Author Notes: An easy cod recipe that's a cinch to prepare.Amanda Li

Food52 Review: WHO: Amanda Li worked with the Food52 development team when we were still brand-new.
WHAT: A deceptively simple weeknight cod recipe.
HOW: Marinate cod in a mirin-miso mixture, then bake at 350° F for ten minutes then serve it over brown rice to soak up all the sauce.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The short ingredient list and almost-as-brief method betray the depth of flavor in this recipe that makes the most of cod season (which is January through March!).

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Mix miso and mirin in saucepan and heat over low flame to dissolve miso.
  3. Let marinade cool, then place in an oven-proof dish large enough to fit the fish, then place the fillets in marinade, fully covered if possible, and let it sit for 30 minutes.
