Instructions

To prepare the sauce, boil the mirin with the sake for 20 seconds on high heat (this way the alcohol evaporates, but the sake flavor remains). Lower the heat and keep it that way while you add the miso paste, stirring with a wooden spoon. Increase the heat again and add the sugar, beating continuously. Allow to cool to room temperature before using it as marinade for fish.

Dry the cod fillets with paper towel and spread a generous layer of miso sauce over them. Keep them in the refrigerator in a covered container for at least 12 hours. When cooking them, preheat the broiler or the oven broiler. Gently remove the excess of miso stuck to the fillets, but leave a good portion of the sauce. Cook them in the oven at 149º C (300º F) for 10 minutes or until they take a caramelized color. Watch that they do not dry out and add more miso sauce if needed. Serve them immediately. Cover with a teaspoon of roasted sesame seeds. You can accompany black grain rice, which is a variety of traditional Asian rice.
