Physical description: Approximately 1.25 lbs of wild caught Alaskan Sablefish. These fish, also known as butterfish or black cod, have a high oil content providing a silky consistency along with incredible flavor that is often compared to Chilean Sea Bass. Once you try it, you’ll understand why it’s called butterfish. This one is a seafood favorite among customers and our team members.
Cooking: This fish should be cooked to well done, or until it starts to flake. If you’re prone to overcooking fish, this one is a foolproof choice for even the most novice cook. Our favorite preparation is with a marinade of white miso, sake, mirin and sugar. However, this fish is delicious no matter how simply it is prepared. Try it grilled, pan seared, or baked. Great on its own or on top of a salad. Sablefish is also a very popular choice for smoking. When smoked, it practically melts in your mouth.
Nutrition Information: This luscious fish is very high in healthy fat and the omega-3 fatty acids EHA and DPA. This healthy fat content is great for brain function, respiratory and heart health. It’s also an excellent source of protein and selenium. Sablefish is not only delicious – it’s extremely good for you too.
Fishing Practices: These fish are 100% wild and natural, no additives what-so-ever. Thriving in pristine and cold waters, wild caught Alaskan Sablefish is a much more sustainable choice than Chilean Sea Bass. Our fishery returns tens of millions of salmon each year, managed for sustainability by law and careful practices.
