Ingredients

  • 75g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp sake
  • 250g sweet white miso
  • 1 tbsp ginger juice (the liquid from
  • a jar or pack of pickled ginger)
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp grated fresh lemon zest
  • ½ green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • ½ red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 4 x 150g black cod fillets (also known as sablefish, or use line-caught cod)

To serve

  • 2 spring onions, shredded, to serve
  • Pickled ginger

Method

  1. Put the sugar and sake in a pan over a low heat and cook, stirring, to dissolve the sugar. Put into a large bowl, add the remaining ingredients, except the cod, and mix until smooth. Add the cod and turn to coat in the marinade. Cover and marinate for 24 hours, turning the fish over halfway.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Lift the cod from the marinade and transfer to a foil-lined grill pan. Pop under the grill and cook, basting with the marinade a few times, for 3-5 minutes each side, until just cooked. 3. Garnish with the shredded spring onion and pickled ginger.
