  • 2 cod loins
  • 1 tbsp miso paste
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 spring onion


  • Mix all the marinade ingredients in a small bowl until sugar dissolves. Spoon it all over the cod loins, cover and leave in the fridge to marinade for 1 hour.
  • Heat a non-stick frying pan with 3 tbsp of vegetable or other odourless oil on medium heat. Add the cod and fry for 3 minutes. Then cover with the lid and fry for another 3 minutes. Take the lid off, turn the cod over and increase the heat to high and cook for another minute. (You may need to adjust timings based on how thick your fish pieces are - ours were cm thick).
  • Scatter some spring onion on top and serve with mashed potato or rice and an Asian Style Cucumber Ribbon Salad!
