Ingredients for Alaskan Cod Misoyaki Fish Burger

  • 6 tablespoons mirin
  • 6 tablespoons sake
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup white miso
  • Six 6-ounce Alaskan cod fillets, 1-inch thick
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups Japanese rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 piece dried kombu or dried kelp
  • 6 cups arugula
  • 2 red radishes, thinly sliced (roughly 18 pieces)
  • 2 tablespoons pickled red ginger (beni shoga)
  • 6 brioche burger buns

Directions for Alaskan Cod Misoyaki Fish Burger

  1. For the miso sauce and marinade: Combine the mirin and sake in a pot and bring to a boil to burn off the alcohol. Add the sugar to the mixture and dissolve. Add the miso and cook until a light caramel color is achieved. Remove from the heat and cool completely. Once completely cooled, separate out the amount desired for drizzling on the burgers.
  2. For the cod: Rinse and pat dry the cod fillets before marinating. Take the remaining amount of miso marinade and rub it over the fish. Cover and marinade in the fridge for 2 days.
  3. For the amazu dressing: Combine the sugar, rice vinegar, salt and kombu in a pot and bring to a simmer to mix thoroughly. Remove from the heat, cover and refrigerate for 24 hours. After 24 hours, remove the kombu.
  4. For the amazu salad: Toss together the arugula, radishes and pickled red ginger in a large bowl. Toss with the amazu dressing.
  5. Remove the cod from the fridge and remove any excess miso marinade off the fish. Broil on medium-high heat until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes.
  6. For the burgers: Toast the brioche buns. Add 1 piece of broiled cod fillet and drizzle the reserved miso sauce over the fillet. Top with 1 cup of the amazu salad.

  • Fish – Fish are aquatic, craniate, gill-bearing animals that lack limbs with digits. Included in this definition are the living hagfish, lampreys, and cartilaginous and bony fish as well as various extinct related groups. Around 99% of living fish species are ray-finned fish, belonging to the class Actinopterygii, with over 95% belonging to the teleost subgrouping.The earliest organisms that can be classified as fish were soft-bodied chordates that first appeared during the Cambrian period. Although they lacked a true spine, they possessed notochords which allowed them to be more agile than their invertebrate counterparts. Fish would continue to evolve through the Paleozoic era, diversifying into a wide variety of forms. Many fish of the Paleozoic developed external armor that protected them from predators. The first fish with jaws appeared in the Silurian period, after which many (such as sharks) became formidable marine predators rather than just the prey of arthropods.Most fish are ectothermic (“cold-blooded”), allowing their body temperatures to vary as ambient temperatures change, though some of the large active swimmers like white shark and tuna can hold a higher core temperature. Fish can acoustically communicate with each other, most often in the context of feeding, aggression or courtship.Fish are abundant in most bodies of water. They can be found in nearly all aquatic environments, from high mountain streams (e.g., char and gudgeon) to the abyssal and even hadal depths of the deepest oceans (e.g., cusk-eels and snailfish), although no species has yet been documented in the deepest 25% of the ocean. With 34,300 described species, fish exhibit greater species diversity than any other group of vertebrates.Fish are an important resource for humans worldwide, especially as food. Commercial and subsistence fishers hunt fish in wild fisheries or farm them in ponds or in cages in the ocean (in aquaculture). They are also caught by recreational fishers, kept as pets, raised by fishkeepers, and exhibited in public aquaria. Fish have had a role in culture through the ages, serving as deities, religious symbols, and as the subjects of art, books and movies.Tetrapods emerged within lobe-finned fishes, so cladistically they are fish as well. However, traditionally fish are rendered paraphyletic by excluding the tetrapods (i.e., the amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals which all descended from within the same ancestry). Because in this manner the term “fish” is defined negatively as a paraphyletic group, it is not considered a formal taxonomic grouping in systematic biology, unless it is used in the cladistic sense, including tetrapods. The traditional term pisces (also ichthyes) is considered a typological, but not a phylogenetic classification.
  • Main Dish
  • Broiling – Grilling is a form of cooking that involves dry heat applied to the surface of food, commonly from above, below or from the side. Grilling usually involves a significant amount of direct, radiant heat, and tends to be used for cooking meat and vegetables quickly. Food to be grilled is cooked on a grill (an open wire grid such as a gridiron with a heat source above or below), using a cast iron/frying pan, or a grill pan (similar to a frying pan, but with raised ridges to mimic the wires of an open grill).Heat transfer to the food when using a grill is primarily through thermal radiation. Heat transfer when using a grill pan or griddle is by direct conduction. In the United States, when the heat source for grilling comes from above, grilling is called broiling. In this case, the pan that holds the food is called a broiler pan, and heat transfer is through thermal radiation.Direct heat grilling can expose food to temperatures often in excess of 260 °C (500 °F). Grilled meat acquires a distinctive roast aroma and flavor from a chemical process called the Maillard reaction. The Maillard reaction only occurs when foods reach temperatures in excess of 155 °C (310 °F).Studies have shown that cooking beef, pork, poultry, and fish at high temperatures can lead to the formation of heterocyclic amines, benzopyrenes, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which are carcinogens.Marination may reduce the formation of these compounds. Grilling is often presented as a healthy alternative to cooking with oils, although the fat and juices lost by grilling can contribute to drier food.
