- ¼ cup of brown sugar
- ½ cup of real mayonnaise
- ¼ cup of miso (soybean paste)
- ½ teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 cloves of minced garlic
- And your favorite fish filet
- Salt and pepper (white pepper tastes best with this dish)
- Canola Oil
Start by mixing all the ingredients (except the fish) in a bowl. Stir until completely mixed.
Salt and pepper you fish filets on both sides. While you pre heat your pan. Before you put your fish in the pan you want it to be very very hot to the point where it just begins to smoke. Then add enough canola oil to coat the pan evenly. Set oven to 400.
*TIP the best pan to use for this process is a cast iron pan or a skillet that has a metal handle. This will allow you to move it from the stove top to the broiler.
Cook your filet for about 2 minutes on each side then baste it with a coating of the miso glaze then move to the broiler. Let cook for about 3 minutes then baste the fish again with glaze.
Let cook for about 5 minutes once the fish is nice and flakey and the glaze bubbly take it out.
Garnish Suggestions: green onion, Sambal Chili Paste, fried onion, or Nori Komi Furikake
