A well kept secret of the cold Pacific waters of Alaska is the delicious Black Cod. Known also as Sablefish or Butterfish, this fish is very rich in healthy oils. These fish oils contain the essential long-chain omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, making the Black Cod as nutritious as wild Salmon! The flavor is mild and the texture flaky, similar to Patagonian Toothfish,(Chilean Sea Bass.) Unlike the Toothfish, however, Black Cod is abundant and the fishery is well managed. There is little danger of over-fishing, or harm to the environment. The rich oil content means Black Cod is very versatile and can be cooked many different ways. Chefs suggest broiling, grilling, baking, smoking, frying or sushi. However you enjoy it, Black Cod is sure to please!Sablefish
