What ingredients are used to make tilapia with miso butter?
- Green Beans
- White Miso Paste
What is miso and what does it taste like?
- Miso is a really nice, all-purpose seasoning (kind of like a bullion.) It can be used for marinades, dressings, soups and sauces.
- Miso paste can be found at most local grocery stores in the Asian section, or online and is a really nice all-purpose
To get meals on the table even quicker at dinnertime, I use frozen green beans and pre-cooked rice. That way, all I have to do is steam the green beans in the microwave and warm the 90 second rice.
Of course, you can used fresh or canned green beans if you prefer or switch up your vegetable. Broccoli would be great with this dish too. For the starch, use your favorite rice or amp up the protein of the dish by using quinoa.
This recipe is for 2 tilapia fillets, but you can adjust for whatever serving size makes sense for you. The simple ratio for this recipe is below:
- 1 tilapia fillet – 1 tablespoon butter – 1 teaspoon miso paste

Servings: 2 fillets
- 2 tilapia fillets
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons white miso paste
- 1 cup green beans french style
- 1 cup white rice cooked
- salt to taste
- In a small bowl melt butter in the microwave (usually 30 seconds for me). Whisk in miso paste until mixed.
- In a nonstick pan over medium-high heat add 1/2 of the butter/miso mixture and the tilapia fillets. Cook 6-8 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the tilapia fillets are coked through and browned on both sides. Note: don't flip the fish more than once, otherwise it will fall apart.
- Sprinkle tilapia with salt while it's cooking if it's desire (I usually just add a pinch, but it's fine without it if using salted butter.)
- Cook green beans and rice (I use frozen green beans which can be steamed/cooked in the microwave and 90 second rice).
- Divide rice and beans on plates, top with tilapia fillet, and then drizzle/spoon remaining butter/miso mixture onto the tilapia.
