|Steamed Miso Cod

I was bored of steaming it the Cantonese style….and wanted to do something different. After raiding the fridge, I decided on steam miso cod. I have done some research a couple of days back and it said that miso had a lot of health benefits.
Miso is a fermented soybean paste. After fermenting for a number of weeks to years, depending on variety, miso comes out with a texture similar to peanut butter, and a strong, salty flavor. It is used as a condiment, a flavoring agent and to make the popular miso soup.
To make it extra healthy, and to help flavour the dish, I threw in some seaweed, which yet again is very healthy. Seaweed tastes similar to leafy green vegetables, with an underlying salty, sea flavor.
This took all of 10 minutes to prepare, another 5 minutes to steam and it was done. Extremely easy…healthy dish.
