Great flavors! I like this different-tasting fish for dinner guests, because it's familiar enough but slightly exotic. Prep timer is marinating time. The original recipe called for 1 cup of miso, but that seemed like a lot, especially since it's scraped off before cooking. See what you think.


  1. Combine the miso, sake, mirin and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 2 minutes, stirring. Cool completely.
  2. Spread some of the miso marinade in a glass baking dish. Add the halibut fillets, then spread with remaining marinade. Refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours.
  3. Scrape the marinade from the fish and pat dry. Brush with the oil and grill for about 8 minutes until fish flakes easily.

We liked this fish. I agree that the lower amount of miso is plenty. We didn't use the oil before grilling, and it worked fine - it didn't stick.
