This fish melts in your mouth and the sauce is a savory, decadent compliment to the dish and keeps the fish moist and bursting with rich, warm umami flavors. Plus it only takes a few minutes to put together thanks to the few ingredients. Serve it with simple stir fried vegetables or cauliflower stir fried Kimchi. ⁠

In a small bowl, combine the miso, butter, 1 Tbsp of the soy sauce and whisk until creamy.

Heat a pan large enough to not crowd the fish, over medium high heat, add the oil when the pan is hot.

Spread 1/2 the miso butter mixture on both sides of the fish and sprinkle with kosher salt and a couple of cranks of freshly ground pepper.

Place the fish in the hot pan with oil and cook over medium high. Cook the fish for 4-5 minutes and until the fish is golden brown. Flip the fish snd cook for 3 more minutes.

Remove the fish and place on a platter. Be careful not to over cook the fish as it will continue to cook.
