Wild Pacific 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 fish, making it incredibly luscious and nutritious.

Lightly brined, and infused with the smoky essence of natural alder wood, our golden-hued, "oven-ready” Pacific sablefish is a treat for your senses!

Super rich, and very forgiving

Sablefish provides many more omega-3s than any other white fish. In fact, sablefish 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

"Hi Randy... I LOVE the sablefish, had never tried it before, must have more. Thank you for all you are doing… will be ordering soon.”

"Smoked Cod" Everest Lam on 09/12/2021 15:24 Review: The best smoked cod. It's so moist after I put in oven at 400 for 8 minutes.
"Amazing taste!" Linda Boris on 06/23/2021 17:05 Review: Had the smoked sablefish filets tonight for the first time. I pan seared them in a little bit of olive oil. I was amazed not only by the delicious and delicate smoky flavor, but how buttery it tasted! I didn't cook with any butter at all but this fish tasted like I did.
"Best Smoke Sable" Cheryl Brown on 03/26/2021 05:31 Review: By far the best fish I have brought. Whole Foods has the MSC but this wild caught far surpasses WF. I have brought it multiple times and will continue to stock up monthly.
Ingredients:

Wild Pacific Sablefish (AKA black cod, butterfish), sea-salt, natural wood smoke.

Contains 1175mg omega-3 fatty acids per 113g serving. 360mg EPA • 550mg DHA

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° F (3° 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 145° F prior to serving.”

  • Lightly brined, and infused with the smoky essence of natural alder wood, our golden-hued, "oven-ready” Pacific sablefish needs only a few minutes cooking, and it's ready for your table. Oven ready sablefish is partially cooked by the smoking process.
  • Pat dry with paper-towels
  • Cook in a medium-hot lightly oiled pan, under a broiler, or on the grill for 5-7 minutes – or bake 8-10 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.
