I Made this Asian Sesame Cod Recipe And Sis, You Gotta Try it

This is easily my Top 5 weeknight seafood recipes! - Nicole Orisich

I'm a natural born soul-food cook raised by women from North Carolina. However - I'm also a recipe girl.

A few years ago I owned a boutique strength training studio for women, and the studio had a group chat set up for the members.

Food was always the star of the chat and one day one of the ladies posted a photo of her dinner which was this bomb ass looking cod dish.

Well, she didn't have a recipe so I ended up searching for one and came across this one from the Taste of Home website.

I've been making this recipe since 2018 and here's a recent video of me making it here!

Asian Sesame Cod


  • 1 pound cod fillets

  • 1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth

  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1-1/2 minced garlic

  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning

  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted

Note: These are the ingredients as listed from the original recipe. I swap/change/edit ingredients every time I make this.


  1. Place fillets in a greased 8-in. square baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the wine, onions, brown sugar, ginger, vinegar, soy sauce, oil, garlic, and lemon-pepper. Spoon over fillets; sprinkle with sesame seeds.

  2. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
