Four Ingredient Miso Glazed Cod

Fish is a so easy to make as a last minute dinner. Whether its for your family or a dinner party. A short amount of prep work yields tremendous flavor, with very little hands-on time. While fried fish (ok, fried ANYTHING) is super yummy, baked fish is incredibly moist and flavorful, without the guilt. The key is to never overcook your fish. If it’s undercooked, you can always put it back into the oven for a few more minutes, but once it’s overcooked and dried out, there’s nothing you can do to bring it back to life.

These cod fillets cook in less than 15 minutes. Bake them in the bottom of the oven for 8 minutes and then broil them for 4-6 minutes. Four ingredients and 12 minutes for a delicious fish entree… C’mon, you can do it!

Enjoy!
