"Saw this one pot veggie and fish recipe being made and thought it would fit in well with the low carb diet I need to follow though I would possible substitute another fish depending on the season and possibly cut back on the amount of butter but posting as they presented."

Step 1

Heat a large heavy-based frying pan over medium heat and add 50 grams butter, the onion and garlic and cook until the onion is lightly browned and then add the carrot, cabbage and shiitake mushrooms and stir to coat in the butter and season with salt and cook, stirring occasionally for about 3 minutes or until the cabbage is wilted.

Step 2

Mix the miso, sake and sugar together in a small bowl.

Step 3

Place the salmon on top of the vegetables and pour over the miso mixture and cover and steam for about 4 minutes or until the salmon is just cooked through

Step 4

To serve, add the remaining 10 grams butter to the pan, gently shake the pan until melted, then scatter the salmon with spring onion and bonito flakes.

Ten stars for this tasty dish! I used Napa cabbage, which I think is the same as wombok? It worked well. So, just personal preference I doubled the garlic and fresh shiitake mushrooms, added a splash of sherry along with the sake to up the flavor, and a couple good shakes of chili oil for some kick. The Asian store was out of bonito flakes, so I put a little bit of Hondashi bonito soup granules in with the veggies to give it that umami flavor. End result... wonderful! Served alongside jasmine rice and sprinkled with toasted black sesame seeds.

This is a tasty and healthy dish. Substituted the cabbage for escarole because the cabbages at the market were enormous. Though it was tasty, it needed some additional seasoning, so I added a couple of hot chili peppers and added additional sherry (substituted for the sake). Thank you, Pat, for sharing. Made it for FYC.
