Grilled Sablefish or Black Cod is sweet and buttery with a smooth texture. Brushed with garlic and herb butter for a simple and delicious meal that you can feel good about feeding your family.
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.
- 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.
- Pat fish dry with paper towels and place skin side down over indirect heat.
- Brush fish with garlic butter and close the grill lid. Cook 8- 12 minutes or until internal temperature of fish reaches 145°. Fish will be flaky.
- Serve immediately with Cucumber Tomato Salad and grilled asparagus for a healthy and delicious dinner that the whole family will enjoy.
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.
