I saw Rachael Ray use this method of cooking fish with her Wasabi Broiled Black Cod and had to try it. You just mix wasabi paste (I used more than the recipe called for — it had a kick!) with mayonnaise, spread it on a thick white fish, and broil for 12 minutes. I love when just 3 ingredients can result in an amazing recipe. I used wild halibut and a reduced-fat olive oil mayo. For the kids, I mixed mayo with lemon juice instead of wasabi, and they gobbled it up. Using a broiling pan for fish is not something I have tried before, but it was cooked perfectly. Will definitely be making this again. Any suggestions on other flavors to go with the mayo topping? Maybe chipotle chili peppers?
I love this recipe! It seems simple and tasty.
I bet any herb based mayo will go well with the fish. I am thinking basil, cilantro, chive, dill..
Thanks Luciana! I love the idea of a basil mayo. With a fresh tomato salad and a glass of wine, it’s a perfect summer meal!
