Descriptions, sources, and eco-factors for the West's tastiest sustainable seafoods
Recipes: 3 ways with fresh sablefish
Taste Soft, sweet, and moist, with fat, pearly white flakes. Similar to and just as delicious as overfished Chilean seabass.
Source Pacific Ocean, California (okay) to Alaska and Western Canada (better)
Eco factor The population is plentiful, and it's caught using ocean-friendly traps, especially in Alaska. Plus, it has more omega-3 fatty acids than almost any other fish.
How to choose Look for fresh or frozen fillets with soft, lustrous flesh and an oceanlike aroma.
