Yield 2 servings
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 90 minutes

Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup sake (can substitute with 1/3 cup water and 1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar)
  • ¼ cup Nature Nate’s pure honey
  • ¼ cup tamari or gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp white mellow miso paste
  • 1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ inch knob fresh ginger
  • 1 lb cod (can substitute salmon, halibut, or sea bass)
  • 1 Tbsp light olive oil


Directions

In a small saucepan, combine the sake, honey, soy sauce, miso, sesame oil, and salt, and whisk to combine. Add the garlic and ginger, and simmer until thickened – about 5 minutes. Allow to cool fully. Marinate the fish in half of the glaze, reserving the rest for serving. Marinate for an hour or covered in the refrigerator overnight. To prepare the fish, heat a nonstick or cast iron skillet to medium high heat, and turn the oven on to 350 degrees. Pat the fish dry with a paper towel, add the oil in the pan, and place the fish gently in the pan, flesh side down. Do not move the fish, and allow to sear for about 2-3 minutes. Gently flip, and place in the oven for five minutes. Serve by spooning the remaining sauce over the fish.
