Miso-Marinated Black Cod

Black cod miso has become a world-renowned recipe thanks to his creator, Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa. It has been Nobu's signature dish since 1987.

Ingredients

2 Black Cod Fillet Steaks

150g Rice of your choice

2 Garlic Cloves (finely sliced)

100g Tenderstem Broccoli

1 1/2 Tsp Light Brown Sugar

1 1/2 Tbsp Mirin

1 1/2 Tbsp Sake

3 Tbsp White Miso

Cooking steps

Step 1

Start by making the marinade. Combine the white miso, mirin, sake, and sugar in a bowl and mix together until smooth. Blanch the broccoli and set aside, ready to be sautéed before serving.

Step 2

Fully coat the black cod in the marinade. For a stronger flavour, you could put the fillets in an air-tight container and leave in the fridge for a few hours or overnight before cooking, however this method still has a delicious end result!

Step 3

Heat some olive oil in a pan and pan-fry the cod fillets, starting skin-side down. Make sure to fry the fish slowly and gently to ensure that the miso marinade does not burn. Fry each side for roughly 4-5 minutes, or until golden and crispy.

Step 4

Quickly sauté the broccoli in a pan with butter and the finely chopped garlic. Serve the miso black cod with your chosen rice and the broccoli. Enjoy!
