Grilled Miso Fish Fillets

Recipe By : A Spoonful of Ginger by Nina Simonds
Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Fish & Seafood Marinades, Salsa & Sauces

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

2 lb halibut steaks -- about 1" thick

Miso Marinade:
1/2 cup sweet white miso (shiro miso)
1/3 cup sweetened rice wine (mirin)
1 1/2 tbsp fresh ginger -- minced
2 tbsp scallion greens -- minced

Rinse the fish steaks under cold water and drain thoroughly in a colander. Cut the steaks into six pieces and place in a bowl. Add the Miso Marinade to the fish steaks and toss lightly to coat the entire surface of the fish. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate. Let the halibut marinate for at least 1 hour, or for several hours.

Prepare a medium-hot fire for grilling and place the grill about 3 inches above the coals. Remove the fish from the marinade, spreading the marinade on with your hands so there is a light coating. Arrange the fish steaks on the grill and cook about 5-6 minutes on each side, or until the flesh is opaque all the way through.

Alternatively, you may broil the fish about 7-9 minutes on each side, or until the fish flakes when prodded with a knife. The miso glaze should bubble and brown at the edges.
