From the Test Kitchen

We’re using two incredibly flavorful ingredients to make a glaze for roasted cod: red miso paste and yuzu juice. As miso ages, its color changes from white to red—and its flavor becomes distinctly rich in umami. Yuzu juice, from the East Asian yuzu fruit, is tangy and a little sweet, like a cross between grapefruit and mandarin orange. Paired with earthy, black rice and water spinach (a traditional, Asian leafy green related to the morning glory), these ingredients strike a delicious balance.
