Wild Alaskan Black Cod (Sablefish) is one of my all-time favorite types of fish to eat.
It is so silky and creamy that you would think you are eating a stick of butter! Maybe that’s why one of its more common names is “Butterfish?!”
Besides being creamy and delicious, Black cod is rich in omega 3 fatty acids, B12, and protein.
One of the traditional ways to prepare and eat this fish is smoked, and put onto a bagel – NY Style. As a native New Yorker with Jewish heritage, that’s how I grew up eating it.
But, there is another traditional way to eat it in Japanese culture, and that is to marinate it in miso and bake it. That makes this fish taste smokey and sweet.
And, if you pair this recipe with a side of Sauteed Brassica vegetables you’ve got one heck of a nutritious and delicious meal!
- Combine miso, mirin, shoyu, ginger and water.
- Marinate fish fillets 35 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator.
