not marinating too long.
Shio Koji is suitable with raw salmon (Sashimi) as well!
