There are a wide variety of delicious seafood recipes out there, but consumers should note that  sablefish, found in the North Pacific and very popular in Alaskan, Canadian, British, and Japanese diets, also goes by a variety of other names, including butterfish, black cod, bluefish, and coal cod. The delicate texture and rich flavor of this ocean protein, regionally known as black cod, has yielded comparisons to sea bass, and the fish is chock-full of the anti-coronary disease fatty acids, omega-3s. Black cod is harvested in the pure, icy waters off the shores of Alaska from March through November, making it a very well-priced, available product. The market, however, is controlled by environmentally-conscious regulations, meaning that Alaska black cod is not just tasty and economical, but also sustainable.

For some interesting recipes, why not try Alaska, or black cod, with Asian ginger lime sauce? Simple to prepare, the filets can be cooked stovetop with a splash of vegetable oil and some chopped garlic, while the sauce is a combination of garlic, chopped serrano chiles, sugar, and ginger, pounded into a paste, and added to a quarter-cup of fish sauce and a dash of lime juice.

Curry black cod is another tasty, hearty-healthy option, as is the exquisite Alaska sablefish with a sugarcane marinade that is prepared with a variety of tropical ingredients such as fennel, sugar snap peas, pearl onion, and fresh ginger and cilantro, along with a homemade spiced lobster broth. The exotic broth is crafted from a combination of peanut oil, lobster stock, Thai red curry paste, ginger root, and rock sugar, which are blended together and simmered on the stove. Serve roasted filets over dished lobster broth and the vegetables for an exotic platter with a heart-healthy Alaska black cod base.

Still need some more sablefish recipes? Consider a recipe with the poached variety, served with a mustard-infused bread pudding or a full seafood spread with smoked fish, Alaska king crab, and shrimp risotto. Another delicious gourmet meal can be prepared from Alaska black cod filets with rich peppery Sofrito, cooked white beans, littleneck clams, and chopped chorizo.

All of these are sure to be certain crowd pleasers. Head to the kitchen today to get started on your way to a great meal!
