Miso  Red Sea Bass Fillet by Appetit Voyage
I can't help it,... for the ones who are following my blog for a long time, you would have noticed perhaps that lately, I am mainly inspired by Asia and the Middle East. You just have to check the last recipes I posted: caramelized spicy prawns, Oriental Spinach, Mushrooms samosas, Mini guide to understand Japanese Cuisine, or the Chinese Cuisine, Culture discovery.

My trip to China has just reactivated my fascination for this continent that started a lot of years ago with Japan.

Yesterday night, I had some friends over for dinner, and wanted to cook some fresh fish. For days, I was wondering how to cook the fish, and I woke up yesterday morning, and had this idea I want to share with you because it really came out brightly!

Ingredients for 6 persons:
- 1 kilo of Red Sea bass fillet
- 1 tbs. of Shiro miso paste (you can find it in Asian shops)
- 1 tbs. of Chinese green tea
- 1 tbs. of sesame seeds
- 1 spring onion
- 2 tbs. soy sauce
- Pepper
- 2 tbs. of corn starch (I usually use Maizena)

The Miso Sauce:
Prepare a tea with the green tea leaves and let it infuse for at least 5 minutes.
In a pan, mix the miso paste with the tea. Take a spoon of the liquid mixture in a small bowl and add the corn starch. Stir till the corn starch is total and well mixed with no lumps. 

Then pour back to the pan the corn starch mixture and stir for 3 minutes, till the sauce gets a thick consistence. Add the soy sauce and the pepper.


The Fish:
You only need to steam the fresh fish 7 minutes so, You can do it at the last moment, before service.

Prepare 6 portions in the fillet and place it on the steamer and top with the tea leaves of your tea.

For the service, warm up the miso sauce. Spread first the sauce on the plate. Place on top the fish with the skin on top (if you kept the skin). Decorate with the fresh spring onion chopped thinly and the sesame seeds.

A very nice side dish to this delicate and tasty fish, is My Dutch Tian gratin, you can find on my e-book World Tour of Tian Gratins. Broccoli is especially suiting the miso taste. I hope you will enjoy it as I did!
