As World of Cruising TV hits screens, no doubt the foodies among
you will be keen to recreate some of the chefs’ recipes – like this
miso-glazed seabass served with stir-fried vegetables and rice

Tune in to World of Cruising TV soon to watch a Michelin star chef cook up a feast on set, bringing to life favourite cruise line recipes in our bespoke studio in Palma on the Spanish island of Mallorca.

Marc Fosh, the Michelin-starred chef behind the eponymous restaurant in Palma’s 17th century Hotel Convent de la Missió, serves miso-glazed seabass with vegetables and rice from Red Ginger, the pan-Asian restaurant that’s open for dinner aboard Oceania Cruises’ Marina, Riviera, Sirena and Vista ships.

Marc says: “Miso is a fermented soya bean paste and it is also one of the world’s most delicious and versatile foods. What’s more, centuries of Japanese folklore and recent scientific studies have shown that miso is a concentrated source of essential nutrients and a potent medicine.

“It’s fantastic in soups and stews and makes a great glaze for roasted salmon or chicken and this deliciously simple seabass recipe from Red Ginger.”
