Miso-Glazed Halibut

This is the glaze I used when I made dinner for my friend, Lauren. Feel free to play around with the proportions of miso, soy and honey. You will get a different meal each time, slightly saltier or slightly sweeter.

Makes 2 servings

2 tablespoons white miso, any variety

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons honey

1 pound of halibut fillets

Sesame seeds (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a small bowl, whisk together the miso, soy sauce and honey, adding more honey if it's too salty for your taste. Brush the halibut fillets with the miso glaze. Place the fish on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and bake for about 8 minutes or until white inside. When done, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve hot.
