Are you in the mood for a dose of healthy Japanese cooking? This recipe features cod steak baked with a topping of miso-mayo sauce. I'm a big fan of Atlantic cod - the flesh is softer than the pacific variety and the fish themselves tend to be bigger meaning its easier to get nicely sized steaks (or large fillets, if you will). Atlantic cod is also a little sweeter so it makes a great combination with the rich savoury flavours of the miso-mayo topping. Even better, this dish is ready in 30 mins - (miso mayo sauce can be made in 1 minute!) - serve on a bed of steamed vegetables and you've got a really tasty and substantial lunch or dinner brimming with good, healthy things.

Happy cooking! Kurumi XXXX.
