Miso Glaze Cod

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4


Miso glaze:

• 6 tbsp (125 g) white (light) miso paste (shiro miso)

• 2 tbsp honey

• 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

• 2 tsp sesame oil


• 1½ cups (200 g) snap peas, strings removed (8-10 per parcel)

• 1 red bell pepper, julienned

•4 green onions, sliced•1 pkg (150 g) enoki mushrooms, trimmed

• Soy sauce, for seasoning

• 4 5-ounce (150 g) portions of cod, haddock or halibut

• Toasted sesame seeds

• Cooked short grain rice, for serving


1. Preheat the oven to 400oF (200oC). Cut four pieces of parchment paper to about 12 x 18 inches

(30 x 45 cm). Whisk miso, honey, lemon juice and sesame oil and set aside.

2. Divide the vegetables between the parchment pieces and sprinkle with soy sauce, then place a cod portion on top of each vegetable collection. Spread miso glaze on top. Sprinkle sesame seeds.

3. To create parcels, fold the paper over the fish. Twist parchment at the end to complete the seal. Place parcels onto two baking trays and bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until they inflate.

Heating up the parcels quickly, the LG ProBake Convection oven evenly distributes heat, so the fish and veggies heat quickly but don’t overcook, giving you more time to spend with friends or family, and not watching the oven.

4. To serve, spoon cooked rice onto plates or bowls and slide a parcel beside the rice.

Miso is a traditional Japanese seasoning made by fermenting soybeans with salt and kōji (known to botanists as the fungus Aspergillus oryzae). Miso is also made with rice, barley and other ingredients. It is a thick paste used for sauces and spreads and for  pickling vegetables or meats.
