Shiitake Miso Gravy

This shiitake mushroom and miso gravy is full of delicious umami flavor. Pour this flavorful gravy on top of your favorite dishes; such as whole grains or traditional mashed potatoes. I used Miso Master Organic Traditional Red Miso for this recipe. However, if you want a lighter gravy in color and flavor use Miso Master Organic Mellow White Miso. Both the red or white miso will make for a delicious mushroom gravy!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat olive oil in small saucepan or deep fry pan.
  2. Saute onions, shiitake, parsley, oregano and thyme in olive oil for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add water or broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low simmer, cover and cook for 10 minutes. 
  4. Add dissolved kuzu and increase heat a little to help thicken to desired consistency. You may need a little more kuzu as it can be a little difficult to measure. (See notes below)
  5. Once thickened, reduce heat to a low simmer (below boiling point) and add dissolved miso. Adjust to taste. 

Notes

*KUZU: To make it easier to measure the Emperor’s Kitchen Organic Kuzu, I shake the jar a little to break up the large clumps. You can also use the back of a spoon or a suribachi to break up the kuzu. Add just enough cool water to dissolve into a thick, yet pourable paste. 

MISO: To dissolve miso, place in a small bowl adding enough warm water to create a smooth texture. 

THICKENER ALTERNATIVES
You can substitute Kuzu with organic corn starch or arrowroot powder. 

VARIATION
ASIAN FLAVORED GRAVY

Add a tasty Asian flavor to this recipe that’s absolutely delicious on rice, substitute Emperor’s Kitchen Organic Toasted Sesame Oil for the olive oil.

ITALIAN FLAVORED GRAVY
Add some Emperor’s Kitchen Organic Chopped Garlic along with shiitake, onions and seasonings.

Nobu’s Miso Marinated Cod

Chef Nobu's Miso Marinated Black Cod with Miso Master Organic Mellow White Miso

This recipe is a classic Japanese fish preparation, made famous by the chef Nobu Matsuhisa, and altered only to avoid boiling the miso. It’s a popular recipe for a reason: marinated for several days in the salty-sweet miso marinade, black cod becomes silky, deeply seasoned and completely irresistible.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Two to three days beforehand, make the miso marinade and marinate the fish. Bring the sake and mirin to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Boil for 20 seconds to evaporate the alcohol. Add the sugar, whisking constantly to ensure that the sugar doesn’t burn on the bottom of the pan. Remove from the heat, add the miso paste and whisk. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Pat the black cod fillets thoroughly dry with paper towels. Slather the fish with the miso marinade and place in a non-reactive dish or bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Leave to marinate in refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.
  3. To cook the fish: Preheat oven to 400°F. Preheat a grill or broiler. Lightly wipe off any excess miso clinging to the fillets but don’t rinse it off. Place the fish skin-side-up on the grill, or in a broiler pan, and grill or broil until the surface of the fish browns and blackens in spots, about 3 minutes. Flip and grill or broil until the other side is browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to the oven and bake for 5 to 10 minutes, until fish is opaque and flakes easily. Top with any remaining miso marinade if desired, garnish, and serve.
