Miso Roasted Fish with Greens


This Miso Roasted Fish was a surprising run away winner with the whole family the night I made it so I will be doing it again and again!  It’s super simple to make and big on taste which is exactly how I like my dinners to be, how about you? It’s also really quick which makes it even more appealing and healthy so tick, tick, tick for all of those things!

I have invested in a tub of miso paste that I got from a health food shop (also found in Asian Supermarkets) you only need a little bit at a time and it lasts for ages so it’s worth investing in some I think.  It’s great to add to noodles and the like for afternoon tea or snacks to give some taste without all the nasties that come in flavouring packets.

I got the brown rice noodles from a health food shop but whatever rice or noodles take your fancy would go well with this or you don’t need any at all, up to you.

Miso Roasted Fish with Greens


  • 1Tbsp miso paste
  • 1 Tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 50 ml grapeseed oil
  • 4 skinless white fish fillets (I used a locally caught blue salmon)
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced (for sprinkling)
  • 2 tbsp roasted sesame seeds (for sprinkling)
  • For the Greens
  • 1 head of broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1 zucchini, peeled into strips using a vegetable peeler
  • 2 cups of kale, spinach or baby spinach whatever you have and whatever you like
  • 1 spring onion, finely sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Brown rice noodles or rice to go with it


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees & line a baking tray with baking paper
  2. In a jug or small bowl combine the miso paste, tamari, ginger, vinegar and half the oil until smooth, set aside
  3. Cook the noodles or rice as per packet instructions
  4. Heat the remaining oil in a fry pan and add the fish to brown on each side (a couple of minutes) then transfer to prepared baking tray. Using a brush coat the fish with the miso mixture (you won't need all of it and I only put a very thin layer on the girls fish) then roast in the oven for 4 - 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile in the same fry pan that you cooked the fish add the greens with some of the remaining miso mixture, cook for a few minutes then add the garlic and stir through
  6. to serve plate up the noodles, top with the fish and add the greens, sprinkle over the spring onions and sesame seeds and drizzle any extra miso mixture for extra taste if you like
  7. Enjoy
