Sablefish, often simply called sable, are charcoal-colored fish found deep below the water’s surface. This mysterious fish is one of the most sought-after available. Aesthetics alone set the sablefish, also known as the black cod, high above its competitors as it has a fascinating charcoal black skin with a contrasting bright white meat. There are few fish that can compete with the rich omega-3 content that sable boasts. The high levels of the fatty acid give the meat of sable the most delectable texture; before you chew the first bite, the meat will have already begun to melt away, letting the flavors permeate your mouth. The oily nature of sable is also what makes it a perfect fish for smoking as it will retain its moisture and prevent it from drying out through the smoking process.
Sable, when smoked as a whole fish, can be eaten in many ways: alone, atop a bed of steamed green veggies, as an appetizer, or a main! Sable smoked fish luxuriously enhances any meal it is added to, the whole fish on your table will look exquisite!
