I've been wanting a new way to cook cod these days, and decided to come up with an Asian marinade for it. My goal was to use ingredients I readily have in my fridge and pantry, and for a marinade that was a little sweet so Sam would like it. After a few tries, I came up with a great combination of flavors (savory, sweet, and tangy) that work great with fish and that my family loves.
Sesame Ginger Marinade for Fish Recipe
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp light agave nectar
1 tsp rice vinegar (not rice wine vinegar)
1/2 tsp ground ginger spice
1/2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
Pinch of black pepper
Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk them together. Lay your fish in a single layer in a pan and pour the marinade over it. Turn the fish over so the marinade covers both sides. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before you grill the fish. This recipe makes a little over 1/4 cup of marinade.
