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!!Print

We only eat sustainable seafood at home too – Canada has so many great fish options. I’m usually quite simple with how we eat it but I love the idea of marinating it ahead of time. I’m heading out for some sake and will make this recipe.

yes Canada is amazing for that! we eat only wild fish (and it’s pricey) but there is big difference 🙂 Hope you’ll like it!

This looks soooo yummy and really simple to make. I like that you marinade your fish for a day or two. It makes the fish much more flavourful. Thanks for sharing!

Kelly, this looks absolutely delicious! I’m a very plant based eater but do enjoy wild fish every so often (it’s difficult to find and pricey here in Alberta) but I’m going to Pin this for future reference the next time I come across a beautiful piece of black cod. Happy new year!

hi! Thanks for your lovely comment! I spent two months in Edmonton and it was pretty difficult to find fresh wild fish.. I was eating mostly frozen fish because it was the only one I could find.. Hope you’ll be more lucky than I am! xoxo
