We bring to your attention a simple but extremely effective dish with a slight Asian touch. Black cod meat is so tender that it melts in your mouth like butter, not without reason one of its names is “butterfish”.

Ingredients (per 1 serving):

  • Black cod fillet – 180 gr.
  • Olive oil – 30 gr.
  • Green Asparagus – 4 amount
  • Orange juice – 100 gr.
  • Butter – 10 gr.
  • Sugar – 5 gr.
  • Misso Pasta – 10 gr.
  • Coconut milk – 4 gr.
  • Honey – 10 gr.

Cooking method:

Fry the black cod fillet in a hot skillet in olive oil with the skin down to a crisp, transfer to a parchment-covered baking dish with the skin down. Lubricate the fish with marinade using a brush. Bake in the oven for 7 minutes at a temperature of 200 degrees. Before serving, carefully remove the bones from the fish with tweezers.


Misso paste, honey, coconut milk combine and mix until smooth.


We clean the green asparagus, then boil for 1.5–2 minutes. Immediately after heat treatment, asparagus must be cooled: it can be in cold water, but, ideally, put in ice water, then dried asparagus is dried through a paper towel, cut in half, salt, pepper, lightly grease with olive oil and bake for 3 minutes.


Freshly squeezed orange juice, filter from the pulp and evaporate by 50%, then add butter and sugar to taste (depends on the orange, the sauce should be sweet and sour), evaporate a little more until the consistency of the sauce.

Garnish a plate:

Put asparagus in the center, on top a black cod steak.

Pour the sauce on the cod in a circular motion around the composition and decorate with greens.


  • To avoid damaging them when working with delicate products such as fish and asparagus, use a sharp cook knife made of stainless steel.
  • The baking dish is best used ceramic, it better distributes and retains heat and in it your product is cooked evenly.
  • Checking fish readiness is very simple. If the bones are easily removed from the fillet, the fish is ready.

Bon Appetit!
