David's Recipe for Teriyaki Fish

A good solution for bland fish.

Main Course, Japanese

  • 5 lb fillets of cod, or other neutral-tasting fish, about 3/8" thick
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1" by 2" piece of fresh ginger, diced fine
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, diced fine
  • 1/2 cup saki or dry white wine
  1. Have the fish at room temperature. Preheat the broiler.
  2. Cut the fish into pieces about 2" by 2".
  3. Make a marinade of all of the rest of the ingredients, except for the oil, and marinate the fish for 1/2 hour, mixing occasionally.
  4. Oil a baking pan or cookie sheet and lay the fish in a single layer.
  5. Broil about 6" from the heat for about 10 minutes. It is not necessary to turn. Remove from the pan and repeat until you have broiled all of the fish.
  6. You can make a fish sauce by broiling the remaining marinade in the same broiler for a few minutes.
