I’ve since learned to enjoy seafood, and when this recipe from former "Top Chef" contestant Brian Malarkey was brought to my attention, I thought it would be a perfect recipe to share for the Lenten season. With a total prep and cooking time of 20 minutes, it’s a great light and healthy meal.
The fish used in Malarkey's recipe for Wild Alaska Sole with Shitake Mushroom Miso Broth is one of Seafood Watch’s good alternatives for seafood.
- 4 1/2 cups water
- 2-3 tablespoons white miso, to taste
- 1-2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari, to taste
- 8-ounce wild Alaska sole fillets sliced in 1⁄2-inch wide strips
- 8 shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and thinly sliced
- 1 carrot, julienned
- 1/2 cup julienned daikon radish
- 1-2 green onions, diagonally sliced
- 1/2 cup cilantro sprigs, for garnish
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Prep time: 20 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
In a medium sauce pot, heat water to boiling; whisk in miso and soy sauce. When liquid returns to a boil, add fish and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until sole is opaque throughout.
Divide and portion the vegetables and mushrooms into 4 large shallow bowls. Pour the hot broth over; garnish with cilantro leaves. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
