Honey Soy Marinated Cod Fillet

honeysoycod2 Obviously white cod on white rice does not get good marks for presentation. Some steamed green veggies would have worked far better no? Oh well, you’ll have to trust me on this one.  The  honey soy marinade is really nice.  Just the right balance of salty and sweet, and it compliments rather than overpowers the mild cod.


2 cod fillets

3 tbsp honey

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp rice vinegar

1 tsp sesame oil

dime sized slice of fresh ginger, finely minced

pinch of chili powder

1 tbsp sesame seeds (preferably black)

salt and freshly ground pepper

1.  Combine the honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, ginger and chili powder in a baking dish. Stir well to combine.

2. Add the cod fillets and marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes

3.  Place the covered baking dish in a oven preheated to 350.

4.  Bake, covered, for about 30 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

5.  Remove from oven, spoon extra sauce over fish , season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

    Ooh, I love this recipe! I make fish a lot since we live not far from a fish quay (but far enough not to smell it!) and can get all kinds of fresh fish, but I get bored with doing the same thing all the time. My next fish dish upon returning home will be this one!
