Miso Glazed Black Cod

Hi Friends,
I've been knitting like crazy, trying to knock out some holiday gifts sooner rather than later. 
Can't wait until they are all done, pictures coming soon. 

Staying true to this weeks nutrition challenge I have another seafood recipe to share with you today.

It's been raining all week which always inspires me to get creative in the kitchen

Everyone has their go to item on a menu, miso glazed black cod is my all star, hands down, go-to. It's usually served at Japanese restaurants. If prepared correctly the fish is flaky and tender, with a hardened sweet miso glaze. 

This recipe is pretty simple, it requires you to marinade the black cod for at least 2 hours but preferably 2-3 days. I don't have much patience in the kitchen but I did marinade mine for 29 hours.

Black cod is a fatty fish full of omega3. It has a mild fishy flavor and is almost impossible to over cook. 

Let's dive into this recipe:

Miso Glazed Black Cod
Recipe found at www.thekitchn.com

1/4 cup sake
1/4 cup mirin
4 tbsp miso paste
3 tbsp white sugar
4 black cod fillets

Bring sake and mirin to boil in small sauce pan over med-high heat
Boil for 15-20 second to allow alcohol to evaporate 

Turn heat to low, add miso paste and whisk to combine

When miso is dissolved turn heat to high and add sugar

Whisk to make sure sugar doesn't burn 

Remove from heat once sugar is fully dissolved 

Allow marinade to cool to room temp 

Rinse black cod fillets and pay dry with paper towel, place in plastic bag
Pour marinade over fish and remove as much air as possible from bag
Place in refrigerator for 2 hours or up to 2-3 days 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
Remove fillets from bag, do not rinse 

Place fish, skin side up, on grill or broiler pan
Grill or broil until fish turns brown with blacken spots, about 3 minutes

Flip and cook other side until brown, transfer to oven and bake for 5-10 minutes
Fish is done when it is opaque and flakes easily 

That's all today folks,
Peace & love,
