This is the romantic entree for your special Valentine. This fish, along with grilled or steamed asparagus and a small salad, is a no hassle dinner that will impress! Sablefish, also known as black cod, is a delicate fish that is so wonderful that it needs no special accompaniments. Baked simply, it is elegant and rewarding, making the evening meal a special event. It has a rich and buttery flavor, but is still heart healthy because it is a denizen of the deep ocean waters and is rich in Omega-3s. Be aware that some small bones may still be embedded in the fillets. Once baked, they are easily removed by the attentive diner.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 7 ounces sablefish fillets
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar (could be flavored, such as Fig Balsamic Vinegar)

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.

  3. Pour oil into heat-proof pyrex or ceramic baking dish.
  4. Place fillets in the baking dish.
  5. Bake in pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes, until the fish is opaque. Oil should be slightly sizzling around the bottom edges of the fillets.
  6. Place each fillet on the serving plate.
