Miso Black Cod Gindara/Chilean Seabass

This savory and buttery miso Gindara is hands down the best marinated fish recipe on the planet!  There is nothing that compares to the unique flavors that come out of this delightful and simple dish.

Miso Black Cod Gindara Chilean Seabass

Long before well known restaurants such as Nobu started serving their famous miso Gindara, my grandma was making it in her kitchen and serving it to her family!

It was an easy dish to whip up consisting of only a few ingredients and therefore made often.  Naturally, the recipe was passed down to my mother and then to me which by the way, my kids gobble!

So, I’m here today to share this family recipe with you!  And, it just so happens that it’s low-carb/keto as well!

We start by mixing Awase Miso (AKA brown miso) and sake together to form a thick paste.  Then we combine that with the fish in a ziplock bag making sure all parts of the fish are fully covered.

Just make sure you’re using Awase Miso and not white or red miso, as those will result in a paste too salty or too heavy in miso flavors.

Then we let it marinate in the refrigerator for 24-36 hours and simply bake for 8 minutes in the oven!

Accompany the fish with a side of veggies or topped over cauliflower rice to make this a complete low-carb/keto meal!  Simple and easy!

Other than Gindara, Chilean sea bass works great for this dish!  We actually make this more with Chilean sea bass as it’s more readily distributed here in the States.

The one thing to note about this marination is that it takes 24-36 hours (don’t go over 36 hours), so we recommend making a batch and after the fridge marination, throw it in the freezer and it’d hold for 2-3 months.

For this recipe, the special ingredients you will need are Awase Miso AKA Brown Miso and Japanese Sake.   Note – White miso would be too salty for this marinade.

Here is the sake we normally use for reference.  You can substitute the Japanese sake for Dry Sherry if needed.

You can purchase everything else on Amazon.
