Miso Glazed Black Cod

Sablefish, a.k.a black cod has always been one of my favorite fish to eat. The combination of the rich buttery flavor, perfectly white flakiness, and smooth texture is absolutely irresistible. When marinated is a sweet and spicy miso glaze, this fish launches to a higher level of flavor!


2 lbs Wulf’s Fish Black cod (4 filets)

¼ cup White miso paste

½ cup Sake or dry white wine

¼ cup Mirin

1 Tbs sugar

1 Tbs toasted sesame oil

1 Tbs sriracha sauce


In a saucepan over medium heat, add the sake and mirin and bring to a boil. Reduce this mixture for about 30 seconds, then whisk in the miso, sriracha, and sugar. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 3 minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat and whisk in the sesame oil, set aside and allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. Place the fish filets and miso mixture into a gallon size ziplock bag and move the fish around in the marinade until all pieces are fully coated, seal the bag and refrigerate for 8-24 hours.

Preheat your broiler to high and position the rack 6-8 inches below it. Remove the fish from the bag and brush off any excess marinade. Place the filets on a sheet pan or baking sheet and place it under the broiler for 8-10 minutes. Be sure to keep an eye on the fish while cooking as the marinade will caramelize and start to char. Remove the fish from the heat and served immediately with the side dish of your choice. I used spicy Asian greens with sauteed mushrooms.
