I have a question about the recipe "Miso Black Cod" from edamame2003. Can you substitute black cod with cod?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
I suppose you could, but it might work better for a fish that is a little bit denser. I would try halibut, cobia, snapper, striped bass, or even mackerel if you don't mind a fish that's slightly more oily (I think the marinade described in the recipe would balance that out well enough).

I agree with Jan... Cod is a bit too flaky for this recipe, because black cod (sablefish) has much denser texture. Salmon might work well too. I've seen a lot of recipes that subbed salmon for sablefish in black cod miso.

I agree with the above suggestions. I've also made this sort of recipe with Arctic Char and trout fillets.
I've made this recipe with with salmon a few times- it works very well- but not with plain cod for the reasons others have mentioned.

I made it with halibut several times. Perfection!!
