    Roasted Black Cod or Turbot with Bok Choy, Maple, and Miso

    Both black cod and turbot have incredibly tender, buttery texture and rich flavour that pairs perfectly with miso and maple. The main differences are that turbot is usually less expensive and it’s thinner, so it cooks a little quicker. Both are usually sustainable and come from Canada or the US.

    Tatsoi works, too

    You can use smaller bok choy (or tatsoi) for easier serving. They also have more nooks and crannies for the sweet-and-salty sauce. The recipe works with other greens, too—the tougher the better for withstanding the heat.

      Directions

      01

      Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C).

      02

      In medium bowl, combine miso, water, maple syrup, vinegar, soy sauce, and 2 tsp (10 mL) sesame oil. Add fish and stir to coat. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

      03

      Line 8 x 11 in (20 x 28 cm) baking or casserole dish with parchment paper. Spread with green onion pieces and bok choy, leaves turned inwards so they won’t burn as easily. Top with lime juice and remaining 1 tsp (5 mL) sesame oil.

      04

      Roast in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Stir greens and roast for 10 minutes more. Remove from oven and top with marinated fish and leftover marinade. Roast for 8 minutes, or until fish is almost flaking.
