Black cod (also known as Sablefish or Butterfish) is a gourmet with a rich buttery taste and a silky, delicate texture. It is found on the menus of the world’s most exclusive seafood restaurants. Although it is popular throughout the world, Japan is where it is most famous.
Black Cod can be found from Alaska to northern Mexico, but it is more common in Alaska. Alaskan black cod is different from regular cod due to Alaska’s frigid waters. Cold temperatures cause a higher fat content and Omega-3 fatty acid levels. Alaskan Black Cod is also sustainably sourced. Special provisions have been put in place to keep Alaskan fish populations healthy and prevent overfishing.
It is easy to bake black cod, and you will need minimal effort. Here’s how I like cooking black cod. You won’t believe how delicious this fish is compared to other varieties.
