Tips for Preparing Black Cod Steaks
Sablefish has a high fat content, making it an ideal fish for smoking. The meat’s natural oils ensure it won’t lose any flavor or texture in the process. If you’re in the mood for something a bit simpler, pan-roasted black cod is an easy, delicious option.
Some who have our fresh black cod delivered might have an eye toward tradition. Historically, black cod has been cooked with miso and sake. If you’re interested in trying this preparation, here’s a traditional Black Cod with Miso recipe from Food & Wine. This is a signature plate at sushi restaurants around the world; the sweet-savory fish dish has been cloned by chefs from California to Australia. The recipe’s author, Nobu Matsuhisa, marinates the black cod in a good deal of the sake-miso marinade for two to three days. This fish is also spectacular if you marinate it only overnight in just enough sake and miso to coat.
Handling Instructions – Black Cod
Our fresh black cod is delivered frozen. The steaks are bone-in and skin-on. If you thaw the fish, it will stay good in a refrigerator for up to 7 days. If you choose to keep the fish frozen, it will keep in a freezer for around two months. Keep in mind that sablefish’s high fat content means it will spoil faster than other types of fish.
