This miso sea bass is inspired by one of my favorite restaurant Nobu. It is so addicting and totally melts in your mouth.

If you want to eat something that is packed with flavor and light on your stomach then you need to try this miso cod! It is one of my favorite go to dish on the weekends and it’s really easy to prepare and cook. All you have to do is marinade and broil for about 10 minutes and that’s it! (doesn’t it sound too good to be true?!)

I personally only get sea bass once in a while since it does contain a higher amount of mercury, but unfortunately, it is such a delicacy in the US that they are currently overfished and if you want to help sea bass from going extinct(which is predicted to be in 5 years!), then try to consume it only once in a while as a treat, try a vegan version with my Vegan Curry Bowl with Miso Cod(made from tofu) recipe, or try haddock if you really cannot live without seafood and want something that has similar texture to sea bass.

Now let’s learn about the ingredients in this dish and some of the benefits that it provide and how it effect our body as well as things to look out for specific to your personal condition if it applies.
