Grilled fish is one of our favorite meals and it is so incredibly easy. I grew up in my family’s catfish restaurant where everything was deep fried. Of course I still love fried fish but I have come to love grilled fish even more.

We have partnered with Sitka Salmon Shares for summer and received samples for recipe development. 

Knowing where our food comes from and supporting small business is very important to our family as small cattle ranchers. Sitka Salmon Shares are wild-caught from the pristine waters of Southeast Alaska and the North Pacific and delivered.

Our latest box was full of Sablefish also known as Black Cod. It was a huge hit with the whole family and has an amazing velvety texture with a buttery flavor. 

How to Grill Sablefish:

  • Prepare a grill fire to about 350° with oak or pecan wood for smoke flavor. 

Garlic Butter with parsley in a skillet

  • Make garlic butter by melting butter in a small skillet with minced garlic. Cook for 3 minutes, remove from heat and stir in chopped parsley. 

Black Cod on the grill

  • Pat fish dry with paper towels and place skin side down over indirect heat.

How to Store and Reheat:

Store leftover sablefish in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic wrap in the refrigerator up to 2 days. 

Reheat in a skillet with olive oil or butter over medium heat, covered about 5 minutes or until heated through. 

What is Sablefish or Black Cod?

Sablefish have more omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids (the good, heart-and-brain-healthy kind) than any other fish found in Alaska. The result is a sweet, buttery flavored fish with a velvety smooth texture that has only recently become a delicacy in the United States.

Sitka Salmon Shares Story

Sitka Salmon Shares is built around a humble collective of committed fishermen that put quality first, handling fish one at a time, with respect and care. It’s their livelihood, afterall, and many of our fishermen have been using these highly selective, small-batch fishing methods for generations. Read on to know your fishermen—from how they got started, why they love life on the open water and why they are part of Sitka Salmon Shares.

Ten seasons ago we set out to “do salmon differently.” At that time, doing things differently seemed simple. We brought blast-frozen, wild-caught Alaskan salmon directly from a few small-boat fishermen to members of our Community Supported Fishery (CSF) in the Midwest. In return, our members got higher-quality fish than they could find at a grocery store while supporting community-centered, small-boat fishermen who harvested their fish one-at-a-time on hook-and-line.

Wild-caught from the pristine waters of Southeast Alaska and the North Pacific, Sitka Salmon Shares are delivered right to your door with no contact delivery. 

Sitka Salmon Shares has some amazing box deals going on right now that you won’t want to miss!  Use the code MITK for a $25 discount on your first order. We have been so impressed with the cod, salmon and sablefish that we have tried. It is definitely better quality than we have ever found from our grocery store.
