Miso Hungry

During my first trip to the new Natural Grocers I picked up a bottle of something I thought looked interesting: Miso Mayo. I like miso. I like mayo...why not?

"MISO MAYO is made with miso from Hawaii, and is hand-packed in small batches to ensure quality and freshness. The full-bodied umami flavor of MISO MAYO enhances and completes many different foods..."

Umami, indeed.

During an evening when I had nothing planned for dinner and the natives were getting restless, I inventoried the kitchen and found tortillas at the ready, fish sticks in the freezer, mixed herb salad in the crisper and Miso Mayo, ready to try. I baked up the fish sticks and made Fish Tacos for the family and they were a hit. I can't recall if I took photos of the finished dish or the process but it was really easy and certainly not the worst thing we could have eaten health-wise.

I squirted some Miso Mayo on a tortilla, placed 4 or so fish sticks on top of that and then added in a handful of herb salad and a squeeze of lime. Et voila! As I recall, the whole family gave this dish a "thumbs up".  We also used a little chipotle sour cream to kick it up a notch. Yum!  


  1. Never heard of miso mayonnaise! Interesting! I'm vegan, but I might try mixing in a bit of miso (which I love) in some Vegannaise. A condiment I love making and putting on veggie burgers or with roasted potatoes is Vegannaise with a dash of chipotle and minced garlic. Boy howdy, that's good. (Your chipotle sour cream sounds similar.)

  2. Yum, Annie, your condiment sounds divine. The chipotle sour cream we have become addicted to is actually store bought, Breakstone (Kraft) brand for something like$1.49. Do you make your veggie burgers from scratch? I have a recipe from the old LoveLight Bakery that I am ready to try. My family liked the last batch I made but haven't requested them again. I will have to try that condiment sometime. The miso mayo comes in a spicy red pepper and garlic/dill too. Nice to hear from you!


I would love to hear back from my readership (all 2 of you) so please don't be afraid to say "hi" or comment!
