If you want a quick and easy fish recipe that still is delicious, tasty and flavorful you have to try this one. Im really love Asian flavors, they can make almost any dish go from boring to amazing. The fish marinade is made using white miso paste, tamari, rice vinegar and fresh ginger. The miso paste provides salt and depth to the marinade. Miso is a great taste enhancer in cooking. The tamari gives the marinade a bit of a salty yet sweet flavor. The sweetness in the marinade comes from the rice vinegar. And then we have the fresh ginger that gives the marinade some heat. Imagine the soft and tender fish in this amazing miso marinade, served with a crunchy, warm and sweetish bok choy. To add some extra crunch and flavor I topped this dish with raw sugar snaps, scallion, cilantro, red chili and furikake seasoning.

A few tips:

  • Dice the fish into equally sized pieces to make sure they have the same cooking time.
  • Let the fish marinade in the miso marinade for at least 10 minutes.
  • Bake the bok choy on high temperature so it starts to get a little browned and soft, yet not cooked through.
  • Don’t throw away the excess miso marinade, drizzle it over the boy choy.
  • This dish is good to store in the fridge for 3-4 days.
