I love quick and easy to prepare dish. Anything to cut down my preparation and cooking time is my best friend. And once I learned that I could use my oven to bake or steam fish, it was like striking gold to me. Because finally I found the healthier, quick and easy alternative.
I love to experiment with different toppings for my bake fish. After I read from Daphne and EMWK blogs that they used Miso in their baked fish, I was really interested to try it out (still waiting for them to post their version though! ;o)). My first attempt was a failure because I underestimated how salty Miso paste was and we ended out scraping all the Miso paste away before we ate the fish. The above picture was my successful second attempt. :o) Here sharing with you my recipe so that you won't make the same mistake I made earlier, especially for those who never try it before.
3 Tilapia fish fillets
1 Tbsp. Miso paste
1 Tbsp. hot/warm water
1 tsp. sesame oil
Sprinkle of black and white sesame seeds
Canola oil spray
1. Preheat your oven to 450'F.
2. Cover your baking pan with foil and place the fish fillets on top.
3. In a bowl, soften the miso paste with warm water by stirring with a spoon. Add sesame oil and mix well. Take some of this paste and spread all over the top of each of the fish fillets. Then, sprinkle the top of the fish fillets with black and white sesame seeds. Lastly, spray the fish fillets with some canola oil.
4. Place in the oven uncovered and bake for 10 mins. Serve hot.
NOTE: If you use other thicker fish fillets, remember to adjust the baking time.
