We only eat wild fish at home and I really have a hard time finding wild black miso cod in stores! I recently unexpectedly found it and bought 3 pounds!
The classic dish made with this fish is the miso marinade. I am a big fan of this dish and I always have it when I am eating in an asian fusion restaurant.
They apparently let it marinate for 2 days at Nobu restaurants to get this intense flavor. The fish is supposed to be very very tender, with a light crisp on top and very flaky.
Try it and enjoy!!
