Halibut with Japanese Flavors


From EatingWell:  March/April 1993

Sweet miso, rice wine and soy sauce infuse halibut with a rich Asian flavor. Thin slices of nori and scallions are a pretty garnish. Make it a meal: Add Cold Soba Noodles and Cucumber Salad for a light summer supper.

4 servings | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes



  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare 4 parchment or foil papillotes (see Tip).
  2. Stir together miso paste, sugar, rice wine (or sherry) and soy sauce in a small bowl until smooth.
  3. Open the papillotes and place a piece of halibut in the center half of each opened paper heart. Brush the miso mixture over the halibut and top with seaweed and scallions. Seal the packages and place them on a baking sheet. Bake until the packages are puffed, 10 to 12 minutes. (You may open one package to check that the fish is opaque.) Transfer to plates; let each diner open his or her own package.
