What We are Eating- Honey Marinated Fish

Honey Marinated Fish 
adapted from No Gojis No Glory

Since the kids are gone this week I wanted to make something new that was more for Darryl and I.  This recipe for Honey Marinated Fish actually calls for Cod Fillets but I had the privilege of cleaning out my sister-in-laws freezer before they moved out of state and she had a bag of frozen Mahi Mahi so I used that instead.  The marinade has great flavor - I would absolutely make this again! 

  • 4, 6-oz black cod fillets (aka sablefish)
  • ¾ cup honey
  • ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • ⅓ cup toasted sesame seed oil
  • ⅓ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1½ tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tsp freshly chopped ginger
  1. Combine all ingredients (except for fish) in a medium-sized airtight mixing bowl. Add cod and marinate for 24 hours. If possible, flip half way through marinade time to allow even flavor distribution.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F; prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove cod from marinade and bake on the center rack for 7-9 minutes, until cod is opaque and flakes easily.
