This recipe, which would also be nice with sea bass, features a sake, red pepper, miso and sugar marinade, to give the fish a fantastic eastern flavor. The red pepper can be omitted if you want a milder result or left in if you do not mind a bit of spice. Although the recipe says to marinate the fish for a day, Japanese chefs often leave their cod in the marinade for up to three days, so you can do this for a much stronger flavor. Begin with very fresh cod if you are going to marinate it for a few days.
Serve this tasty Japanese broiled cod recipe with whatever side dish you fancy. You might like to broil some vegetables alongside the fish or you might prefer to stir-fry your favorites in a skillet or even make a Japanese style salad and serve raw vegetables alongside this succulent fish dish, to give a crunchy contrast. It is completely your call.
This is a very simple recipe and broiling fish is easy. You will need a wide spatula to turn the cod over. If you prefer to turn it only once, then baste the first side with mirin before you begin, so you do not have to flip it just for basting. Cod is one of the most popular fish ever and this is just one of many easy fish recipes you can make with it.
- 1 ½ lbs cod filets
- ⅓ cup sake
- ½ teaspoon ground red pepper
- 1 ½ cups white miso
- 2 tablespoons mirin (sweet rice wine)
- ½ tablespoon white sugar
- Cut the fish into 4 pieces.
- Combine the sake, miso, red pepper, and sugar to make a marinade.
- Rub the marinade into the cod and make sure it is well coated.
- Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.
- Scrape off the miso coating.
- Make a shallow cross on the surface of each piece of fish, using a sharp knife, and broil for 20 minutes under a low heat, or until the fish is done, turning it twice.
- Use mirin to brush the cod when you turn it over. This gives the fish a nice glaze.
- Serve the broiled cod with Japanese vegetables and Japanese soy sauce.
As the picture shows, this is a simple cod recipe but a very flavorful one. You can see the color the fish takes on, both from the marinade and from the broiling. Serve this delicious Japanese cod fish recipe with your favorite colorful vegetables on the side, for a healthy and well-balanced meal. You do not have to use eastern vegetables; you can simply boil some broccoli, green beans, or carrots if you prefer those. Any vegetables will be nice alongside this flavorful cod, and you can also serve boiled rice with it too, if you want, with Japanese soy sauce drizzled over it.
