Baked honey-marinated cod from

    • 4, 6-oz black cod fillets (aka sablefish)
    • ¾ cup honey
    • ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce
    • ⅓ cup toasted sesame seed oil
    • ⅓ cup apple cider vinegar
    • 1½ tsp freshly ground pepper
    • 1 tsp freshly chopped ginger
  1. Combine all ingredients (except for fish) in a medium-sized airtight mixing bowl. Add cod and marinate for 24 hours. If possible, flip half way through marinade time to allow even flavor distribution.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F; prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove cod from marinade and bake on the center rack for 7-9 minutes, until cod is opaque and flakes easily.

Miso Black Cod from


1/2 cup Asian pear juice (or apple juice)
3 tablespoons red miso
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon umeboshi (preserved plum) or mirin (rice cooking wine)
3 cloves garlic
1/2 inch peeled ginger, chopped
3/4 pounds black cod

Mix all of the marinade ingredients together in a blender. Marinate the fish — I used a boneless filet — for at least 12 hours and no more than 36 hours. I served it with Chinese broccoli (you could use broccoli rabe), stir-fried in tamari, ginger, and garlic. I also made a purée of parsnips and sunchokes, with a little bit of cream, and a tiny bit of salt and sugar. Serves 2
