Sablefish with Shallot Vinaigrette and Herb Salad Recipe

Smoked Sablefish and Alaskan Sablefish

Fresh Sablefish is one of our favorites, its amazing rich flavor (not fishy!) stems from the ample body fat that Sablefish accumulate to survive frigid, deep-water environments.

Sablefish is very high in omega-3s, with each 4 oz portion averaging a whopping 1.6 grams—more than most wild Salmon!

The Vital Choice Sablefish is amazingly delicious – just writing about it makes my mouth water. It is certainly my favorite or all the white fleshed fish.

Smoked Sablefish

The “oven-ready” 4-oz portions are NOT cooked fully by the smoking process. They will cook through in 6-7 minutes using medium-high heat. No nitrites or artificial additives or preservatives. Certified sustainably harvested

Alaskan Sablefish (Black Cod)

Alaskan Sablefish is highly prized overseas, and the vast majority of the harvest is exported, making it a relative rarity in domestic markets. These fillets are lean, low-calorie fillet portions, firm and fully moist, with a large flake. The delicate, slightly sweet flavor of Pacific cod harmonizes with a wide array of sauces, seasonings and recipes. Strict official oversight combines with this species’ natural fecundity to keep Alaska’s certified-sustainable Pacific cod fishery an abundant resource.

We have found the best fresh wild fish to come from Vital Choice Seafood, we have enjoyed their wild caught fish for years. Never soggy or mushy, never fishy-smelling, we are proud to represent Vital Choice Seafood on our site – Bon Appetit!
