Sablefish (Winter Catch)

Share Size

Sablefish is sometimes called "butterfish," and for a good reason––it's ultra rich, buttery flesh is richer than virtually any other species. My sablefish has a distinct flake, a lovely ivory color, and a flavor like no other. While extremely rich and flavorful, my sablefish does not have a strong fish taste. There is simply nothing like it.

Preorder Preorder Period:

Your seafood will ship March 21 or 22 and arrive a few days later.
 This page details shipping rates:

I offer my sablefish in portions only. Portions are about 1 lb. each, but as small as 0.75 lbs. or as large as 1.25 lbs. each.

Sablefish has a few non-dangerous pin bones which can be pulled before or after cooking. While the collar portion (the portion toward the head) does have a row of pin bones, the tail portion (triangular) typically has few or no pin bones. Most customers receive a mix of both types of portions.

I vacuum seal my sablefish in heavy 4 or 5mm bags. Your fresh-frozen seafood will keep in your freezer in pristine condition for at least 8 months.

    Kodiak, Alaska or Southeast, Alaska.
