Northwood Nutrition BLOG
Hi! My name is Korrin and I'm a Dietitian and self proclaimed foodie.
I love to cook all kinds of food. I love to work with all kinds of people.
On my blog, I strive to share positive, inspiring stories & nutrition information. In addition to some real life events mixed in. Welcome!
Where in the world did April go?! It seems like I blinked and it was gone! Hard to believe we are well into May and spring is in full force all around us, but I am welcoming the warm weather, sunshine and outside time playing with the kids. For those of you following my private social media accounts, you already know that my daughter is obsessed with her new 'big girl bike' and has spent almost every waking moment on it. Normally the first thing on her mind in the morning is her hungry tummy (breakfast is definitely her favorite meal of the day, just like her dad) but recently, she has been getting dressed and going to the door to put on her helmet and start pedaling! It has been so much fun to see the joy on her face when she rides around! It brings me back to the days when I was a kid and would ride my bike for hours.
My son is also loving outside time. He is 18 months old today and it seems as though he is finally gaining some independence and confidence. His favorite thing is to put on his overalls and boots and toddle right over to the last mud puddle in the driveway to squish and stomp in the gooey mud. While pulling weeds or working in the yard, I'll look over and see him sitting in the grass amongst the dandelions, simply watching the bees travel from flower to flower. My hubs has this great picture of him sitting at the edge of the forest right at the base of the trees just looking out into the woods. This age is for sure challenging, but it is so much fun to watch him discover the world around him.
Anyway, enough about my family! I'm sure most of you visited this space for a recipe! When my friend visited us a few weeks ago, she asked what food she could pick up to create some epic meals over the weekend. My first thought was all.the.seafood (!!) since I have found that I am eating a bit less seafood than I did in the Seattle area. She brought with her the best little clams, tender black cod and a beautiful salmon fillet. We had clams with bacon, shallots, sake (parsley would have made it even better!) and crusty french bread the first night. The second meal we shared was an amazing fillet of black cod with a miso glaze, roasted asparagus and a crunchy salad on the side and it was absolutely amazing, so I wanted to share the recipe with you all!

***A great app to use is Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch to find the most sustainably caught and the safest seafood at the market. ***
1. Combine all liquid ingredients in tupperware and coat the fish with the sauce. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2-6 hours prior to cooking.
2. Preheat the broiler.
3. Place the marinated fillet on a sheet pan on the second to closest rack from the broiler. Cook for 10-15 minutes until fish is flaky, but not over cooked. (Depends on the thickness of your fillet)
4. While the fish is cooking, pour all of the marinade ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Reduce the mixture to medium low after it has simmered for five minutes and reduce by about 1/3 or until the mixture evenly coats the back of a spoon and is a sauce like consistency.
5. Remove the fish from the broiler and coat with the sauce according to your taste preferences. Serve immediately.
Recipe makes four, 6oz portions of fish.
Until next time, eat well!!
Questions for comments: What fish do you usually cook at home? Do you typically look at how the fish was harvested? What is your favorite seafood? Any amazing dishes that you have tried recently at a restaurant?
