VIDEO RECIPE: Peanut Butter Miso Glazed Cod

VIDEO RECIPE: Peanut Butter Miso Glazed Cod

This recipe is loosely based on a miso cod recipe that originally appeared and became famous from Nobu’s restaurant years ago. 

The introduction of peanut butter to the dish gives a classic nutty flavor that brings some sweetness to round out the salty umami flavor of the miso. This easy interpretation of the well-known dish is a perfect choice for entertaining and dinner parties.
