Korean Cod

  • Rating:


1lb cod fillets (we had 2 fillets)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tsp gochujang (Korean hot pepper paste)
2 tsp Korean red pepper flakes
1 tbsp minced garlic
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp sesame oil
juice of 1 lemon
toasted sesame seeds
1 scallion, white and green parts, thinly sliced


In small bowl, combine the gochujang, Korean red pepper flakes, garlic, soy sauce, sugar and sesame oil. Stir and set aside.

In large pan, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and heat over medium high heat. Add cod and cook 2 minutes per side, flipping very carefully. Squeeze juice from 1 lemon to the fish. Add the prepared sauce to the pan and reduce heat to medium. Continue to cook until the fish absorbs most of the sauce, about 3 more minutes.

Sprinkle with green onions and serve.
