Mock Miso Salmon

I made a meal the other night. I thought I was just throwing ingredients together for a quick meal and my husband declared it tasted like the Miso Salmon you find at The Cheesecake recipe. I didn't give it the presentation The Cheesecake factory does, but it was good. Even my son, who declares he doesn't like salmon (and hasn't ever eaten it since he was a year old) ate his entire plate.
