In a small saucepan, combine the sake, honey, tamari, 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°F. Pat the fish dry with a paper towel, add the oil to 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 5 minutes. Serve by spooning the remaining sauce over the fish.
