- Preheat oven to 425 F OR preheat air-fryer to 400 F.
- Use a small pot OR the microwave to melt the butter with the garlic, mixing well, until garlic is fragrant. Remove from heat
- Meanwhile place miso in a small bowl. In a separate medium bowl, place the panko crumbs.
- Divide melted garlic butter evenly between the two bowls. Mix the crumbs well with its 2 Tb of garlic butter, until evenly coated. Use a fork to mash & mix the miso with its 2Tb of garlic butter, until a smooth paste is formed.
- Place the pieces of halibut, skin side down, on a parchment-lined baking tray. Divide the miso butter between all the fillets, coating the tops evenly. Now divide the buttered panko crumbs between all the miso-coated fillets, spreading the crumbs evenly and patting them into the miso.
- Oven method: Place the tray in the pre-heated oven and bake to about 10 to 12 minutes, until fish is just barely cooked through and the crumbs are crispy.
- Air-Fryer method: transfer the fish to the preheated basket of the airfyer, close and cook for about 7 to 8 minutes, until fish is just barely cooked through and the crumbs are crispy.
- Serve immediately, with steamed rice.
Full Meal Deal:
Add some cut green beans or asparagus, tossed with a little oil or melted butter, to either the tray for the oven or to the air-fryer basket. These green vegetables with cook in about the same time as it takes the fish to cook, giving a full meal in one.
Substitute 4 rockfish fillets, 120-150 g each, for the halibut in this recipe. Rockfish is usually thinner, so will take less time to cook.
