This simple glaze combines salty and savory miso paste with sweet maple syrup. The rice vinegar marries the two, and a few drops of hot sauce are all you need to complete this incredibly easy, yet sophisticated dish.

Directions

  1. Place oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

Would not make this again. There was not enough flavour for the time and mess. The pan was very difficult to clean and the oven now needs cleaning as well.

This sauce was actually pretty good, but too sweet for my taste, so I removed a star. Next time I will reduce the maple syrup to a teaspoon or so. Remember that the seasoned rice vinegar is also sweet. Instead of following these complicated instructions, I just poured the sauce over the fish, no marinating, & baked it in the toaste oven for 14 min or so. Maybe it didn't have the glazed effect but it didn't mess up my kitchen and it was easy.

This was great! Though, we Cedar plank grilled it instead.
