Miso-Glazed Cod


pound(s) uncooked Pacific cod, four 6 oz black cod or regular cod fillets
¼cup(s) miso
2Tbsp dark brown sugar
1fl oz mirin, about 2 tablespoons
1Tbsp ginger root, freshly grated
1Tbsp sesame oil, dark-variety
¼cup(s) rice wine vinegar
¼cup(s) uncooked scallion(s), sliced very thin (for garnish)


Place fish, skin-side down, in a broiler-proof pan. Place miso, sugar, mirin, ginger, oil and vinegar in a blender; blend until smooth. Pour glaze over cod and marinate in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour. Preheat broiler to high. Broil fish until topping turns golden brown and starts to caramelize, and fish is no longer translucent in middle, about 8 to 10 minutes. Serve garnished with scallions. Yields 1 fillet per serving.
