MISO HORNY COD

This dish love you long time!

This dish love you long time!

The Japanese approach everything with perfection in mind.  Whether that’s cars, animation, or food, they got it going on.  Only a culture this awesome could give the world manga, ninjas and sushi.  Much praise for making a fillet of cod into an event that can bring tears to your eyes.  At least that’s how I feel every time I bite into a miso cod, which admittedly, gets me a little horny.  It’s a little sweet, a little savory, but 100% banging. After devouring this dish countless times at Japanese restaurants across the globe, I tried making it on my own for my New Year’s date.  How do you spell success?  Oh-fucking-yes!  The dish tasted just as good as any expensive Japanese dinner, but in the comfort of my home and WAY cheaper. The fish was tender, broke off into scrumptious flakes, and was perfectly complimented by the steamed bok choy that rounded out the dish.  I had dessert ready, but we didn’t get to that until morning.  The fish just made miso horny.  It was indeed a Happy Fucking New Year!

Total time: approximately 3 hours (mostly marinating fish)

Projected cost: $15

Drinking Buddy: Sake, beer or a dry white wine

miso-horny-cod-prepIngredients (for two):

1. ¼ cup of sake*

2. 1/3 cup of mirin*

3. ½ cup of sugar

4. ¾ cup of white miso paste*

5. ½ a lemon worth of juice

6. 2 tablespoons of soy sauce

7. 2 black cod filets*

8. 4 baby bok choys*

*all of these items are available at any Japanese/Asian market

Step 1

On medium heat, boil the sake and mirin for 20-30 seconds until the alcohol cooks out.  Add the miso paste and cook until the chunks dissolve into the liquid.  Finally, mix the sugar in and cook until it dissolves.  Set the pan aside and allow the miso sauce to cool.

Step 2

If necessary, de-bone the fish fillets.  Pat the fillets dry with a paper towel.  Slather up the fish with the miso sauce so they are fully coated with miso goodness.  Leave the fish in a bowl and cover with saran wrap.  Allow the fish to marinate in the miso sauce at least 2½ hours (the longer it marinates, the tastier it will be).

Step 3

When the fish is ready, preheat your oven to broil.  Wipe off the excess marinade and place the fillets in a baking ban.  Broil the fish until it the surface starts to brown.  Remove the pan, and then preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.  Throw the fish back in and cook 10-15 minutes longer.

Step 4

While the fish is baking, steam the baby bok choy until the leaves wilt and turn bright green.  Mix the soy sauce and lemon in a separate bowl and it toss the steamed bok choy. Serve the fish and bok choy artfully on the plate.  Your date should be remarkably wowed.
