  • ¼ cup Tamari (or soy sauce)

  • ¼ cup Mirin (Japanese sweet wine)

  • 1 Tbl. sugar or maple syrup

  • ½ Tbl grated fresh ginger root

  • Cooking spray or foil


  1. Mix tamari, mirin, sugar and ginger and marinate fish at least 30-minutes (up to a couple hours is fine).

  2. Make sure the upper oven rack is in the 2nd (not closest) notch from the top.

  3. Preheat broiler for 5- to 10-minutes.

  4. Place fish on broiler pan (which—for easy clean up—you’ve either covered with foil, or sprayed with cooking spray).

  5. Place fish under broiler and broil approximately 5-minutes per side (depending on the thickness of the filets).

  6. Fish will flake easily with a fork when done.
