Province Icons2 13 Sablefish Pacific Coast BC


Also known as: Black Cod

Sablefish, often called "black cod" (despite not being a type of cod), is a deep-sea treasure from Canada's Pacific coast. Primarily found in the cold, deep waters off British Columbia, it’s characterized by its dark skin and velvety white flesh.

When it comes to taste, the sablefish truly shines, making it a highly sought-after delicacy for seafood lovers internationally. Its flesh is rich, buttery, and flaky, with a melt-in-your-mouth quality that seafood aficionados rave about. Often smoked or grilled, it's also a popular choice for marinating, given its ability to absorb flavours beautifully. With its unique and luxurious texture, a sablefish recipe promises an unforgettable dining experience.
