Why You’ll Love Miso Black Cod Recipe

The marinade in this recipe makes this black cod so rich and sweet, which is absolutely delicious! This recipe is extremely flavorful and flaky, you are gonna love it… Trust me🔥 The marinade in this recipe makes the seabass develop a very complex and sweet flavor, when broiled it gets caramelized and it truly is perfection. Yes, I know the marinating takes some time, but it is 100% worth it.

How To Prepare Miso Black Cod Recipe

🔥 First, boil the mirin and sake for 3 minutes.

🥘 Secondly, add in sugar and miso. Then, cook for a couple minutes without boiling. Let it cool.

🐠 Pour it all over your fish, cover it VERY tightly and marinate for 24-48 hours in fridge.

🌟 Lastly, broil it (I did 7 minutes) but every oven is different so keep an eye out.

Substitutions and Variations

  1. You can substitute the black cod for salmon or chilean seabass.
  2. You can make this vegetarian by using mushrooms or eggplant.

Chef Nadia’s Tip

Marinate for a full day to develop a better flavor. If you can’t do a minimum of 4 hours.
