This Week’s Fresh Catch:

Monday & Tuesday: 
Black Cod Fillets
Black Cod has a smooth, velvety texture and large, yet delicate, flakes. Flavor: Rich, satiny sweet, buttery taste courtesy of the high oil content. The high oil content of sablefish makes it ideal for smoking – it won’t lose its flavor or texture in the process. Black cod can handle high heat and stays moist and buttery on the inside even with a hearty crust on the outside. 

Wednesday – Friday:
Steelhead Trout
Steelhead has a mild trout taste with tender, flaky and soft flesh and delicate flakes. Its taste is similar to Salmon. It’s excellent grilled, baked, seared, broiled, and pan fried.

Simple Pan Seared Black Cod – Steelhead Trout:

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat in a large, preferably non-stick, skillet. Season fish generously with salt and pepper. Cook skin-side down for 4-5 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Gently turn fish and cook another 2-3 minutes. Set fish aside to rest. Cover loosely with foil to retain heat, not tight to keep the crispy crust 

Top with a Lemon Thyme Butter Sauce

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, 3-4 small sprigs of thyme, Pinch of salt, 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cut into 1 tablespoon pieces. Add lemon juice, thyme, S&P in a medium skillet. Bring to boil cook till reduced to half. Remove thyme sprigs, reduce to low add butter. Swirl pan to slowly melt butter before adding remaining butter. (Note: slowly melt the butter to get the silky sauce, instead of melted butter.)
