// Black Cod w/Miso //

My boss recommended this recipe to me awhile back. I left out the sake and used regular cod b/c they didn't have any at the market that I happened to be shopping in that day. The end result came out a lil sweeter than I would've liked, so DEF try and use all ingredients listed in the recipe for the best results. This is from Chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa. On the side I made miso soup and used soba noodles instead of rice. My boss eats it pretty much by itself b/c he loves it so ninja.

// Lemon-Garlic Broiled Halibut //

I literally just finished eating this. Soooo buttery delicious! Very simple, are most fish recipes. I basically wanted to try something other than salmon for a fish dish. Catfish and tilapia aren't really on the top of my list, taste-wise, so thought I would try something new. I've only had halibut in restaurants, but after trying this recipe, I'm definitely going to be making it at home more often. I splurged and went to Whole Foods (8.99/fillet) instead of the usual Asian supermarket or farmer's market, so it might be cheaper elsewhere. Also, I substituted herbs de provence for the parsley used in the recipe b/c I found the recipe once I got home and didn't have all ingredients (after I had bought the fish). It only takes about 15 minutes to prep AND cook. After seeing what I was making for dinner, my friend remarked, "I like to cook things in lemon and garlic...just for the halibut!"
