Sweet Miso-Butter Cod with Snap Peas

This recipe should seriously come with a warning.  Because you WILL lick your plate.  Unabashedly, with no remorse, and with absolute conviction.  The sauce is what the rivers in heaven must be filled with -- buttery, umami flavor.  Fresh cod goes for a swim, and comes out the other side RIDICULOUSLY amazing.  I mean, seriously, this dish is what dreams are made of.

It's a riff on a VERY famous dish at Nobu, but for 1/16 the cost.  Who says you can't get restaurant food at home?  Well, cook them this dish and they'll promptly change their tune!

But, remember, I did warn you.......it's addicting.

One rule....be sure to use the freshest cod available.  No frozen cod for this dish.  I tested with both, and the frozen, while still tasty, seriously couldn't compare to the fresh.

It's from Chrissy Teigen's new book, Cravings Hungry from More.......and the only change I made was also testing it with asparagus.  And they were just as yummy as the snap peas.
