Miso Glazed Cod
(enough to marinate 2 fillets, adapted from Epicurious)
1/3 cup Mirin
1/2 cup white miso paste
1/4 cup sugar
2 6-ounce fillets of black cod
Bring the mirin to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat. Boil for 20 seconds to evaporate the alcohol. Turn the heat to low and add the miso paste, mixing with a wooden spoon. When miso is dissolved completely, turn the heat up and pour sugar into the pot. Stir consistently until the sugar is dissolved, make sure not to let the sugar burn on the bottom
reserve some of the glaze for drizzling when you are ready to eat. Let the rest of the miso glaze cool completely and pour over cod fillets in a bowl, let marinate for a few hours or for up to 2 to 3 days. When you are ready to cook, place fillets on a parchment lined baking sheet and roast in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes.
Drizzle with reserved glaze and serve alongside sauteed mushrooms and roasted brussel sprouts, as shown here or with your favorite veggies!!
