  • Details



    • Skin-on / bone-in*
    • Certified Kosher (EarthK) Approved for Passover
    • Fishery MSC Certified for Sustainability
    • Monterey Bay Aquarium "Best Choice”

    *Note: The delicacy of sablefish flesh precludes complete de-boning. Your purchase may contain some bones or fragments.

    One customer called this rare treat "the chocolate of fish” — a creative description that captures its unique appeal!

    Thanks to its sustainable harvest methods, sablefish (Anoplopoma fimbria) from the Alaskan fishery is categorized as a "Best Choice” by the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

    Super rich, and very forgiving

    Wild Alaskan 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 fish, making it incredibly luscious and nutritious.

    In fact, sablefish actually features more omega-3s than any wild salmon, except king.

    And, thanks to its extraordinarily high fat content, sablefish is also more "forgiving” of chef errors than other fish.

    Anyone – even folks unused to cooking fish, or who fear failure – can turn out perfectly baked, sautéed, or grilled sablefish!

    "Best Service Great Fish" Mary Winkle on 07/15/2020 20:41 Review: I really love this fish. Its better than the market fish. When my first order got delayed in shipping and melted, they sent a replacement shipment faster than I could say 'firecracker'. And its delicious. I never had sablefish before. Its rather rich. But good! Of course, the salmon is the BEST! SO GOOD!!

    "Best white fish ever" Francis B on 03/12/2020 15:33 Review: OK, wow. My wife is not a huge fish eater. I love Salmon. I bought this thinking the flavor would be something she likes. Did New York Times cooking recipe. I am awful at cooking fish. Dredged in flour, salt and pepper. couple of minutes each side in cast iron. Best ever white fish. Have traveled the world and eaten a lot. This was amazing. She loved it.

    "Mouth Watering Luscious" Ali B on 08/30/2019 13:47 Review: I thoroughly enjoyed the Wild Alaskan Sablefish. I never had it before other than as a lox-type dish. It is amazing!!! What a treat.

  • Serving/Care


    Keep frozen at or below 0° F (-18° C). Vacuum-sealed fish held under these conditions should retain its quality for at least six to 12 months. Shellfish and lean white fish (halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish).

    NOTE: Seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.

    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).

    Cooking and Serving Tips

    Federal regulations require this notice*: “Must be cooked to internal temperature of 165° F prior to serving.”

    • Rinse sablefish quickly in cold, clean water.
    • Cook in a medium-hot lightly oiled pan, under a broiler, or on the grill for 7-8 minutes – or bake 12-15 minutes at 375° F – until only the very center is still translucent.
    • Remove fish from heat and let it “self-cook” another two to three minutes, until just cooked through to center before serving.
    • Enliven your fish entree with seasonings such as Vital Choice Organic Salmon Marinade Mix or other herb-spice blends.
    • Add the seasonings of your choice to a little olive oil and marinate the fish, refrigerated, for 30-60 minutes or overnight. Or, simply mist fish lightly with olive oil or macadamia nut oil and dust with seasonings before cooking.

    *NOTE: As long as it has been kept frozen, or refrigerated as instructed under “Storage”, above, it is safe to serve our fish raw or partly cooked, because flash-freezing has rendered it 100% sushi-safe.
