How it’s made: You’ll find sablefish, also referred to as black cod, swimming in the icy waters of the north Pacific Ocean.
Nutrition perk: Sablefish flesh is rich in mega-healthy omega-3 fats like those found in salmon and sardines. Beyond supporting hearth health, omega-3 fats can help promote weight loss, especially when paired with an aerobic-exercise program.
Need to know: A high oil content means sablefish does not have a long shelf life, so it’s not always easy to find a fresh catch. However, ask your fishmonger for frozen cuts, which are also of high quality.
How to use it: Similar to other white-fleshed fish like halibut and tilapia, sablefish fillets can be steamed, broiled, poached, seared in a skillet, or tossed on the grill. It’s ready to embrace all sorts of salsas, glazes, marinades, and spice rubs.
