  1. Put a nonstick skillet that can be covered over high heat and add the oil; a minute later, add the fish and cover the pan. Cook for about 3 minutes and, in a separate bowl, combine the soy sauce, mirin, vinegar, sesame oil, about 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and 1/4 cup water.
  2. Carefully remove the cover and add liquid mixture. Cover again and turn the heat to medium. Cook until cod is done, about 3 minutes more. Turn off heat and let sit for a moment.
  3. Divide mesclun among 4 plates and top each portion with some fish and dressing. Grind black pepper over all and serve.
