Dawn’s Broiled Black Cod
Prep: 10 mins | Total: 20 min
Dawn Young is a Sitka fisherman through and through. She comes from a long line of fishermen, married a fisherman (her husband Mark has been fishing since 1979!), and raised her two daughters to fish alongside her and Mark. While Dawn and her family spend most of their time fishing, in their free time they participate in the subsistence lifestyle - hunting and fishing for their food, canning and preserving what they can. Knowing where their food comes from is important to them and they pass these values down to their children and grandchildren. Dawn appreciates simple recipes that pack a lot of flavor, ones that she can pull off at the end of a long day fishing. This recipe for broiled black cod delivers on those promises!
