Amino Glazed Cod

When we lived in Boston, Henry and I used to visit Oishii Sushi on special occasions. The chef used to prepare this fantastic warm glazed black cod for us. …one of the tastiest morsels that we’ve enjoyed on our culinary journey. A short while back, we discovered a cool coconut company that sells Coconut Aminos and Crystals among other great stuff. On our recent trip to the Bay Area, we were going to visit them, but unfortunately ran out of time.

So Henry, my little chef, decides to experiment with creating a glaze, that actually turned out to taste much like the glaze that we remember from Boston. Amazing!!

It is a perfect complement to the texture and flakiness of the cod. The glaze penetrates the beautiful white flesh just enough to give it a light amber hue of perfection. The taste is out of this world, sweet and subtle – this is a must try for sure for anyone who loves fish and Japanese inspired glaze.

    This amino glaze is delicious. Where do you obtain the cocunut crystals and aminos? Or what is a good substitute?


    1. Hello Richard, one of my absolute faves 😉 we typically buy ours online from or at WF, where you can find a variety of coconut crystal choices. It’s great because of its’ low GI. So happy that you’re loving our food. Best! Jo
