Passion Fruit-Miso Glazed Cod



Easy-to-make and full of flavors, this recipe is a Latin-Asian fusion with an interesting mix of ingredients:  passion fruit, sake, soy sauce and roasted garlic. Sweet, with just a hint of tartness, this delicious cod is perfect over a bed of jasmine rice. Also try the marinade with pork, chicken or salmon. Enjoy!

Serves 4


  • 2 tablespoons roasted garlic (see Cook's Notes)
  • 4 tablespoons white miso
  • 1 cup passion fruit jam (see Cook's Notes)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup sake
  • ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 cod fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons scallions, finely chopped


In a large sealable container, mix roasted garlic, white miso, passion fruit jam, olive oil, sake, and soy sauce. Set aside.

Place cod fillets in the marinade container. Seal and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Transfer cod fillets to on an oiled, ovenproof pan. Season with black pepper and cover with marinade. If using a regular oven, bake 13 to 15 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork. If using a convection oven, bake 10 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork. Transfer fish to individual plates and top with sauce and scallions. Serve immediately with a side of jasmine rice.

Cook’s Notes:

If sauce is still thin by the time the fish is ready, remove fish and transfer sauce to a sauce pan and reduce over medium heat, until desired thickness is reached.

If passion fruit jam is unavailable, apricot jam can be used as a substitute.

This marinade also works well with pork, chicken or salmon.

How to Make Roasted Garlic:

• Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

• Peel away outer layers of garlic bulb skin, leaving skins of individual cloves intact. Using a knife, cut off ¼ inch of top of cloves, exposing individual cloves of garlic.

• Place garlic heads in a baking pan (muffin pans work well for this purpose). Brush each head with olive oil. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake 25 to 35 minutes, or until cloves feel soft when pressed. Remove from oven and let cool.

• Using a small knife, cut skin slightly around each clove. Use a cocktail fork or your fingers to pull or squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins. They are ready to be enjoyed!
