Miso Cod
13th November, 2018

This Miso Cod dish is so simple to make as it just involves making a simple marinade and popping the dish into the oven. The colours and flavours really make this cod dish stand out

I’ve provided a few alternative ingredients in here as well but if possible I’d recommend always using the main one as it’ll taste more like the traditional dish


  • 4 Tbsp white miso paste (tahini as an alternative)
  • 4 Tbsp Chinese rice wine (dry sherry as an alternative)
  • 1 Tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, ?nely grated
  • 20g fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 Tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 spring onion, finely sliced
  • Handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  • 4 cod fillets, skinless


    In a bowl, mix together the miso, rice wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, sugar and rice vinegar in a small bowl

    Place the cod fillets in a shallow dish and pour over the contents of the bowl. Seal and store in the fridge for a few hours to marinate

    Preheat the oven to 200 C

    Remove the fish from the shallow dish and reserve the marinade

    Place the cod on a lined baking tray and place in the oven for about 10-12 minutes until the cod is cooked

    Take the reserved marinade and pour into a small saucepan and reduce on a medium heat to thicken

    When the cod is done, remove from the oven and baste with the reduced marinade

    Serve immediately with a sprinkling of chopped onion and coriander

    I like to serve it with simple white rice and some Pak choi
