CODFISH miso soup recipe

Do you like codfish?
I think a lot of people in the world love fish and chips. haha
I know crispy deep-fried codfish is the best!

Although some deep-fried dish is very popular, codfish is more likely to used for simmered or pot dish in Japan.
I remember my mom often put codfish into hot pot: a big Japanese stew. Codfish become nicely soft in simple soy sauce soup and so delicious!

Even though I used many kind of fish cake for making miso soup so far, using fish is only second time…
Let’s see if white fish is going to be great with miso paste.

Miso paste always makes ingredients even more delicious, and codfish is no exception.
Soft and nice codfish in the soup matches very well with sweet Chinese cabbage.
