Wild Caught Black Cod
October 9, 2012 - Fearlessly Archived - Still a fun read, price & availability may have changed.
Also known as sablefish or butterfish, Trader Joe's Black Cod is a soft, flaky, mild-flavored, buttery-textured white fish caught in the deep, cold waters of the North Pacific, off the coast of Oregon. With cooked texture similar to Chilean Sea Bass and Omega-3 content similar to wild caught salmon, Black Cod is a versatile, healthful fish that can be prepared pretty much any way you prepare fish. Try it baked, broiled, grilled, sautéed, fried, or even microwaved. Season it just a little, to let the sweet, mild flavor of the fish really shine.
We're selling fillets of sustainably-fished, wild-caught Black Cod in random weight packages (anywhere from about eight to 14 ounces) for $12.99 a pound, every day. If you've shopped for this flaky, delicate fish elsewhere, you know what a tremendous value this is! You'll find it in our freezers.
Fun fact: Though known as Black Cod, this fish is not a member of the cod family. Go figure.
