A signature at Nobu restaurants, this sweet-savory fish dish has been cloned by chefs all over the world. Nobu marinates the 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

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.
