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:

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.
