This week’s recipe for Cook the Book Fridays comes from Dorie Greenspan’s latest cookbook, Everyday Dorie and is an easy weeknight supper that still feels a little fancy (with not much effort = bonus on a weeknight!). This is based on a black cod recipe Dorie had eaten at Nobu in New York that she felt would work with salmon. Since I don’t eat salmon, we went with some of each fish (I do eat cod).
This marinade is miso paste, honey, lemon juice and soy sauce and the fish is marinated up to overnight in the fridge. Then you simply roast it at high temperature for around 10 minutes. The result is a kind of glaze that hardens on the outside of the fish, making for a pretty presentation and a tasty first bite.
We both loved this dish but also felt that the flavour didn’t follow through the rest of the fish, it was tasty enough (and wonderfully flaky) but we wanted more of the flavour than just on the outside! Served with plain rice and steamed broccoli, I guess we maybe wanted some “sauce” of some kind? I would make this again as it’s no-fuss but I might explore those ingredients for a sauce to drizzle over just before serving.
