Features

  • Skin-on / bone-in*
  • Certified Kosher (EarthK) Approved for Passover
  • Fishery MSC Certified for Sustainability
  • Monterey Bay Aquarium "Best Choice”

*Note: The delicacy of sablefish flesh precludes complete de-boning. Your purchase may contain some bones or fragments.


One customer called this rare treat "the chocolate of fish” — a creative description that captures its unique appeal!

Thanks to its sustainable harvest methods, sablefish (Anoplopoma fimbria) from the Alaskan fishery is categorized as a "Best Choice” by the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Super rich, and very forgiving

Wild Alaskan sablefish — also known as butterfish or black cod — is a superbly rich, silky delicacy.

Because it lives in deep, cold waters, sablefish accumulates far more fat — and omega-3 fatty acids – than most other fish, making it incredibly luscious and nutritious.

In fact, sablefish actually features more omega-3s than any wild salmon, except king.

And, thanks to its extraordinarily high fat content, sablefish is also more "forgiving” of chef errors than other fish.

Anyone – even folks unused to cooking fish, or who fear failure – can turn out perfectly baked, sautéed, or grilled sablefish!

What People Say

"Fabuluos !" Nancy D on 09/11/2020 09:14 Review: This is my favorite fish of all time. Vital Choice is so fresh and cooks up beautifully. It’s almost impossible to over cook sablefish. It’s so soft and flaky and stays very succulent.
"Sablefish" Renie Tharp on 09/03/2021 07:29 Review: Most flavorful Fish I have ever experienced ! Now my favorite! Very convenient in 4 oz portions.
"Delightful change from Salmon" Roe G on 08/27/2021 16:36 Review: Tried Sablefish after reading all the great reviews. I loved the rich sweet flavor and the ease in preparation. Did find several small bones so chew carefully. I really enjoyed this healthy, flavorful alternative to wild salmon.

Storage

Keep frozen at or below 0° F (-18° C). Vacuum-sealed fish held under these conditions should retain its quality for at least six to 12 months. Shellfish and lean white fish (halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish).

NOTE: Seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.

Thawing instructions

Thaw under refrigeration at or below 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius). Before thawing, puncture or remove packaging.

For quick-thawing, place frozen package in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, just until contents are flexible. Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate (if refrigerating, puncture package). Prior to cooking, do not allow fish to reach temperatures above 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius).

Cooking and Serving Tips

Federal regulations require this notice*: “Must be cooked to internal temperature of 165° F prior to serving.”

  • Rinse sablefish quickly in cold, clean water.
  • Cook in a medium-hot lightly oiled pan, under a broiler, or on the grill for 7-8 minutes – or bake 12-15 minutes at 375° F – until only the very center is still translucent.
  • Remove fish from heat and let it “self-cook” another two to three minutes, until just cooked through to center before serving.
  • Enliven your fish entree with seasonings such as Vital Choice Organic Salmon Marinade Mix or other herb-spice blends.
  • Add the seasonings of your choice to a little olive oil and marinate the fish, refrigerated, for 30-60 minutes or overnight. Or, simply mist fish lightly with olive oil or macadamia nut oil and dust with seasonings before cooking.

*NOTE: As long as it has been kept frozen, or refrigerated as instructed under “Storage”, above, it is safe to serve our fish raw or partly cooked, because flash-freezing has rendered it 100% sushi-safe.
