Easy to Eat Fish

This is my wife's favorite fish recipe. It's an easy sort-of-Korean, sort-of-Japanese dish with a serious kick from the gochujang, and a warm sweetness from the ginger and miso. Yellow or white miso can be substituted for the koji-kun, and the gochujang can be scaled back to accommodate tolerance.

Directions
  1. Mix all the ingredients above, loosening with enough water to make a thick barbeque sauce.
  2. Marinate fish for 35-40mins.
  3. Grease a pan, and set your broiler to high. Wipe the filets clean of the marinade. They should be stained a pretty rosy red.
  4. Broil until filets are done to your liking and a little crispy on top. ~7mins for a .5" thick filet positioned ~2" from my broiler.
