Low-FODMAP Japanese Glazed Black Cod; Gluten-free, Dairy-free

Print Friendly Version

This low-FODMAP Japanese Glazed Cod was inspired by an amazing black cod I ate at the divine Nobu restaurant several years ago.  While I eliminated the miso, I still love the flavor of this low-FODMAP Japanese Glazed Cod recipe.

I like to enjoy fish twice weekly and this is my go-to recipe for an easy and healthy low-FODMAP Cod dinner, with a hint of sweetness.
