A traditional Japanese recipe that’s a breeze to make. It's delicious served over rice, garnished with fresh cilantro.

Ingredients

Uncooked Pacific cod

1½ pound(s), four 6 oz black cod or regular cod fillets

Miso

¼ cup(s)

Dark brown sugar

2 tbsp(s)

Mirin

1 fl oz, about 2 tablespoons

Ginger root

1 tbsp(s), freshly grated

Dark sesame oil

1 tbsp(s), dark-variety

Rice wine vinegar

¼ cup(s)

Uncooked scallion(s)

¼ cup(s), sliced very thin (for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Place fish, skin-side down, in a broiler-proof pan.
  2. Place miso, sugar, mirin, ginger, oil and vinegar in a blender; blend until smooth. Pour glaze over cod and marinate in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour.
  3. Preheat broiler to high.
  4. Broil fish until topping turns golden brown and starts to caramelise, and fish is no longer translucent in middle, about 8 to 10 minutes. Serve garnished with scallions. Yields 1 fillet per serving.
