Sea bass glazed with miso marinade, is such a delicious and healthy dish which requires only five ingredients. As Japanese foods are amongst my favorites, I am especially good at whipping together some Asian themed menus which include my Corn Salad, Soy Ginger Salmon, Veggie Fried Rice (recipe coming soon), and Szechuan Sesame Broccoli Chicken (stay tuned, posting this week). Miso sea bass is a staple at all of the high end Asian fusion restaurants like Nobu, as the sweet taste of the miso mixture and fresh tender fish is absolutely delicious on some cooked white rice. While baking, this marinade caramelizes on the surface which results in a tangy flavor melting in the mouth.
This miso sea bass recipe which I found on epicurious.com and slightly tweaked is the best variation in my opinion, a must try.
– 8 -12-ounce Park East Kosher sea bass fillets (each about 3/4 inch thick)
– 2/3 cup sake
– 2/3 cup mirin (sweet Japanese rice wine)*
– 2/3 cup light yellow miso (fermented soybean paste)*
– 6 Tbsp. (packed) brown sugar
– 4 Tbsp. soy sauce
– 4 Tbsp. chopped green onions
– 4 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil
To make the miso marinade, combine the first 5 ingredients in a shallow glass baking dish. Add the sea bass and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 48 hours. Flip fish in marinade halfway through. Preheat broiler. Remove fish from marinade. Place fish on rimmed baking sheet. With broiler door slightly open, broil fish 6 inches from heat source until just opaque in center, about 8-10 minutes (or bake on 425 for 15-20 minutes). Transfer to plates. Sprinkle with green onions and basil and serve.
Tip: Double the recipe and split the marinade in half. Use half to marinate fish and store half in separate container. Bring to a boil in a saucepan while fish is cooking and pour over fish. This is a MUST TRY. The sea bass can sit in marinade up to 2 days.
