Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup grape jelly
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Four 6-ounce skinless black cod fillets
  • 3 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
  • Cooked white rice, for serving
Directions
  • Place the soy, jelly and vinegar in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring until the jelly melts, about 1 minute. Let the glaze cool, and then place in a resealable plastic bag with the cod. Marinate in the refrigerator about 1 hour.

  • Preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil.

  • Remove the cod from the marinade and place the marinade in a small saucepan. Transfer the cod to the prepared baking sheet. Bring the glaze to a boil and turn off the heat. Remove 2 tablespoons of the glaze from the pot, reserving the rest for serving, and brush the cod with the glaze. Broil the cod about 5 inches from the heat, brushing with additional glaze halfway through, until just cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish. It should feel just firm to the touch.

  • Stir together the scallions and zest and sprinkle over the fish. Serve with rice and the reserved glaze.
