Black Cod

Black Cod (Sablefish) fillets are perfect for indoor or outdoor grilling.

This is a fish with a rich buttery flavor and very high in Omega’s. Try this simple marinade which doubles as a glaze;

3Tb honey
3Tb Mirin or rice vinegar
1Tb Lemon juice
1Tb Miso
1tsp grated ginger
1 clove grated garlic (1/2 tsp.)
2tsp. toasted sesame oil

Mix all ingredients and marinate fillet for 1/2- 2 hours
Place fish on hot grill and cook until flaky (about 6 minutes per side)
While the fish is cooking bring the marinade to a slow boil, reduce heat and simmer until it thickens.
Drizzle the marinade over the cooked fish and garnish with green onion.

This recipe pairs well with a chilled dry white wine like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. Also pairs with slightly sweet varieties like American Chardonnays, Rieslings, Viogniers and Pinot Gris.

Kris, glad you found the recipe!
We certainly enjoy the buttery-rich flavor of Sable fish, and the glaze is a delicious and versatile condiment as well.
