A classic Japanese dish, Miso Cod is a beautiful seafood dish you can pull off at home. Baked to perfection, this dish offers succulent flavours from the cod and a rich miso tang, served with garlic mushrooms and sprouts.

Preparation Time: 15min
Cooking Time: 30min

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan.
  2. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and add the sprouts. Cook for 5min until tender. Drain.
  3. In a bowl, mix the miso paste with the garlic and softened butter until combined. Take 1tbsp of this mix and put it aside to top the fish with.
