Miso Coley Recipe Alternative to Nobu's Miso Cod #SwitchTheFish

This is a simple and delicious fish recipe made famous by Nobu.
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time24 mins
Servings: 2 portions


  • 2 portions white fish fillets (use coley fillets or any alternative white fish
  • 3 tbsp white Miso
  • 3 tbsp Mirin
  • 3 tbsp Cooking Sake
  • 2 tbsp sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (depending on your oven)
  • Put the Mirin, sake and sugar in a pan and heat over a low heat until the sugar dissolves. Leave aside to cool.
  • Marinate the fish in this miso mixture and leave in the fridge overnight. In some recipes, they suggest that you leave it for up to 3 days. Even a 30 minute marinade would work but you won't get that depth of flavour.
  • When you are ready to cook the fish, wipe off excess marinade with your fingers and place on a lightly oiled roasting pan.
  • Cook in the oven for about 10-12 minutes (depending on the thickness of your fish and your oven) until the surface browns a little.
  • Serve with a bowl of Japanese rice, some pickles or a side of salad or vegetables.


You can substitute cod for coley or artic char.
