Whether you love black cod, salmon or halibut best, try your favorite in this wonderfully decadent dish adapted from the classic Japanese preparation popularized by chef Nobu Matsuhisa. I've loved this dish for years, enjoying it in many seafood restaurants, but never tried my hand at it until now. It just seemed so fancy! But when we created our new Asian Tea Rub I knew it would be a perfect flavor match, and it is. The umami-goodness of the miso marinade plays perfectly with the smoky tea and subtle spices. Serve this dish with a simple side of rice and vegetables for an impressive and delicious meal.Check this out! >>
Once upon a rainy day, our morning cup of Lapsang Souchong inspired us to feature the tea as the key ingredient of a remarkable new blend... and thus the tea rub was born. This mix, taking its cues from East Asian fare, features vibrant citrus top notes and a boldly flavored body, which takes on the intense smokiness of the Lapsang tea.
Of course, we couldn't make just one. Be sure to check out our Middle Eastern Tea Rub as well!Find out more >>
