Did you know that the infamous black cod at Nobu is now £42 per portion?! Although one of my absolute favourite things to eat, at that price it’s certainly worth trying to replicate the dish at home! Here is my ultra quick version which I made I first made 2 years ago, some of you may remember? It comes in at roughly £3 per portion. Instead of marinating the fish for a few days (who’s got time for that?) I’ve opted for 30 minutes and then a quick blast in a hot oven. Who’s going to give this a go?
2 cod fillets
1 spring onion - finely chopped
1 chill - finely chopped
2 teaspoons sesame oil
Juice of half a lime
4 teaspoons white miso paste
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
Preheat the oven to 230 degrees.
Pat the cod dry with kitchen towel. Mix the marinade ingredients together in a bowl (reserving a little to finish) and coat the fish thoroughly. Leave for 30 minutes if you can. Place on a roasting tray and into the oven for 10 minutes. If you have a blow torch (not absolutely necessary!) then finish the cod with a quick blast. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with noodles and green veg drizzled in sesame oil and lime juice.
