What Makes Sablefish so Healthy?

Sablefish (also known as Alaskan Black Cod) is a favorite in our house! We consume it on a weekly basis. Sablefish might be new to you, but fishermen have been harvesting this fish since the late 1800s. It’s known as the “chocolate” of fish due to it’s delicious buttery texture and flavor!

But let’s get to the nutrition facts here. What makes sablefish so healthy?

  • High in the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which have tremendous heart and brain health benefits.
  • Cold water fish - higher in good fats, which can lower blood pressure and improve overall blood cholesterol levels.
  • Rich in nutrients like Vitamin B12
  • Low in mercury 

Are you ready to cook with this buttery dish?

My favorite sablefish recipe is pretty simple and pairs perfectly with a summer salad.

Ginger Lime and Tamari Sablefish

  • 2 sablefish fillets
  • 1/4 cup gluten free tamari sauce
  • 2-4 tbsp lime juice
  • grapeseed or other oil of choice. Sesame works too if you want more of an asain flare
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • black pepper and sea salt
  • 2-3 slices of fresh ginger.
  • Optional- chili pepper seasoning
  • Note: if you don’t have tamari you can use gluten free soy sauce or even balsamic vinegar


  1. Clean your fillets and then place on baking dish.
  2. Next combine your gluten free tamari sauce, lime juice, oil, honey, ginger, black pepper and sea salt (about 1/4 tsp each for seasoning). Mix in a bowl then drizzle over your fish fillets. There will be some juice that is sitting in dish while baking.  Be sure to leave out the ginger till the last few minutes.
  3. Roast at 400F for about 10-15 minutes. I usually cover with foil for the first 8 minutes then uncover for the rest when I add my ginger.
  4. Optional -Garnish with chili pepper flakes/seasoning
