Ingredients and Method


  • 4 cod fillets
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated, peeled fresh ginger
  • coarse salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 scallions, green parts cut into 3 inch lengths


  1. In a large skillet, combine 3 tablespoons rice vinegar, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, and 2 tablespoons finely grated peeled fresh ginger.
  2. Season both sides of 4 skinless cod fillets (6 to 8 ounces each) with coarse salt and ground pepper; place in skillet with vinegar mixture. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to a gentle simmer. Cover; cook until fish is almost opaque throughout, 6 to 8 minutes.
