  • 800 g cod fillet skinless, in 8 portions
  • 8 tbsp plain flour
  • 4 tbsp oil for shallow frying


  • 5 tbsp mirin
  • 5 tbsp miso paste
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp dry sherry I used French Pineau


  • Mix all the marinade ingredients together and pour over the cod.
  • Leave covered in the fridge to marinate, ideally overnight.
  • Dip the cod in the flour, back to the marinade, then back to the flour.
  • Heat about 1 cm of oil in a pan and fry over a medium heat  for a few minutes each side until crisp and cooked through.


Top tips
  • use a thicker piece of fish such as cod steaks or loin rather than thin fillets for best results
  • if using defrosted fish make sure that it is well drained before marinating
