6 Minute Toaster Oven White Fish with Miso Glaze


I have discovered a wonderful new lunch/dinner idea that I had to share with all of you.  I remember reading awhile back that Rocco DiSpirito’s favorite dish to make at home was a piece of fish or chicken rubbed with homemade miso glaze and cooked in the toaster oven until the miso was slightly burned and delicious. 

I finally got around to trying it this idea in a fit of desperation as I tried to come up with something to do with the dover sole fillets sitting in my freezer.  (I bought a load of them at Costco before realizing that the fish was incredibly bland and fell apart whenever I tried to grill them.)   As I recall, Rocco suggests making a glaze with  combination of miso and orange marmalade.  As I had no marmalade on hand, I improvised, mixing up miso paste, agave nectar, ground ginger and a dab of chili paste, then rubbed the mixture on the fish.  I cranked up my toaster oven as high as it would go, then put the fish in (on a piece of foil for easy cleanup).  It took less than six minutes for the slices above, because they were so thin.  I served them over a bed of wilted spinach, and they were to die for.  Rocco was right…slightly burned miso really is yummy!  This was an incredibly easy, no fuss lunch for one.  Highly recommended.
