I try to have fish at least once a week and I usually end up buying Cod in the store, especially if it is fresh. Today I wanted to try something different. I always like Black Cod and Miso sauce when I am out at a restaurant and they have it on the menu, it is light and tasty. And if it is prepared right it melts in your mouth. So I went out on the Internet to try to find something similar to prepare with my fresh cod file I had at home. I came across a great little blog called Rasa Malaysia and in her blog she had this recipe called Black Cod with MisoI adjusted it for my tasting and it turned out great. With this cod I served Udon noodles and Brussel Sprouts with Black bean Sauce.
Please let me know your cod recipes, I am always looking for new ones to try.
Cod with Miso

2 tablespoons sugar
Mix the marinate ingredients thoroughly in a bowl and set aside while you prepare your side dishes.
Preheat oven to 400 degree F.
Preheat a frying pan.
Place the fish on the frying pan and lightly grill on both sides until the surface turns brown.
Transfer the fish fillets to the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
Heat the remainder of the marinade in the frying pan and use as extra sauce.
