Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
Total time: 20 min
Serves: 4


  • 4, 5-6 ounce sablefish (black cod) fillets
  • 1/2 cup white miso
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tablespoons soy sauce or coconut aminos


Prep oven + sauce

Move the top rack of your oven 3-4 inches away from the heat source and set to broil.

In a small sauce pot, whisk together miso, mirin, orange juice and soy sauce. Turn on heat to medium low and stir occasionally. Remove from heat just before it reaches a boil.

Bake fish

Pat fillets dry with a paper towel and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet, skin side down. Evenly distribute miso marinade on top of the fish.

Place sablefish (black cod) in oven and broil for 10-12, minutes or until fish is fully opaque and cooked through. Thin fillets need about 10 minutes. Thicker fillets may need an additional 2-5 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve hot.
