Misoyaki Butterfish is a classic Hawaii dish. Impressive, delicious, and easy to make. Just marinate butterfish (black cod) overnight in a miso marinade, then bake in the oven and eat with rice.


  • Four black cod fillets (6-8 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup Kikkoman Mirin
  • ½ cup sake
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup white miso


    1. Make the marinade. Combine mirin, sake, and sugar in a saucepan. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and then turn the heat to low.
    2. Add the white miso. Simmer and whisk for 5-10 minutes until the marinade is smooth and caramel in color. Remove from heat and let cool completely.
    3. Wash and pat dry the black cod fillets (make sure it is completely dry). Place all four filets into a large Ziploc bag. Pour the cooled marinade over the fish. Seal the bag and marinate in the refrigerator for 1-3 days.
    4. When you’re ready to eat, wipe (do not rinse) excess marinade from the fish. Cook in the oven at 450F for 5-8 minutes. Then broil for 1-2 minutes, until the top is deeply caramelized and golden.
    5. Eat with rice! Enjoy
