    2 tbsp lime juice
    1/4 cup mirin
    2 tbsp lite soy sauce
    to taste cracked peppercorn medely
    1 tbsp white miso paste
    1 cup of luke warm water
    2 tbsp clover honey

    With all do respect, this recipe sounds so heavy with way to many flavors going on. Oyster sauce with miso, mirin and soy + honey? this will not elevate the delicate flavor Cobia, but turn it into a TGIF special. I know I might be a bit harsh but you need to really look at your ingredients and composition.

    cobia is one of my favorite fish toeat.I find it has a very natural flavor ,fresh caught. The only thing I add is a light nutty flavor. I brown butter, scrape all the browning off the pan and grind with fresh garlic, lemon juice, make a paste and grill.
