Seafood recipes-Teriyaki Butter Sauced Black Cod

Teriyaki sauce can be arranged in many ways. This time I combine with brown butter! I love having white meat fish with this aromatic butter sauce.. Slightly burned butter gives significant depth to the flavor. Speaking of browning, soy sauce also can be also put through this kind of cooking process.
