Grilled King Fish with Miso Ginger Marinade

Grilled King Fish with Miso Ginger MarinadeBelieve it or not, the flavor of kingfish is unmatched. It can either be prepared in a hot and spicy curry or can be grilled with different types of marinades. We're going to try the latter option for making today's kingfish recipe. The real flavor comes with the miso paste we've used for the marinade. It is primary flavoring agent and gives a unique taste to this fish recipe. For best results, use a charcoal grill and serve hot. If miso is not available, you can use white soya beans blended in a smooth paste. Before grilling the fish, make sure it is kept in the marinade for at least 1 hour. Leftovers of this delicious recipe can be included in a spicy gravy and can be served in curried form with fried or boiled rice preparation.
