Broiled Halibut with Orange and Miso Glaze

Broiled Halibut with Orange and Miso Glaze

A while ago I came across a recipe for broiled salmon with orange and miso glaze that sounded pretty tasty. The dish also fit in with my desire to try to include more fish in my diet. When I got to the fish monger the area around the salmon was a bit busy and I noticed some halibut. In addition to wanting to eat more fish I have been wanting to try different types of fish, though I often get side tracked by the salmon. I could not remember ever having halibut before so I ended up grabbing some even though it was a bit pricey. This broiled halibut with orange and miso glaze was super quick and easy to make. Just mix the orange and miso glaze and broil. I am rather glad that I ended up with the halibut as it was really nice. Halibut is a meatier fish like salmon though not as fatty. It was nice and moist and tender and easily came apart with a fork. The glaze was pretty tasty. The citrus orange went nicely salty miso and the sweet mirin. Using the orange and miso sauce as a glaze was nice and quick though next time, if I have more time, I think I might try marinating the fish in the sauce for a while.

I went with the orange theme for the rest of the meal as well. I had an simple edamame salad with an orange and sesame dressing and some chopped mint. The dressing included orange juice, orange zest, soy, mirin, rice wine vinegar and sesame oil. I also had some shiitake mushrooms sauteed in sesame oil and finished with a splash of orange juice and some zest. Overall it was a light and tasty meal.

Miso is is a fermented soybean product from Japan. It is most commonly used in miso soup but it has many applications in Japanese cuisine. You should be able to find miso in the Asian section of your local grocery store or at your local Asian grocery store.

Mirin is a Japanese sweet sake that is commonly used in Japanese cuisine. It comes both with and without alcohol. You should be able to find mirin in the Asian section of your local grocery store or at your local Asian grocery store.

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons miso
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon mirin
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon orange zest
4 6 ounce halibut fillets (each about 1 1/2 inches thick)

Directions:
1. Mix the miso, orange juice, mirin, soy sauce, brown sugar and zest in a bowl.
2. Place the halibut on a baking pan with the skin side down.
3. Brush the top of the halibut with the orange and miso glaze.
4. Broil in a preheated oven until the miso blaze starts to bubble, about 3 minutes.
5. Cover the halibut with foil and continue to broil until the halibut is cooked, about 4 minutes.

Your passion is so exciting! This looks like something I NEED TO make! Just a question - do you cook for yourself or do you have to feed other people too? :)

I like halibut for it's firm texture. Halibut, salmon and cod are three fish that I like when I'm away from Asia.

Helene said...

I think it was a great idea to pair the miso flavored fish with edamame -- bringing some Japanese flavors/ingredients together. I love any type of citrus with fish. The tangy flavors brighten everything. I like this dish because it looks healthy and very appetizing at the same time :)

cakebrain said...

I'm not a super huge fan of halibut (a bit thick for my taste), but your version sure looks very flavorful! I agree, we definitely should be getting more fish in our diets :)

Fish and citrus were made for each other and I luv halibut.

This looks great - I love the idea of using miso for things other than soup :)

This looks really good. We buy blue hake which is also a firm white fish - and I'm thinking this recipe would work with that also! Thanks!
