A site for sharing cooking, eating, and drinking experiences. Let's cook and share together! I hope that you will use this information and share your own cooking, eating, and drinking experiences. If you have a question or would just like to suggest something to try in the kitchen, I would be happy to experiment and report on the outcome. So please enjoy and participate in this simple culinary exchange. I plan to post every other week if not more.
Welcome to I Love to Cook
Cooking is something I have always enjoyed. I learned to cook at the apron strings of my mother and grandmother. The experience of cooking brings me both pleasure and peace of mind.

Miso - 1-2 cups
Soy Sauce - enough to solvate ~ 1/4 to 1/2 cup
Shallots - handful
Lemon Zest - zest of 1-2 lemons
When I made my version I used a little white wine as well
Mix miso, soy sauce, lemon zest, and shallots in a large bowl. Also white wine if you want.
This is a great marinade for chicken or fish.Be careful since the soy sauce is salty, you probably will not need additional salt.You should season to your own taste but taste the mixture before you add any additional salt components.
We used this on a sea bass and the results were fantastic.A little secret – if you plan to grill or broil, then add a small amount of sugar in the mixture.This will allow the fish or even the chicken to slightly blacken without burning any meat.It is actually the sugar that is forming a glaze/char which is nice and crunchy.
