Low-FODMAP Japanese Glazed Black Cod; Gluten-free, Dairy-free

Printer Friendly Version

This low-FODMAP Japanese Glazed Cod was inspired by an amazing black cod I ate at the divine Nobu restaurant several years ago.  While I eliminated the miso, I still love the flavor of this low-FODMAP Japanese Glazed Cod recipe.

I like to enjoy fish twice weekly and this is my go-to recipe for an easy and healthy low-FODMAP Cod dinner, with a hint of sweetness.

  • 4 x 6 ounce black cod fillets or regular cod fillets
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar

  • Remove from fridge and lay in casserole dish
  • Place casserole under broiler for 3-4 minutes until glaze is carmelized
  • Remove from oven and brush with remaining glaze
