About our black cod.
Our 6 oz wild Alaskan black cod portions are the perfect size for an individual meal serving. The portions have a buttery, sweet flavor with a delicate flaky texture. The high concentration of healthy fatty acids give this fish its distinctly decadent flavor.
What makes our black cod special?
Our black cod comes from our trusted partners Seth and Chris at Yakobi fisheries in Southeast Alaska. This fish can live up to 90 years, spending its life in the frigid waters of the North Pacific at depths of up to 5000 feet. It is sustainably caught using long line fishing gear. Interestingly, black cod is not part of the cod family, leading to the Sablefish name becoming more widely recognized.
What about the health benefits?
Years spent in the deep cold waters gives black cod more omega-3 fatty acids than most salmon species. This delicious whitefish is the perfect option if you're looking to add some heart and brain healthy variety to your weekly menu. The omega-3s are primarily DHA and EPA, the most studied, beneficial and readily usable by the body.

Black Cod portion recipe
Seafood continues to cook after it’s removed from the heat, so take it off just as soon as it starts to flake. We often tell our customers that if they think their fish is almost done cooking-- it’s done! Slide a sharp knife tip into the center of the thickest part of a cooking salmon portion, checking for color and an internal temperature of at least 145°F. Black cod is delicate, for best results you should pan fry, sear or bake it. Black cod should only take a few minutes to cook.
- Rinse and pat fillets dry.
- Spread a thin coat of cooking oil over salmon portion.
- Coat bottom of an oven-safe pan with cooking oil.
- Sprinkle seasonings over fish.
- Bake in 375°F oven for 10-12 minutes per inch of thickness.
