  • 1/4 cup yellow or white miso
  • 1 tbsp Korean chili paste
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 3 (6 oz portions) Popsie’s Alaska Sablefish (aka Black Cod), cut in 2 oz. portions
  • 1 small avocado, pitted, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped English cucumber
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced radish halves
  • 1/2 cup pickled ginger, chopped

  • 8 medium to large butter lettuce leaves, or smaller iceberg lettuce leaves, or smaller napa cabbage leaves
  • 1 to 1-1/4 cups cooked sushi rice or quinoa

    Step 1: Prepare fish

    • Preheat oven to 450F. Blend miso, chili paste and honey; spread onto Alaska Sablefish portions. Place portions on a spray-coated, foil-lined baking sheet. Roast for 5 to 7 minutes, cooking just until fish is opaque throughout, and fish is a deep golden brown; cool slightly.

    • In a mixing bowl, combine avocado, rice or quinoa, cucumber, radishes and ginger; pour on dressing. Toss to coat. 

    Step 3: To serve

    • Place about 1/3 cup vegetable/rice mixture into each lettuce leaf. Top with a Sablefish portion. Sprinkle on 1 tablespoon cilantro.
