I make a miso glaze for cod frequently, decided to give it a try with raspberry syrup. The sweet tart raspberry syrup with, mirin and light miso and brightened by lime go very well together. I served with a frisee and raspberry salad dressed simply with salt, pepper and vinegar. (In keeping with the theme I used Raspberry white balsamic on the salad. I recommend using fresh cod not frozen and thawed for this recipe. If you use frozen make sure its dried well before adding the glaze. —sdebrango

Cooking the Cod
Pre-heat your oven to broil,
Brush sheet pan with olive oil, place cod filet on sheet pan and sprinkle with salt, brush each filet generously with glaze.
Place in broiler for 7-8 minutes depending on thickness of your fish. The top of the cod will be nicely browned and the inside will be opaque.
Remove from oven and cover with foil. Before serving brush a little more glaze on top of fish.
I have loved to cook for as long as I can remember, am self taught learning as I go. I come from a large Italian family and food was at the center of almost every gathering. My grandfather made his own wine and I remember the barrels of wine in the cellar of my grandfathers home, I watched my mother and aunts making homemade pasta and remember how wonderful it was to sit down to a truly amazing dinner. Cooking for me is a way to express myself its my creative outlet. I enjoy making all types of food but especially enjoy baking,
I live in Brooklyn, NY, and I share my home with my two dogs Izzy and Nando.
I like to collect cookbooks and scour magazines and newspapers for recipes. I hope one day to organize them.
