How to make Lunch Box Love
I packed these for my colleagues and they absolutely love it!
Preheat oven 200C.
In a saucepan, add mirin, miso and sake. Bring to boil and let it simmer for 5 mins.
Baste fish with miso mixture and allow it to marinate for at least 15mins. The longer the better. Best overnight.
In a hot pan, melt a knob of butter and sear fish 4 mins a side.
Finish it off in the oven for 5 mins.
Saute garlic and shallots in butter until golden brown. Add mushrooms and saute for 5 mins. Add mirin, soy and pepper. Reduce until sauce consistency. Discard garlic.
Poach daikon in boiling chicken stock for 15 mins. Drain, reserving some stock. Puree daikon and put it back in a saucepan on low heat. Add butter and milk. Stir for 5mins until most liquid have evaporated. Season.
