Miso-Baked Halibut and A Special Package

I love fish and although I am a vegetarian, I still eat seafood. It’s just what works best for me- I have tried being vegan, tried different forms of vegetarianism and have found that having access to fish and seafood as a protein source works well for me. I love halibut but I find it has very little flavour. I wanted to kick things up a notch with a great asian-inspired flavour. It turned out fabulous, especially for having no recipe or measurements. (I’ll try to estimate how much of each ingredient I used, but fool around with the amounts until it is the way you want it to taste).
Miso Baked Halibut
  • 1 tbsp miso paste
  • 1 tsp tamari
  • 1 tsp hoisin sauce
  • zest of 1/4 of an orange
  • juice of 1/4 of an orange
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp honey
  • 1 large halibut fillet

Combine all ingredients together except for halibut. Mix well so the miso paste is incorporated- not clumpy. Pour mixture over the halibut and let it marinade for at least 10 minutes.  Put the halibut and any extra sauce onto a aluminum foil lined try. Broil  for 5 minutes and then cover with aluminum foil and broil for 4 more minutes (depending on the size of your fillet).

I woke up a few days ago and shortly after there was a loud knock at my door. I grumbled and thought ‘who could this be’ *let’s just say I was still in my pajamas and wasn’t expecting anyone*. When I saw it was the mail girl, I got SOOOO excited. She was carrying an extra large parcel from Sophie at Sophies Foodie Files. It contained plenty of chocolate, chocolate sauce, a syrup, chocolate fondue, wonderful cookies and treats, a deck of playing cards, a neat cookie-cutter and more!
Sophie picked out such wonderful Belgian things for me to try and I must say, it was difficult to resist eating them all at once! With my morning coffee I sampled a honey waffle biscuit, and a teeny spoonful of speculoos paste. They are FABULOUS!!!! I would definitely like to visit Belgium and the Netherlands at some point in my life!! Sophie was so thoughtful that she included information and links to websites on each product!
Everything is beautifully made and in perfect sized portions- so different from North America where everything tends to be in excess. I really enjoy the style of European products and continue to sample my way through this lovely package!
Thanks Sophie for being a fabulous foodie friend. Your package is on it’s way to Belgium!!
