This miso cod recipe is from Chef Al Rosas of The Organic Chef Magazine. Chef Al Rosas focuses on innovation and preservation of Artisan foods and sustainable family farming. But he doesn’t just preach it, he offers wonderful recipes like this one to enjoy organic living. According to the chef, this miso cod recipe is one of his wife’s favorites.
The Sake can be of course your choice, filtered or unfiltered but the same rule applies as wine. If you would not drink it, do not cook with it. There is organic sake on the market as well as Mirin. This recipe can be used with any firm (sustainable wild caught) white fish (free of tripolyphosphates). You may choose to add Ginger or Garlic to this recipe I have done both and they work well. I serve mine on top of a toasted sushi rice cake sprinkled with sesame seeds and parsley. Please try different variations and let me know how they turn out.
