About Wild Pacific Sablefish

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 other white fish, making it incredibly luscious.

In fact, it equals or exceeds wild salmon for fat and omega-3 content.

"Excellent... except" Nancy M on 09/22/2019 18:14 Review: 2/3 of the package was excellent, 1/3 appeared to be a different cut or tougher portion of the fish (ligament or muscle fiber)? The bottom layer of the package. The slices looked different and had a stringy/chewy center. Not inedible just unable to bite through without pulling the entire piece. I will order again to see if same is true of all... and go from there. - Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear some of the 4 oz portion of lox was not as expected. Our Customer Service Team will reach out to you today.

"variable quality" EM on 08/06/2018 12:24 Review: I really enjoyed the first package of this I tried, so I ordered the duo pack. Unlike that first package which was firm and silky, the one I tried out of the duo was waterlogged and mushy in taste and texture. Pretty gross. Hopefully my remaining two packages will be more like the first. - Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear your disappointment in this product. Our Customer Service Team will follow up with you regarding this order. Thank you, The Vital Choice Team

Keep frozen until ready to serve. Thaw overnight in refrigerator, or for faster readiness, place unopened package in cold water for 30 minutes or until the smoked fish is flexible.

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).

Serving Tips

Smoked sablefish is as safe as cooked fish, thanks to the natural, salt-mediated curing process and flash-freezing.

  • Serve as you would smoked salmon, on a bialy, whole grain bagel, thin-sliced dark rye bread, or crisp rye cracker such as Wasa Bread. Spread the bagel, bread, or cracker with light cream cheese or avocado and top the salmon with thin tomato slices and/or capers and fresh basil leaves.
  • Crumble chunks into scrambled eggs with chopped, quick-sautéed chives, scallions, or bell peppers.


Keep frozen until ready to serve. Thaw overnight in refrigerator, or for faster readiness, place unopened package in cold water for 30 minutes or until the fish is flexible.
