This tasty cod recipe is easy to make and if you fancy an oriental style dinner this is a nice one to choose. Sake, sugar, soy sauce, and mirin combine to make a flavorful teriyaki sauce which is poured over the cod and cooks with it. The cod is blackened on one side first, before the teriyaki mixture is added to the pan. You can vary the vegetables used in this dish, perhaps using cucumber or daikon radish. Bell pepper or mushrooms would also work with it.
Cod is a very popular fish and it features in many easy fish recipes, including recipes for soups, stews, and chowders. Its large flakes give it a great texture and whether you bake it, deep fry it or pan fry it, cod always comes out delicious. This is not the most economical fish you can buy but it is not the most expensive either. Searing it in the pan gives it a flavorful crust which both adds crunch to the fish and also seals in its juices to make it extra succulent.

Fish is nutritious and you can do so much with it. Why not have a go at making the following seared cod recipe for your family’s dinner tonight?

This colorful and appetizing recipe features cod, rice, vegetables, and a homemade teriyaki sauce. To get the blackened, seared effect, like you can see in the photo, it is important to ensure the oil in the pan is very hot before you add the cod, else the fish will go soggy instead of crunchy, and it might not go golden brown. The teriyaki sauce helps to darken the color too, as well as infusing he dish with a wonderful flavor. If you want to serve wine with this, go for something medium sweet like a Riesling. That will be able to stand up to the semi-sweet flavor of the dish.
