“Black cod is my favorite fish... a tender, white, non-fishy fish that goes wonderfully well with teriyaki sauce. If you've never had black cod, do yourself a favor and find some! It is also known as "sablefish." I can sometimes find it served in Japanese restaurants, and occasionally served smoked in Scandinavian restaurants. I usually purchase mine in Ballard (a Scandinavian Seattle neighborhood) markets or at Uwajimaya (Seattle Asian grocery) or Ranch 99 Markets (Tukwila Asian grocery).”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (if you're going to bake the steaks).
  2. Mix together the melted butter, marinade, garlic, and a few dashes of pepper.
  3. Pour the mixture over cod steaks in a shallow glass dish, and let marinate for at least 20 minutes.
  4. To bake: bake in a casserole or baking dish in the marinade at 350 for about 20-30 minutes or until fish flakes easily.
  5. To grill: cook on a grill pan on your stove, turning carefully once, until fish flakes easily, about 15 to 20 minutes, brushing occasionally with marinade. I've also done it using a Foreman grill, brushing occasionally with marinade, until it flaked easily; it can take anywhere between 10-15 minutes, depending on your Foreman.
  6. Serve with steamed white rice, a little of the juices poured over.
