Nobu’s Miso Black Cod

So I did a little experiment. I tried the recipe on black cod ($$$) and on regular cod.

GET THE BLACK COD.

Trust me. It’s worth it. Cut the recipe in half if you don’t want to buy $30 worth of fish to feed two. It’s pretty amazing, so don’t make any for your friends if you’re cheap. Ha.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 to 1.5 lb black cod filets
  • 1/4 cup sake
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 4 tbs white miso paste
  • 3 tbs white granulated sugar

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a small saucepan over high heat, bring mirin and sake to a boil. Let the alcohol evaporate for 15 seconds. Reduce heat to medium.
  2. Dissolve miso, bit by bit, into the liquid. Stir continuously.
  3. Increase heat to high. Stir in sugar until also completely dissolved. Remove from heat immediately and let it cool to room temperature.
  4. Pat cod filets dry. Marinate in miso mixture, covered, inĀ refrigeratorĀ for 2 days.
  5. Important: Scrape miso off cod! It’s salty stuff. And it’s already been marinating for a few days. You don’t need an extra coating of it. Trust me.
  6. Line baking pan with aluminum foil. Arrange cod evenly across pan. BROIL for 5 minutes or so or until just begins to brown. Bake at 400F for 10 minutes until cod cooked through.
