fish with miso & mushroom sauce

Here's an easy 30-minute meal. Easy to prep, easy to cook. This dish will make you want to eat more rice! It's miso base, but got a nice kick with oyster sauce and sugar. Enjoy! 


White fish (e.g. Tilapia) - 1 fillet (**see TIPS)
Salt & pepper for marinade
Shiitake mushroom - 3 medium (sliced)

[Miso sauce]
Miso - 2 TBS
Water - 1/4 cup
Sugar - 2 tsp
Oyster sauce - 2 tsp

Green onion - 1 stalk (chopped)


  1. Cut the fish into 2 inch chunks. Rub it lightly with salt & pepper. Set it aside.
  2. Soak the dried shiitake mushrooms and slice thinly when softened. 
  3. Mix the miso sauce well. 
  4. Chop green onion. 


  1. In a wok or frying pan, heat 1 TBS of oil. When it's hot, fry fish fillet - 1 minute on each side. 
  2. Add mushroom and miso sauce mix. Cover and let it cook for 3 minutes. 
  3. Uncover and turn the fish so the sauce will be well integrated (**see TIPS). Cook under low-medium heat until the sauce thickens. If it's too thick or too salty, add water (1TBS at a time).


  1.  Sprinkle chopped green onion on top and serve with warm rice. 


  • White fish -- Costco sells both frozen kind and fresh kind. Fresh ones seem to be thicker and bigger than the frozen ones. Make sure the amount of fish used will be at least 3 inch by 5 inch and 1/3 inch thick. 
  • If the sauce is too salty, cook more fish on another pan and add them in.
  • Fish is easily broken into pieces, so turn gently.
