Kyuquot Sound Sablefish

Floating sea pens, Canada

We are very excited about this sablefish (black cod). Normally we are only lucky enough to get wild sablefish once or twice a year, but it is very expensive and extremely hard to find fresh (most sablefish is shipped to Japan). 

Kyuquot Sound Sablefish are raised near Vancouver Island in partnership with the First Nations. The fish are fed FAO-certified organic feed (no hormones, no GMOs), and they are harvested on demand using a traditional Japanese method. Further, the company raises shellfish and kelp downstream, which filters the waste and purifies the water. 

Despite its common name (black cod), it is not a member of the codfish family. Its high fat content makes it extremely flavorful and very forgiving when cooked. Sablefish is high in polyunsaturated fat which is good for low-cholesterol diets. It has milky white flesh and a buttery texture, and it can be cooked in many ways. Our favorite recipe is Chef Nobu Matsuhisa's Black Cod with Miso. Moderate mercury level. Kosher.
1 lb for $26.00

MSC Haddock

Trawl or line caught, East coast

Haddock, cod, and pollock, though related are different fish. Haddock tends to be slightly thinner than cod and has a finer flake. Some compare the taste to that of halibut, and in fact most chefs prefer the flavor of haddock to others in the cod family. It is perfect for fish and chips, but if you'd rather a healthier option, try roasting it with fresh vegetables. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Moderate mercury level. Kosher.
