Sablefish — known in the Pacific Northwest as “black cod” — remains unknown to most people.
This luscious fish is unrelated to cod, being a totally separate species that's far richer in fat and omega-3 fatty acids.
Its status as the richest white fish around explains its alternate nickname: “butterfish”.
Most people are fully satisfied with a 4 oz portion of this wonderfully fatty fish, whose stratospheric omega-3 levels rival those of king salmon.
