This miso-based marinade makes an amazing glaze for grilled cod. Pair with grilled scallions, drizzled with low-sodium soy sauce and sesame oil for a complete meal. If you don’t have a fish basket, line an area of your grill with foil to prevent the fish from sticking. Or broil the fish instead. Cod makes an excellent choice for grilling. When the fish begins to flake and turn opaque, it's time to flip it. Use a wider spatula when turning the fish to help prevent the fish from flaking apart when turning. Serve this dish with roasted carrots or broccoli.


White miso

3 Tbsp

Dark brown sugar

1½ Tbsp


1 Tbsp


½ fl oz, (1 Tbsp)

Uncooked Atlantic cod

20 oz, fillets, skin removed

Cooking spray

1 spray(s)

Uncooked scallion(s)

2 Tbsp, chopped


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together miso, sugar, sake and mirin; spread over cod. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 1 day.
  2. Off heat, coat a grill or grill pan with cooking spray. Preheat to medium heat.
  3. Remove cod from marinade (reserve marinade); place in a fish grilling basket and grill fish, flipping once, until cod is opaque and flakes easily with a fork, about 5 to 7 minutes per side (brush cod with remaining marinade half-way through grilling to create a thicker glaze). Serve garnished with scallions.
  4. Serving size: 4 oz cod
