This recipe is super simple yet full of flavor. Recipe author Stu Weathers is now on his fourth decade as a commercial fisherman. With his trusty fishing vessel, El Tiburon, Weathers catches halibut, sablefish (black cod), spot shrimp, and a few salmon species. You can watch an interview with Weathers, chatting while he catches sablefish.
- 1 lb sablefish (black cod) fillets, cut into 4 pieces
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon water
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
- 4 garlic cloves, minced to a paste
- 1/4 cup mirin
Make Teriyaki Sauce
Combine water and cornstarch in a small bowl to create a slurry. In a small saucepan over medium-low, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, and mirin. Stir in cornstarch slurry and simmer until sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Let cool completely.
In a large resealable bag, place sablefish fillets with teriyaki sauce. Marinate for at least 2 hours—overnight is preferable.
Preheat a gas or charcoal grill over medium heat. Place marinated sablefish fillets skin-side down on the grates. Cover and cook for approximately 12–15 minutes or until the fish begins to flake. Serve immediately!
Note: You can use 3/4 cup of your favorite teriyaki sauce mixed with 1 Tbsp freshly grated ginger and 4 finely minced garlic cloves to make this even easier.
