Sablefish (Black Cod) Fillets

(12 customer reviews)

Alaskan Sablefish, Black cod Fillets

Boneless –  Petite fillets (under 1 lb avg.)


Lot Number: 184451A-1 Categories: , , Tags: , , , ,


You’re in for a treat when you order sablefish online from Lummi Island Wild. Our Sablefish (Black Cod) is also known as butterfish – a nickname that aptly describes its richness. Caught in waters nearly 2,500 ft. deep, we source our black cod off Alaska’s pristine coast using just a hook and line. The fillets we prepare are boneless and skin-on, and they typically weigh around under 1lb.


Tips for Preparing Sablefish

If you’re new to sablefish, here’s a traditional Black Cod with Miso recipe from Food & Wine. A signature at many sushi and fish restaurants, this sweet-savory dish has been cloned by chefs all over the world. The recipe creator, Nobu Matsuhisa, marinates the black cod in the sake-miso marinade for two to three days. If you don’t want to wait that long between when you order sablefish online and when you can eat your catch, the fish is also spectacular with a quick, overnight marinade – just enough time to coat the skin in sake and miso.

If you’re in the mood for a lighter, simpler sablefish preparation, we recommend a quick pan sear. Butterfish is delicious when blackened. To do this, heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Season the fish with some salt and pepper, then cook skin-side down for between 4 and 5 minutes. Turn the fish over and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, then allow to rest.


Handling Instructions – Black Cod 

Customers who order sablefish online from Lummi Island Wild can expect skin-on and boneless fillets. Our fish ships frozen, which helps preserve the meat’s flavor and texture. When you order sablefish online from us, expect it to be packed and shipped with dry ice to maintain a safe temperature.

Once the fish arrives, you can allow it to thaw and keep refrigerated for up to 7 days. If you want to save your Alaskan Black Cod fillets for a special occasion, they will stay good while frozen for around two months. Keep in mind that sablefish has a higher fat content than other types of seafood, which means it will spoil faster, even when frozen.

    One of the best fillets that I’ve ever had. The entire family loved it.

  2. Aurora (verified owner)

    Seriously perfect fish. Arrived at our door here in Hawaii on time & still frozen. Fillets were huge, bigger than expected, we ordered 5lbs and savored every bite. Literally melt in your mouth perfect. We cooked it Nobu style miso marinaded usually 8hrs -& sautéed in butter, unreal. 10/10 would recommend to a friend & order again. A total treat. Mahalo

    The sablefish was absolutely fantastic! Arrived beautifully packaged and iced, and when I cooked it, it was wonderfully delicious. I’ve eaten sablefish for years, and this was my first time with Lummi. Wonderful job, Lummi! I’ll be ordering much more from you, and have already shared with others.

    Fabulous! I made Milk Street’s recipe for Roast Cod with Tahini-Herb Butter. So delicious. Delivery was prefect. Have 2 friends on board to order from Lummi Island

  6. S.E. Martin (verified owner)

    Absolutely luscious. Quick sautee in ghee, just to gild the lily.

  7. Lauren (verified owner)

    My favorite fish to buy and cook at home. Nothing beats it.

  8. Lexi (verified owner)

    The whole family loves these sablefish fillets. I only wish they were a little larger, for 4 people. I usually bake in the oven, on parchment in a large glass dish, with a coating of miso marinate (miso, minced fresh ginger, tamari, mirin, rice vinegar, sesame oil) because for me it’s a quick meal and I don’t plan ahead 2-3 days, or even 1 for an overnight marinade. It’s still great.

    Made miso marinated black cod – fantastic! I highly recommend this fish.

  10. Elizabeth (verified owner)

    Fish was packed properly and was still frozen even though it sat at my front door for an hour. The fish was delicious and cobbled down by my son and me. I roasted some fennel and carrots and onions in olive oil and herbs then added the cod on top bathed in curry butter and finished the roasting. Yum

  11. Stephen Colen (verified owner)

    The best tasting cod ever. Understandably called butter fish
    Great blackened. A new favorite for a long time Nantucket fisherman.

  12. Dan Milsky

    My favorite fish of all time. Shipping was great and product was pristine.
