Japanese seafood miso soup is usually cooked with red miso, which has stronger taste and saltier than ones cooked white miso. I personally prefer to use white miso for all kind of soup, not so authentic but well accepted by my family.
This hearty snapper miso soup (鯛の味噌汁 read as tai no misoshiru) is kind of one dish meal, great with a bowl of steamed rice and some pickles.
