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.

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

Super rich, and very forgiving
Sablefish provides many more omega-3s than any other white fish.

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!

"Fabulous Black Cod" Sarah on 06/11/2018 09:35 Review: As always, Vital Choice provides an excellent product. It came packed with ample dry ice so there was no thawing (a potential problem with the early heat in the West). My husband and I are big fish eaters so the portion was just right for the two of us. The 12 ounce portions are most economical. Something we will order and again especially given its omega - 3 FA profile.

"SABLEFISH" Joanj M on 06/01/2018 04:36 Review: I had never tasted this fish before I was very surprised that everything you said about it was true.loved it

"Alway amazing! Buttery, flaky light white fish - best fish ever" Sunday on 05/20/2018 03:56 Review: We love VitalChoice’s Alaskan Sablefish. Its light, buttery, mild delicate texture makes it an easy go to for our family. My husband and I split the 12oz portion. It does have small bones so, it’s better for ages that can pick out a fish bone.

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.
