Nobu Matsuhisa's teriyaki recipe couldn't be simpler. He calls for boneless chicken breasts, but thighs would also be delicious.
Black Cod with Miso

A signature at Nobu restaurants, this sweet-savory miso black cod recipe has been cloned by chefs all over the world. Nobu miso black cod is made by marinating black cod in a good deal of the sake-miso marinade for two to three days, but the fish is also spectacular if you marinate it only overnight in just enough sake and miso to coat. Slideshow:  More Grilled Seafood Recipes 
Nobu is as expert with meat as he is with fish. Early in his career, at his restaurant in Lima, Peru, he was grilling beef and making tangy, mildly spicy red chile (ají panca) sauce and spicier yellow chile (ají amarillo) sauce. He serves both sauces with this seared beef tenderloin. Slideshow: More Beef Recipes   Recipe from Food & Wine Best New Chefs All-Star Cookbook
