  1. Prepare greens

    In a pan, melt butter with garlic until butter turns golden brown. Add spinach and pinch of nutmeg, salt, and black pepper. Cook just until wilted.

  2. Marinate fish

    Combine honey, soy sauce, grapeseed oil, and vinegar in a bowl. Stir and place black cod fillets in the bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.

  3. Roast fish

    Preheat the oven to 450°F. Remove fish from marinade and season with salt and black pepper. Place fillets on a cookie sheet and cook in the oven until they have a golden/dark-brown hue and are cooked through, about 7 to 8 minutes.

  4. To serve

    Spoon wilted spinach or pea leaves equally between 6 plates, top with fillet and spoon some marinade over and around the fish.
