Miso Baked Cod

Miso 5

Miso marinaded cod, although you can use any white fish

This recipe is really quick to prepare recipe, tasty & so good for you. It is perfect for mid-week when you get back from work or the gym & you are time-poor. You can even make the marinade the night before & when you get home, pop the fish in the oven…dinner in under 15 mins. Easy!

Miso paste has a deep savoury umami flavour. Serve with steamed vegetables or a salad, this makes a simple yet tasty & nutritious meal.

Why eat miso paste? It is a complete protein, containing all the essential amino acids, it facilitates good digestion by stimulating secretion of digestive juices in the stomach & being a fermented food, it is a probiotic. Lastly, it is a rich vegetable-based source of B vitamins (especially B12) & is also high in anti-oxidants, so helps protect against free radical damage.

You can buy miso paste readily in supermarkets & high street health shops & on-line. I tend to  buy mine from oriental supermarkets where it is under half-the price!

Just a few simple ingredients is all you need!

2 tbsp honey

1 tbsp rice wine vinegar

1/2 red onion, finely chopped

In a small non-metallic bowl, make the marinade: mix together the miso paste, white wine, crushed garlic, chopped root ginger, honey & rice wine vinegar.

Bake on a greased baking sheet, skin-side down at 160ºC for 10-14 mins.

I like to serve mine with steamed veg or a salad, with wedge of lime juice to contrast with the saltiness of the miso a sprinkling of ground flaxseed.
