I was really surprised with how much flavor this little recipe had and it was so easy to make! I think this will be integrated into the normal repertoire!
Miso Glazed Cod
- 4 (6-ounce) cod fillets
- 1/4 cup miso paste
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- Toasted sesame seeds and scallions, for garnish, optional
Rinse fish fillets and pat dry with paper towels. Combine miso, brown sugar, sesame oil and rice vinegar and stir well until brown sugar is fully dissolved.
Brush about 2 tablespoons miso glaze on each fish fillet. Marinate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 1 hour. Place fish under broiler for 3 to 4 minutes, or until top is slightly charred and glaze has caramelized. Remove fish from oven and brush with remaining glaze. Lower oven to 375 degrees F. Cook an additional 5 to 6 minutes, until fish is flaky but not overcooked.
If desired, serve with toasted sesame seeds and scallions.
