Miso Soy Glazed Halibut

Miso Soy Glazed Halibut

The first day of Spring and I was totally craving some fresh fish with fresh flavors. This Miso Soy Glazed Halibut was exactly what I needed to kick off our spring right. Nothing says spring like getting the first round of fresh halibut in the grocery stores. I typically shop the fish counter on Tuesdays when I know they get their fish in.

Tip: Ask you fish counter what days they get their fresh fish in and shop on those days.

It just so happened that this particular Tuesday I was in the market for some fresh Alaskan Salmon. It’s not salmon season just yet, but your fish counter will get frozen fresh weekly.

I always ask my fish monger what they have fresh that day and they usually have great recommendations. {Always befriend a fish monger and a butcher. You’ll go a long way in life.} My lucky day that they just received fresh halibut.

Halibut season starts the second week in March and runs through August. It can be a bit pricey during the early season, but I had an epiphany for a good meal and couldn’t say no to fresh Pacific caught halibut. Even if it was $29.99/pound.

I’ve used this glaze on a few different proteins. Try with salmon, chicken and shrimp. It’s all delicious and I thought this flaky white fish would be a perfect match.

Super easy and quick to get a healthy and flavorful meal on the table in under 30 minutes. Pretty basic ingredients that you most likely have on hand. You can find miso paste in all grocery stores, it varies from store to store where to track it down. I find mine in the tofu/fermented section in the produce department.

Serve with brown rice and sauteed bok choy for a healthy and whole meal.
