Miso butter is good, but miso butter with roasted nori, sesame and ginger is better. It works wonders with pan-fried snapper here, but serve it with any kind of fish, or on steak or roasted vegetables.


Nori-miso butter


1.For nori-miso butter, gently toast nori sheets over an open flame until crisp (5-10 seconds). Cool briefly (1-2 minutes), then tear into pieces and transfer to a food processor. Process until finely chopped (1-2 minutes), then combine with remaining ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat and heat gently to melt butter. Keep warm.
2.Cook broccolini in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until tender (2-3 minutes). Drain, toss with sesame oil and season to taste.
3.Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Pat snapper dry with paper towels, then drizzle with grapeseed oil and season to taste. Add to pan skin side-down, top with a piece of baking paper, weight with a heavy pan, and fry until skin is crisp (2 minutes). Turn over and fry until snapper is just cooked through (1-2 minutes). Divide broccolini and snapper among plates, spoon over nori-miso butter, top with spring onion and serve with lemon wedges.
