Grilled Sea Bass with Miso and Shiitake

Coat it with miso paste infused with plenty of Shiitake and grill it to perfection for an aromatic finish. Check that the sea bass is cooked before coating it with the miso mixture. Cooking dried Shiitake covered in a pouch prevents its moisture from escaping and ensures a moist finish. The miso mixture called Tamamiso is a versatile seasoning that can be made in advance and kept for a long time. Add finely chopped Shiitake to add not only Umami taste but also a unique texture.
