I love seafood, but eating fish has always been a challenge for me. So, I’m always looking for creative way on how to cook fish.
Since I lived in Hawaii, I have been a fond of miso, and in Hawaii, they have what they called miso butterfish… yuuummm-o! It has always been my favorite. But, where I live now, it has been difficult to find butterfish. So, since there are plenty of salmon, and I can find frozen mahi-mahi in Costco, I have been using those two interchangeably when cooking miso glazed fish. I think so though, that you can also use halibut or sea bass, and they would taste good.
This recipe is very easy and simple to make. It would surprised you that it tastes sooo good!
2 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons white miso (soybean paste)
1/4 cup sherry
4 tsp mirin
2 (6-ounce) fish fillets
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives for garnish
Preheat broiler or grill.
Combine first 5 ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Arrange fish in a shallow baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spoon miso mixture evenly over fish. Leave the fish to marinade overnight.
Broil or grill for 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting twice with miso mixture. Sprinkle with chives.
Serve over bed of salad or rice. Enjoy!!
