Roasted or Grilled Fish with fresh peach salsa is a great way to usher in summer!
If you’ve never tried roasted sable fish also known as black cod or butter fish, you are missing out on a real treat.
I have partnered with Sitka Salmon Shares with my instagram account to share the good news about wild alaskan fish. Delivered frozen to my door at the peak of freshness, I have ever been disappointed with my bo.
I’ve shared a few of their dishes before. This baked black bass is one of my favorites made with summer vegetables, olives and capers.
This time I’m making a sable fish recipe with a peach salsa. The sable fish was part of Sitka Shares (Alaskan Wild Seafood) box.
What is Sable Fish?
Sable Fish is a delicate deep sea fish that is high in fat and very buttery. It’s sometimes called butter fish and sometimes called black cod, although it’s not a member of the cod family.
Sable fish has a mild, buttery taste and is adaptable to many recipes. The fish we received had a bottom skin, easily removed and no bones.
How to Prepare Sable fish
Sable fish is easy to prepare, due to it high fat content. I did a quick pan fry with skin side down and then stuck it in the oven for another five minutes. Topped with savory peach salsa, which also cuts through the richness of this fish.
Peach salsa is easy to make. I used fresh Peach Truck peaches, red onion, jalapeno pepper, tomato. You can make this to your own taste.
Peach salsa is a great topper for any seafood. It could also be used for seafood tacos.
How to Defrost Frozen Fish
The fish comes packed in plastic. I simply submerge in cold water for about 15 to 20 minutes. You could place from freezer to refrigerator in the morning, and it will be ready for you at dinner time.
Roasted Fish Tacos
Sable Fish makes the best roasted fish tacos because the fish is mild and tender and adapts well to any kind of salsa.
