Miso-Glazed Trout


    Miso-Glazed Trout

    Infused with a rich Asian flavour, trout contains a boatload of heart-chummy omega-3 fats. Wild salmon or arctic char would also work well. Try serving with soba noodles.


    4 rainbow or steelhead trout filets
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) rice vinegar
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) white miso
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) reduced-sodium soy sauce
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) ginger, grated
    2 tsp (10 mL) sesame oil
    1/2 tsp (2 mL) red chili flakes
    2 sheets nori, sliced into 1/2 in (1.25 cm) strips
    Black sesame seeds (optional)

    Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C).

    Rinse trout filets and pat dry with paper towel. In bowl, whisk together rice vinegar, miso, soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil, and chili flakes.

    Place trout on 4 pieces of parchment paper; brush with miso mixture, and top each with an equal amount of nori slices. Place fish packets on baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes before opening and garnish with sesame seeds if desired.

    Serves 4.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
