Soy and Honey Glazed Cod

Here's a super healthy and delicious dinner for the New Year. Cod is a mild white fish that will absorb the flavors that you use with it. Here, it gets a little sweet/savory treatment that is reminiscent of Japanese or other Asian flavors.

In this recipe, the cod is broiled, so it is ready in a flash, and the broiling also creates the nice crust from the honey. It does need a few minutes to marinate, or a few hours if you've planned ahead, but then dinner will be ready in a snap.

I served this over a chopped Asian salad, the kind in a bag with the almonds and wonton strips... it was super easy to throw this together while the fish cooked, and the crunchy salad paired really well with the soft fish. I would even dare to call it restaurant worthy!

I hope your family enjoys it as much as we did.

Soy and Honey Glazed Cod

1 pound Alaska cod
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 1/2 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. honey
2 tsp. sesame oil
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Combine the lemon juice, soy sauce, honey, oil, ginger and red pepper flakes in a measuring cup and whisk well. Place the fish in a small dish and cover with the marinade. Turn the fish over to coat all sides. Let stand 10-15 minutes to marinate, or if you have planned ahead, marinate the cod for up to 4 hours in the refrigerator. (If you keep the fish in the fridge, let it come to room temp for about 15 minutes prior to baking.)

Set broiler temperature to high; move oven rack to 7 inches below the broiler element. Grease a small baking sheet, and add the cod, pouring the marinade over the top.

Cook just until cod is opaque throughout, about 5-8 minutes. (Time will vary depending on the thickness of your fish pieces.)

Serve over Asian chopped salad, or with rice and fresh steamed vegetables.
