Ingredients

2 pounds black cod or salmon fillets, skin on

2 cups Den Miso, recipe follows

Den Miso:

1 1/2 cups white miso

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup sake

3/4 cup mirin

Directions

  1. Cut fish into 8 (4-ounce) pieces. Place fish in 1 layer in a shallow dish. Pour 2 cups den miso over fish, turning to coat thoroughly. Cover with plastic wrap, and marinate in refrigerator for 2 to 3 days, turning once a day. Heat broiler to high. Remove fish from marinade, and place on a baking sheet, skin side down. Broil until caramelized, 2 to 3 minutes. With a flat spatula, turn fish, and broil 2 to 3 minutes more. Serve immediately.

Den Miso:

  1. Combine miso and sugar in the top of a double boiler. Add sake and mirin, and whisk to combine, using a heavy whisk. Cook over boiling water, stirring frequently until sugar is dissolved and the color begins to darken, 30 to 45 minutes. Remove from heat, and cool.
