Brush black cod steak with a mixture of 1 tablespoon sesame oil and shoyu. Place over coals and grill for about 7-8 minutes on each side.

Blend 1 tablespoon shoyu with honey, dry mustard, and mirin or sake. Let the sauce sit for 10 minutes then taste; add more mustard powder if you like it very hot.
