I've never cooked it myself but my good friend
Tony and I used to go to "The Only Seafood" on east Hastings and though the halibut cheeks were my favourite there I would often get the smoked black alaskan cod. MMmm good stuff to be sure.
I used to smoke sablefish myself. Used to get it by the bucketload. They can be a big fish 20 or so lbs. kinda cool looking. And fight pretty had too. You would pick them up sport fishing for halibut as well.
All we we did was a coarse salt and white sugar and water brine then smoke.
Havent had it since then.
black cod = sable fish
you guys can drop the Alaskan! Lol
thats like calling a Chinook a black mouth
black cod or its true name sablefish
Columbias are Black mouths..... Stamp is Chinook, and Spring and Smily......Tyee has been abused as a term for a 30+ Chinook..... Tyee's are caught in the Tyee pool in Campbelriver from a row boat with no Riggers and single barbless.... there are more gear restrictions but i cant remember them all..... and you do not get into the "Tyee club" without ding this!!!!
people need to get their Damned Fish straight! lol
