Earlier this evening, (it was 4am to be specific) I was searching the Supermarket in a rather hungry state and stumbled upon some miso sake marinaded salmon in the seafood section. After cooking it I found it quite deliteful.
Having eaten so much salmon in my life, I am rather sick of it plain, and this was a refreshing change. I did some searching online and found a few recipies for the marinade which can be used with other fish. (butterfish, salmon, buri, swordfish, halibut, cod, or orange roughy, and probally others.)
Miso Sake is a traditional Japanese Marinade, which is prepared as follows.
3/4 cup white miso
1/2 cup sugar
6 tablespoons mirin
Mirin is a different variety of sake, which is described here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mirin
Over a double boiler, combine miso, sugar, sake, and mirin and whisk until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let cool. Refrigerate for a few hours so that marinade is cold.
Marinade at least over night and for up to 48hrs.
The recipe above makes more marinade that you will need for a few servings, and what I have found online says it will hold up well in the fridge.
Just thought I would share. I also say a few places mention using it on Chicken, so that is worth a try as well. Especially for people who don't like fish.
