Gochujang-Glazed Black Cod Recipe

Gochujang-Glazed Black Cod

Serves 6

If you haven’t already, you’ll want to get acquainted with gochujang, a fermented chili paste from Korea. Its flavor—a mixture of sweet, sour, and heat—pairs beautifully with black cod in our recipe. Served alongside our Sesame Kimchee Slaw, it makes for a beautiful presentation.


  • 1/4 cup Metropolitan Market Maple Syrup
  • 3 Tbsp gochujang
  • 3 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp white or yellow miso
  • 1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 lb black cod, cut into 6 pieces
  • Coarse salt, for topping


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, gochujang, lime juice, tamari, miso, vinegar, and sesame oil.
  2. Place fish in a single layer on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Spoon about a tablespoon of the gochujang mixture onto each piece of fish. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes (or chill for up to 1 hour).
  3. While fish marinates, place remaining gochujang mixture in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 1-2 minutes, until it reduces and thickens slightly. Remove from heat. Set aside half to use as a sauce after cooking.
  4. Preheat broiler. Spoon remaining half of the sauce on fish. Broil for 8 to 10 minutes, until fish is opaque and flakes; watch closely so fish does not burn.
  5. Place fish on serving plates. Top each with a small pinch of coarse salt and drizzle with more sauce, if desired. Serve with Sesame Kimchee Slaw.

“Overall this was delicious! i had steelhead trout so cooked a little less time. next time i would use less maple syrup and more soy sauce, as it was a little sweet for me, but still yummy!”
