Honey Garlic Marinated Sablefish (Black Cod) | Sitka Salmon Shares

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min
Total time: 12 hr 20 min
Serves: 2


  • 1 fillet sablefish (black cod)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon togarashi (or 1/4 teaspoon black pepper)



Place fish into plastic storage bag and pour marinade ingredients on top. Marinate in fridge for at least 12 hours (up to 24 hours).

Cook fish

Preheat oven to 400 °F degrees.

Remove black cod from marinade and pat off excess with paper towel.

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in an oven safe skillet. Place black cod skin-side up and sear for 3 minutes.

Carefully flip the cod over, cooking skin-side down for an additional 3 minutes.

Place skillet in oven and cook for 5 – 7 minutes, until fish is flaky. Remove skillet (carefully!) from oven.

Serve immediately.

Dana’s tip: serve the black cod with homemade pork and edamame fried rice, and garlic bok choy.
