Miso glazed cod

Prep Time:


Cook Time:


6 Servings


About the Recipe


  • 6 (170g) black cod fillets, or regular cod fillets

  • 80ml low-sodium blond or white miso

  • 50g dark brown sugar

  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil

  • 2 tbsp mirin (Japanese cooking wine)

  • Toasted sesame seeds and green onions, for garnish, optional


Step 1

Rinse fish fillets and pat dry with kitchen paper. Combine miso, brown sugar, sesame oil and mirin and stir well until brown sugar is fully dissolved.

Step 2

Brush about two tablespoons miso glaze on each fish fillet. Marinate for at least 30 minutes, or up to one hour. Place fish under grill for 3 to 4 minutes, or until top is slightly charred and glaze has caramelised.

Step 3

Remove fish from oven and brush with remaining glaze. Lower oven to 190°C/ gas mark 5. Cook for an additional 5 to 6 minutes, until fish is flaky but not overcooked.
