Special marinade for melt in your mouth Black Cod (Sablefish)

One of my oldest friends and the most talented artist I have met, Anne Carson (check out her jewellery designs at gave me this recipe. Super simple (just needs time), it's guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser. All ingredients are available at most grocery stores.


3/4 C Japanese soy sauce

3 T sugar

2 T Marin

2 T sake

1/4 t grated ginger

1/4 t grated garlic

4 6-ounce pieces of sablefish (black cod)


Combine marinade ingredients in a ziplock bag and mix.

Add the fish, making sure it is well-coated

Seal and refrigerate for 24 hours, turning to ensure full coverage.

Preheat oven to 425F.

Place fish on a non-stick baking sheet, leaving space between each piece (I use parchment paper to line the pan - no clean up after).

Bake for 12 minutes.

Perfect every time. Enjoy!!! So easy and so tasty.

Serve with a lightly steamed veg and either roasted potatoes or rice.
