As my memory fails me I realize that I can make a recipe or a meal, find it wonderful, and then completely forget what I had so enjoyed.  It becomes frustrating as I often wonder what to cook and rely too heavily on same old, same old.  So here goes.  This blog will serve to remind me.  It will also serve to inform those that care of what I’m cooking and how good it tastes.  I plan to focus on the successful recipes and meals. This is meant to be a reminder of what to repeat.

I bought a piece of Pacific Cod this morning.  I wanted to use some organic Soya and Oats Massawippi Miso that I bought at the health food store, A Votre Sante on Sherbrooke St. in the preparation.  Googling miso marinade for cod yielded several interesting recipes, all requiring hours of marinating. The inside label on the Massawippi Miso was for a pasta sauce that I figured would make a good fish topping.  I made a few changes, substituting olive oil for hazelnut butter, cod-fish for pasta, and this was the happy result:

  • 2 T Massawippi Oats Miso
  • 1 T balsamic vinegar
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 T hot water
  • 2 tomatoes diced
  • 2 T fresh ginger, finely chopped

The ingredients were mixed one by one then meant to be served cold to preserve enzymes and probiotics, but I couldn’t resist coating the fish for the last few minutes of cooking.  Before convection roasting the fish for 13 minutes at 420 degrees it was coated with 2 t of olive oil, a minced clove of garlic and some freshly ground pepper.

The sauce was finger licking good and tasted yummy coating the quinoa as well.  Did I mention my sense of relief that the recipe turned out?  Yep, jittery cook.
