Serves: 3

Time: 50 minutes

 

Ingredients

1 pound wild-caught cod

For marinade:

1/2 cup organic, low sodium tamari (soy-free option: coconut aminos)

1/3 cup rice wine vinegar

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 teaspoon minced ginger

For garnish:

1 teaspoon sesame seeds

2 stalks green onions, sliced

 

Directions

In a medium bowl, combine marinade ingredients. Marinate cod in a zip-top bag or small shallow container for about 30 minutes. You could use this time to prepare my roasted carrots recipe (http://guesswhoscooking.com/2014/01/06/roasted-carrots/). You can add about 2 tablespoons of sugar (or honey or agave) to the marinade if you’d like the recipe to be sweeter and to achieve more browning, but I chose not to.

 

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place cod on a baking sheet and bake for about 12 minutes, or until almost flakes with a fork. Top with sesame seeds, then broil for 2-4 minutes. Garnish with green onions and serve with a vegetable side (other suggestions Рsteamed broccoli, salad, saut̩ed green beans with garlic). Although I did not add sugar to my marinade, the sesame seeds gave it a nice crust-like crunch.
