Black Cod Teriyaki
Briefly bathing black cod in a sweet and salty marinade compliments it strong flavor. The butteriness of the fish will knock your socks off!
3 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce*
2 Tbsp sweet sake (mirin) or white wine
2 Tbsp sake or water
1/2 Tbsp brown sugar (1 Tbsp if using white wine and water)
4 slices black cod (each about 4 oz)
*substitute gluten-free soy sauce, if desired
1. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the first four ingredients.
2. Place the black cod into the sauce. Let marinate for 15 minutes in the refrigerator. Flip the fish and marinate for an additional 15 minutes.
3. Bake the fish on a baking sheet for 8 to 10 minutes at 380 degrees, or panfry.
