  • STAFF-FAVORITE

Chef Way This sweet and silky fish dish, which has been cloned at restaurants all over the country, is fairly simple to make, though it's somewhat time-consuming: Nobu Matsuhisa of the Nobu restaurant empire recommends marinating the black cod in a good deal of the sake-miso marinade for 2 to 3 days.

Easy Way Let the fish marinate overnight in just enough sake and miso to coat it.

  1. 3 tablespoons mirin
  2. 3 tablespoons sake
  3. 1/2 cup white miso paste
  4. 1/3 cup sugar
  5. Six 6- to 7-ounce skinless black cod fillets, about 1 1/2 inches thick
  6. Vegetable oil, for grilling
  7. Pickled ginger, for serving
  1. In a small saucepan, bring the mirin and sake to a boil. Whisk in the miso until dissolved. Add the sugar and cook over moderate heat, whisking, just until dissolved. Transfer the marinade to a large baking dish and let cool. Add the fish and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°. Heat a grill pan and oil it. Scrape the marinade off the fish. Add the fish and cook over high heat until browned, about 2 minutes. Flip the fish onto a heavy rimmed baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes, until flaky. Transfer to plates and serve with pickled ginger.
Make Ahead The marinade can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.

Suggested Pairing

Spicy, full-bodied Gewürztraminer.
