Recipe: Sweet Miso Black Cod

Black Cod is not often talked about as a health food and you may wonder why? Black Cod has a pretty incredible omega 3 index - it actually contains higher amounts of omega 3 fatty acids than salmon or tuna. Not only that, Black Cod is an excellent source of phosphorus, selenium, B vitamins, and iodine. There is one precaution when considering whether or not you should eat Black Cod on a regular basis - it is higher in mercury than some of the other smaller fish, so it’s recommended you stick to one or two servings per month of this decadent fish.


5, 6 oz pieces wild black cod
1/2 cup brown miso
1/2 cup Mirin
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 lemon, juiced
5 tsp Balanced Oil (BodyBio)
2 Tbsp black sesame seeds


1. Heat a large cast iron skillet and add Mirin. Bring to a simmer and let simmer for 5 min. Turn the heat down to low and add miso and coconut sugar and stir to combine.
2. Prepare your fish by covering each piece with lemon juice. Place fish in your miso sauce and cover. Cook on low for 10 min or until fish is done.
3. Transfer to serving plates and generously scoop sauce over each piece of fish. Drizzle 1 tsp of BodyBio Balance Oil and a sprinkle of black sesame seeds on each piece of fish. Top with green onions. Serve with an organic mixed green salad.
