Black cod, which also known as sablefish, is a rich white-flesh fish with a moist, succulent texture. Even though this fish is marketed as "black cod," it is not a true cod. Black cod has one of the highest levels of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, which give them their silky and rich texture and flavor.
Cooking your Black Cod
- Black cod is too rich for dishes like ceviche, but black cod can be eaten as sushi, or sliced thin raw and dressed with some lemon juice and sea salt.
- Its high fatty content makes it forgiving to the novice cook. It does well grilled, smoked, broiled, poached, in crudo, roasted, or slow-cooked in a confit.
- Choose fish that is firm and pearly white, and has a clean smell, like the ocean. (thekitchn.com)
