Here's my tried and true fish recipe (from Sony Robles-Florendo's
_Signature Dishes of the Philippines_). I always make a big pot of it when
I'm serious about losing weight. You can adjust all the ingredients to
taste. If you leave out the miso it will be even lower in calories, but
not as yummy.

Saute garlic, onions, ginger, tomatoes. Dissolve miso in tomato juice (if
using canned) or a little water and add to saute. Add fish, allow to cook
for a couple of minutes. Set aside.

In a large sauce pan combine radish, fish sauce, lemon juice and water.
Boil for two minutes. Add fish mixture and peppers. Simmer 3-4 minutes or
until fish is done. If using mustard, add greens just before serving. (If
you use something sturdier like kale, add it with the peppers so it cooks
for a few minutes.)

Serve with steamed rice and pass the fish sauce for those who like more
sodium.
