Cooking with Yuzu

I am growing Yuzu here and need some help. The Yuzu is supposed to be very valued in oriental cooking. One of the recipes I found was for scallops (or shrimp) cooked in the Yuzu shell with miso and mirin. I got the miso in Columbia and tried this recipe twice. I followed the instructions carefully. The result was a very salty sauce in which the scallops were cooked. "Very" might be too tame a word for how salty the result was. I was wondering if anyone out there has cooked seafood with Yuzu and can give me some guidance. (Cooking Yuzu cakes produces a very good, citrus flavored cake and the dried rind is great for winter tea.)

I'm not that familiar with cooking with yuzu, but wouldn't you just be able to use it in place of lemons and/or limes for cooking, marinades and other applications? Depending on the acidity and taste of the yuzu fruit, I would use it according taste. As for your recipe, you can try putting the miso in sparingly because it is quite salty in large quantities.

I found a few recipes on foodnetwork.
