Miso Marinated Black Cod (Gindara Saikyo Yaki)

When I used to work in a Japanese restaurant, this dish was a specialty.  The chef would only have one order for this and it was very expensive.  They usually prepare it using the collar of a very big fish.  It takes 21 days to marinate this dish.  When I saw cod fillets in the… Continue reading Miso Marinated Black Cod (Gindara Saikyo Yaki)

And it is always better the next day. During Lent, our Fridays are… Continue reading Lentil Soup (Shorbat Adas)

We are still trying to recover from the holiday eating.  I guess we try to (or purposely) forget our diets from the last few weeks of the year to the first week of the new year. An attempt to eat light was our objective in fixing this dish. Also due to a vehicle accident a couple… Continue reading Baked Fish with Sour Cream
