Steamed Miso Cod Fish

I'm happy to receive comments in my blog but I'm not making enough effort to reply to all the comments.  With blogging and blog hopping, it is already quite a handful to me.  In fact, sometimes I don't even have time to publish the comments.  Reason being, I'll only publish if I know I have time to reply to the comments, else I won't, in case I forget to reply (that happened so many times).  I don't know how other bloggers do it, especially the popular bloggers (they have easily over 50 comments in a day!).  Honestly speaking, I don't think I have the time to manage that.  So, I'm happy with what I have now.  Sour grapes?  No, definitely not.  Just in contradictions.  Hahaha!

Enough of my thoughts.  I've never tried using miso paste for any other cooking besides soup so when I saw Sonia's posting here, I knew I just have to try it.  I love cod fish!

I have 2 pieces of cod fish in my freezer so I cooked this for lunch (weeks back).  I reduced the usage of miso paste slightly as I was worried it may end up too salty.  In addition, I always use more water when steaming fish as my kids like to add the sauce into their rice.

I cannot disagree with Sonia, this is a perfect combination!

Ingredients
350g Cod fish (tail part), sliced
6 red dates, washed and sliced
some ginger, shredded

Seasonings
1 tbsp Japanese Miso paste
2 - 3 tbsp water
A dash of Pepper
A few drops of sesame oil

Garnishing
Spring onions, shredded (soak in water to get nice curl)

Method
  1. Place cod fish, red dates and ginger in a steaming plate.
  2. Mix all seasonings in a small bowl and spoon over cod fillet/steak.
  3. Steam over high heat for about 5 - 7 mins.
  4. Garnish with spring onions and serve immediately.

Miso goes well with so many things and so so versatile.
I'm sure your kids enjoyed the gravy with rice.

This dish looks good and simple enough for me try! I read your blog regularly but sometimes I hardly have time to leave a comment, yes, it replying comments and questions takes up a lot of time.

Wendy,
You are right, miso goes well so many things. I've tried Anncoo's miso chicken and it tasted great too.

YummyKoh,
This is my first time cooking it this way but it sure won't be the last.

HHB,
I read yours regularly too and like you, I seldom leave a note :P Guilty! Sometimes, I don't want to comment just for the sake of making a comment but occassionally, I'll still drop a line or two to show my presence ;-)
