Well, school just started again or probably will in the next week or so. It`s a mixed bag, for some it`s a little easier, for some a little more hectic. Endless beach or lake days are over, time to get back to pick up`s, drop off`s, after school activities, home work & trying to fit a good dinner somewhere in the mix. It`s hard, sometimes complicated & let`s face it, sometimes easier just to grab some processed, heat & eat, I can`t pronounce half the ingredients much less know what they are prepackaged garbage so sexily displayed & marketed at every turn. Ok, don`t do it! I`m going to help you with an absolutely phenomenally delish entrée that`s super easy, super healthy, gluten free, low carb, low fat can be on the table start to finish in 20 minutes. There`s no losing here & I`ll say again, just crazy good! What this simple man has for you today is 20 Minute Miso Glazed Sea Bass. BTW, even if you have any who aren’t really ¨fish people¨ they are going to love it. Trust me on this one!
This recipe will work perfectly with any type of firm white fish so feel free to use halibut, cod, grouper, mahi, snapper or whatever happens to be the freshest. Keeping with the low carb plan I paired the fish with a quick veggie stir fry & my 5 Minute Cauliflower Rice.Here`s what you`ll need for your 20 Minute Miso Glazed Sea Bass:
Sea Bass (or any other firm white fish)- 1-1 1/2 lbs cut in portions
Miso Paste- 1/3 cup
Ginger- a 1 inch piece peeled & sliced
Garlic- 2 cloves peeled
Soy Sauce or Tamari (gluten free)- 1 oz
Sesame oil- 1 tablespoon
Mirin- 1 oz
Rice Wine Vinegar- 1 oz
Sambal Olek or other Garlic Chile Paste- 1 Tablespoon (optional)
Toasted Sesame Seeds- 1 teaspoon to garnish
Green Onion or Chives- 1 Tablespoon thinly sliced to garnishPreheat your oven to 425 degrees.
Cut the fish into serving portions.
To a blender cup add the miso paste, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, mirin, sesame oil, rice vinegar & Sambal Olek (Garic Chili Paste) if using. Blend well until everything is mixed & smooth. Add the fish to a large freezer bag or bowl & pour the miso mix over. Turn to thoroughly coat. If you have the time let the fish marinate for a bit. If not don`t worry, it`ll still be fabulous.Line a baking sheet with foil (cleans up in a snap) & give it a quick hit with cooking spray. Bake for 8-15 minutes or until just cooked through depending on the thickness of your filets. That`s it, done done & done.
Remove to plates, garnish with a few toasted sesame seeds, a bit of sliced green onion & serve immediately. Enjoy your 20 Minute Miso Glazed Sea Bass!!
