Do you think marinating the salmon overnight would ruin the fish?

Any thoughts on a side dish to go with miso-glazed salmon? What about udon noodles with sesame oil and soy sauce along with a veggie?

Yes. Especially if there is anything acidic in it.

Fish needs only an hour or so.

Muddy,

Do you have an asian market nearby? Or a whole foods? Buy a container of white miso paste. It's a lot, but it lasts forever.

For salmon, I use miso paste, brown sugar or palm sugar, and fish sauce or soy sauce, ginger, garlic and sometimes lemongrass. I let the fish sit in it for about an hour before cooking.

Here's a similar recipe:Miso-Glazed Salmon Recipe - Fish - MyRecipes.com

You can also easily make miso soup with granulated dashi.

Miso is also a great addition to all kinds of things, from soups and stews to salad dressings. It adds a savory "umami" flavor.

Seaweed salad or cold sesame spinache?

Amen. just make sure the salmon you are buying is labeled "WILD!" (and preferably Alaska).

Speaking of wild salmon - there was an article in NY Times a few months back
stating farmed salmon is being marketed as wild, just like much olive oil is
not 100% olive oil.
I would trust Whole Foods to label their salmon honestly - but who can afford their
prices.
Wild salmon is much less fatty than farmed - that's how you can be sure of it.
Curiously - most canned salmon is wild.
