Miso-Marinated Cod

Posted By Stephen


On Saturday kitchen this weekend the subject of miso-marinated black cod arose; that famous / infamous dish given iconic status by establishments such as Nobu. In a rare moment of sanity, Paul Rankin managed to string a few sentences together and provide some useful information – it was not normal cod, it was often from Alaska, was also called sablefish and a sustainably sourced version was available in Marks & Spencer. Which made us want to cook it. But we failed to find it in the small M&S near to us, so we ended up with line-caught standard cod instead.

We followed this recipe and marinated it for two days. The result was rather sweet, probably my fault for not brushing off enough of the marinade before grilling it, which is also the reason for the black bits. Not an overwhelming success.

After having cooked it, I had a vague sense of deja vu, but can’t find anything about it on Dinner Diary. Kerri just managed to find though – I had failed to find it because it was bream that we used last time. Much the same though.

  1. ooo it does sound interesting and it is useful to know – thanks for introducing us to the recipe! It looks rather lush on the plate despite the black bits! 🙂 xxx

    The picture still looks delicious, nonetheless. I’ve never had Nobu’s version, but I did really enjoy the one I had at Patara (a Thai restaurant, no less). I also find with many miso-marinated dishes they tend to be pretty sweet.

  3. It still looks good – particularly the plate. I have a recipe for miso salmon on my blog but I am sure you could adapt this to cod and it works really well

    If you can get your hands on ling cod / sablefish / black cod, do try it; it’s good stuff – very buttery.
