Man was i missing all these miso possibilities…
Well now it’s time to catch up!
Tonight is a quick miso dinner of mussels, with the rest of ingredients right from the japanese pantry: sake, ginger, scallions, garlic and watercress. Ok, there were olive oil and butter involved too. Oh and some grilled triple olive ciabatta. A modern japanese pantry?.. Anyway the outcome was still delicious, light and tasty… And it involved miso!

Nice vegetarian dinner – quick but full of flavor. Steamed and peeled fingerlings, small whole shiitake mushrooms caps and scallion whites tossed with melted butter, white miso and mirin (Eden brand that doesn’t have any sugar in it).
Roasted for 10 mins in 425F convection. Sprinkled with scallion greens and cilantro before serving.
Very nice, and of course goes well with some good hoppy IPA.

Haven’t had a chance to explore all the great restaurants of Vancouver but our dinner at Zakkuchi left me craving for japanese food, big time.
That’s why the first dinner i cooked after coming back home had all to do with miso, soy sauce, sesame oil and edamame.
And chicken wings… Now i couldn’t find any recipe for some miso marinade so improvised – white and red miso, with some sake. In the fridge for several ours. Then added just a bit (about tsps) of dark soy sauce and sesame oil, 1/4 cup of scallions oil (made it for the side of steamed eggplants) and about 1/3 cup of mixed black and regular sesame seeds. 20mins turning once in 400F convection oven. OMG!

On the side – steamed eggplant with scallions oil and black vinegar; edamame pods steamed and tossed with meyer lemon vinaigrette (zest and all).
