Miso Cod for #SundaySupper Steamy Kitchen and a #Giveaway

Miso Cod
I was first introduced to the Steamy Kitchen blog by Jaden Hair last year. I instantly became a fan of hers for a few reasons. I love cooking Asian cuisine and her recipes are healthy and very easy to follow. I have never once been intimidated by any of her recipes. Jaden also resides a few miles from Tampa and there is nothing I love more than supporting fellow Tampa food bloggers. When I heard Jaden was writing a cookbook, I was very excited for her. My friends at #SundaySupper dedicated this week to Jaden and Steamy Kitchen for the launch of her cookbook. I gladly accepted to be one of the twenty bloggers selected to receive her cookbook AND give one away to one of my readers!

We were offered nine recipes to make this week and I did something very out of the box for me. I decided on the Miso Cod - which happens to be a fish I have never prepared at home, marinated in Miso, something that I have never cooked with. I went to my local ethnic food store and searched the spice aisle for 20 minutes looking for miso - I finally asked for help, to find out it is located in the refrigerated section. Oops. Truth be told, I had no idea what Miso was.

Along with my miso, I grabbed a beautiful batch of baby bok choy, some fresh ginger and other goodiess. Upon arriving home, I flipped through Jadens cookbook and dog eared more pages than I have ever done in any of my books. I came across a recipe for garlic ginger bok choy - double score. I was cooking in true Jaden style this night.

Miso Cod Recipe: 
Reprinted with permission from Steamy Kitchen’s Healthy Asian Favorites by Jaden Hair, copyright © 2013. Published by Ten Speed Press, a division of Random House, Inc.

2 tablespoons shiro miso (white miso)
2 tablespoons sake
2 tablespoons mirin (or 1 tablespoon honey mixed with 1 tablespoon water)
1 tablespoon sugar or honey 4 pieces black cod (about 6 ounces each)

Combine the miso, sake, mirin, and sugar in a resealable bag. Mix well. Add the fish fillets to the bag, seal the bag, removing as much air as possible. Massage the bag a bit, spreading the marinade all over the fillet. Refrigerate for 2 hours or up to 2 days.

 Heat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove the fish from the marinade and use a paper towel to gently wipe off any excess marinade, but don’t rinse the fish. Discard marinade. Place the fish in the prepared baking sheet and bake until the fish flakes easily, about 10 to 12 minutes.

Move the fish to the top rack and place 6 inches from heating element. Turn oven to broil to brown and caramelize the fish, about 1 minute. Keep a close eye on it as it will burn easily. Serve immediately.

  7. The cod sounds delish. My favorite Asian dish to make at home is BBQ pork steamed buns. I make these using a recipe from an old Martin Yan cookbook.

  16. I really need to add more fish to my families diet. If only I could get them to agree. This looks like a perfect recipe to test out on them.

  17. I love miso but not so much of cod and afraid to cook it and I know it is healthy to eat so I am going to have to try it out. My favorite Asian dish is soba noodles that are served cold with wasabi and scallions. It is so delicious! Can't wait to join in on the #SundaySupper chat. @frogger097

  23. I'm not sure if the comment is in time (someone on twitter said to make it by midnight but the directions say by 8 p.m. EST), but in any case, my favorite Asian dish is Beijing eggs and tomato, a homestyle Asian dish eaten for supper more often than not, but I like it for breakfast. It's generally the first dish a child is taught to make in China. blog about Asian foods all year long at http://saucyskillet.blogspot.com if anyone wants more recipe ideas.
