Miso Grilled Hake with Yakisoba

  • Sumo

Weeks ago, I received a bag of ingredients from New Zealand Trade Enterprises and assigned with special task. Yep, the challenge is back. I am supposed to use the ingredients and transform them into something. I have to say, I am not a good cook and will always go for the quickest and simplest but yummy dishes (my bento rule no. 1, haha!). So, this round, it is going to be something simple and nice; quick and one can easily just perform it at home, or … prepare it for bento too!


Miso Grilled Hake with Yakisoba

Miso grilled Hake
What you need are:
1 slab of Hake steak (or cod fish)
1 tbs of miso paste (depends on the saltiness level of your miso paste)
1 tbs of sake (omitted coz the miso paste I used is infused with sake)
1 tbs of mirin
1 tbs of soy sauce
1.5 tsp brown sugar



What you need to do:
1. Mix miso paste, sake, mirin, soy sauce and sugar in one bowl.
2. Marinate the slab of hake for 30 mins.
3. Preheat the oven to 180 degree and bake for about 15 – 20 minutes or until the fish is cooked.

What you need are:
Red Capsicum
Shimeji Mushroom
Cloves of Garlic
Garlic infused olive oil
Yakisoba sauce (my version was using Unagi Sauce)
Salt and ground black pepper
Dried seaweed powder (optional)


What you need to do:
1. Boiled the soba for 5 mins or until cooked. Run them under iced cold water.
2. In the pan, heat up the garlic infused olive oil and the cloves of sliced garlic. Add in sliced capsicum and carrots. About half cooked, add in the shimeji mushroom and continue to stir-fry the vegetables.
3. Add the soba. Mix all the ingredients together and start to season with a little of salt, black pepper and Yakisoba sauce.
4. Finally sprinkle with dried seaweed powder.


For marinating the fish, the longer you marinate it, the saltier it will be. Marinade time depends on the size of the fish. My hake was around 200g and I marinated it for 30 minutes. It is not necessary to use just cod; you can always opt for salmon or any other fish.

For the yakisoba, adjust the seasoning according to your amount of ingredients and preferences. I used Unagi Sauce because I found it sitting in the fridge.

Have fun in cooking!
