Sablefish (Black Cod) from Sitka Salmon Shares

Sitka Salmon Shares offer s a monthly box of freshly caught seafood from the waters of Southeast Alaska and the North Pacific.  In April I was sent a box of Alaskan Cod and I loved it! It was so fresh and delicious and has been my go-to for dinner ever since.

My May box contained Sablefish, also known as black cod. Sablefish is super healthy and contains more Omega-3 fatty acids than the popular salmon does. Since it is a fattier fish it is known to be more flavorful and is very good smoked.

I ended up pan-frying it with butter and garlic.

Because it had the skin I made sure to melt the butter first before placing the fish in the pan so it wouldn’t stick.

I have to say that it fried up beautifully!

I decided to pair it with Brussels sprouts and bacon.


Every month during fishing season, you get a box of wild-caught Alaskan seafood hand-delivered right to your door by one of their affable and well-mannered Sitka Salmon Stewards or their friends at Fed Ex. Are you ready for fresh seafood to be delivered to your door?
