Miso-Marinated Black Cod

There are many reasons to love black cod — it is sustainably fished, full of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and wonderfully buttery when cooked. This is one of the easiest recipes out there for the best taste!

  • 1/4 cup sake
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • tablespoons white miso paste
  • tablespoons sugar (if you need the sweetness) I don't use the sugar myself
  • black cod fillets, about 1/2 pound each

Make the four-ingredient miso marinade and then marinate the fish for 24 hours, sealed in a covered container in the fridge. Cooking is quick — just a quick sear on the stovetop and then a few minutes in the oven. This makes a very light yet filling meal.
