  • 6 (7-ounce) Alaskan black cod fillet pieces
  • Marinade:
  • 2 cups acacia or other strongly flavored honey
  • 3/4 cup grape seed oil
  • 1 cup light soy sauce

  • Sauteed Spinach:
  • 1/2 pound spinach, thoroughly washed
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • Grated nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Salt and black pepper
  • To prepare the marinade: Combine honey, grape seed oil, soy sauce, and white wine vinegar. Cover the fish with the marinade, cover and refrigerate for 24 hours. Remove the fish and place in a pan. Caramelize the fish under the broiler and finish in a preheated 400 degree F oven until the fish reaches medium. Reserve some of the marinade to use for sauce.

  • To prepare the spinach: Heat the butter in a hot saute pan. When the butter begins to brown, add the garlic. Add the spinach. Cook until tender. Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper, to taste. Set aside.

  • Heat reserve marinade to boiling point, reduce heat and simmer for two to three minutes.

  • To assemble the plate: In the center of each of 6 large bowls divide the spinach. Place a portion of fish on top and pour approximately 2 tablespoons of reserved marinade, over the top of each fish.
