A new favorite. Subbed white miso for red as its what we had on hand. Also made a side of corn. Came together SUPER quick. Definitely adding to regular rotation.

This meal is delicious! Perfect crunchy panko topping with great flavor. I've also made the paleo version, which is less crunchy but still delicious. It's also super easy to get this to the table. Great for a busy night.
