    Sackville's Note:

    This is a recipe for cod from Mark Edwards, the chef at Nobu (said to be London's best Japanese restaurant). There is no measurement given for the sake, so a bit of intuition is needed. Hopefully the guesswork will pay off though. This is their signature dish so it must be worth the effort! Apparently you can also substitute salmon for cod.

      For the missing amount of sake, Wolfgang Puck's site has this recipe and lists it as using 1/2 cup sake. Hope that helps!

      I really liked this recipe. My measurements were all off I'm sure as I didn't bother convert metric to standard. But I used equal parts sake and mirin. And roughly equal parts miso paste and sugar. I loved how the glaze cooked down to a syrup.
