This recipe for one can be multiplied easily. Bok choy is a healthy vegetable common in Japanese cooking, and Shaoxing cooking wine (or mirin) adds the authentic flavor to this healthy dish.

The Japanese style of preparing fish by marinating it in a mixture of miso, mirin and sake, then briefly broiling it, is high in flavor but relatively low in fat. Black cod is an incredibly sweet and buttery fish, but you can substitute white sea bass or Pacific halibut if you can't find it. You can pair the fish with Joey Altman's Sesame Spinach recipe (or a simpler one, below).

This dish includes just four ingredients and is done in less than 15 minutes. It's also a more exciting preparation than simply boiling the spinach (and far healthier than creaming it). Who said cooking Japanese at home wasn't easy?
