For Cleanse and Gut
Serves 2


1-2 8 ounce cod fillets per serving (so 4 if you’re serving two people)

For the Marinade

1/4 cup chickpea miso paste

1/4 cup mirin (rice wine) or you can use white wine*

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

2 tablespoons wheat free tamari

2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated

2 tablespoons sesame oil


3 scallions, oven roasted with the fish

*mirin is easily found at most health food stores or ethnic markets


Preheat oven to 350F

Whisk together all ingredients for the marinade.
Place the fish in a glass or stainless steel dish and cover with the marinade. Let sit for 20-30 minutes, and keep checking so you can spoon the marinade back over the fish if it slips off.


Transfer the fish onto a parchment lined baking pan, pour the marinade over the fish, then place into the oven, along with the scallions.


Cook for 10-12 minutes, until the fish is cooked through and the scallions are browned and tender. Be sure not to overcook, as fish is best very tender.


Remove from the oven and serve immediately, garnishing with the scallions.
