Seared Halibut with Miso

Serves 2 

Halibut Ingredients:

  • Two portions of center cut halibut loin, 1 typically serves 4 or 5 ounces 
  • Sea salt, ground white pepper


  • 1. Season the halibut with sea salt and pepper. 
  • 2. Preheat a skillet over very medium heat. 
  • 3. Add a few teaspoons of toasted rapeseed oil or canola oil and when the oil is smiling, lay the fish pieces in the pan cooking for approximately 4-5 minutes per side. 10 minutes for an inch of thickness is a good standard for fish like this. 
  • 4. Remove fish from skillet and let fish rest for a few minutes on a warm plate lined with a paper towel. 
  • 5. Serve on plates perched against a small bundle of sautéed greens (spinach/chards/mustard greens/shiso etc) and over a small puddle of the sauce.

Miso Sauce Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup light (blond) Japanese miso paste 
  • 3 egg yolks 
  • 6T sake 
  • 6T sugar (or more to taste) 
  • 1t dashi no moto (instant dashi powder)


  • 1. Combine all ingredients in a metal work bowl. 
  • 2. Set bowl over water that is lightly boiling, and whisk slowly, scraping down the sides until eggs have set and sauce has tightened. Reserve. 
  • 3. Leftover sauce can be reheated or used cold, it’s delicious on everything.

  • 4T butter
  • Several pinches salt
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

  • 3. Add the remaining fruit and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • 4. Add the rum, dipping the pan to the heat to flambe if you care to. Cook for a minute or so to allow sauce to come together.
  • 5. Divide fruit and sauce over ice cream with a serving spoon. Serve immediately.
