Miso Fish with Spring Onions & Sesame Seeds

I’ve been wanting to try using a miso marinade since I saw Tetsuya do one on Japanese Food Safari some time ago. Not Quite Nigella inspired me to get the new Bill Granger book, and once I had a flick through, I knew I really wanted to try this recipe.

It was a really nice, healthy option. If you love the taste of miso soup, you will definitely love miso fish. The lemon and the sugar along with the miso help to give the flavour a bit more depth. It was SO incredibly easy to make, just made the marinade, spread it on the fish and grill! Too easy. Great for those of us watching our weight and not wanting to put on an extra layer over winter.

Miso Fish with Spring Onions & Sesame Seeds
Bill Granger

4 x 180g pieces firm white fish fillet, such as snapper or blue eye, skinned
2 tablespoons white miso paste
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teapsoons extra virgin olive oil

to serve:
finely shredded spring onions
sesame seeds
steamed rice
steamed green vegetables, such as baby Asian leafy greens and asparagus

1. Place the fish on a lightly oiled baking tray. Preheat the grill to high.

2. Stir miso paste, sugar, lemon juice and olive oil together in a bowl to combine. Brush the fish with the miso mixture and place the tray under the grill for 5-7 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through.

3. Serve at once, sprinkled with shredded spring onions and sesame seeds. Accompany with steamed rice and green vegetables.

Serves 4.


Voila! Bon Appétit!

    Hi Shellie, do you think this recipe would also work with salmon?

    (I'm getting addicted to your blog!)
