Miso is a Japanese paste made from fermented soy beans, which may not sound hugely appetising, but once you've tried it you'll see how good it is. This salty and tangy paste is most commonly used in Japanese miso soup, but can be used to add a great burst of flavour to sauces, salad dressings and marinades. We've used miso to make a delicious butter that works beautifully with roast cod, but can also be served with vegetables, meats, or tofu.
