Serves: 4


  • 1 1⁄2 lbs. cod, cut into 4 even pieces
  • 1⁄4 cup sake
  • 1⁄4 cup mirin
  • 1⁄4 cup white miso paste


  • Place the cod, sake, mirin, and miso paste in a large zip-top bag and gently shake so that the cod is evenly coated with the marinade. Refrigerate the cod overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F and spray a 9-by-13-inch casserole dish lightly with nonstick spray. Gently shake the excess marinade off of the fish and place it in the prepared casserole dish.
  • Bake the cod until it is browned and flakes easily with a fork, 10 to 15 minutes.
