Black Cod — spring & summer
Black cod a.k.a. Sablefish a.k.a. Butterfish has an intensely rich and buttery flavor (hence the moniker). With a pearly-white color, velvety texture, and high fat content, black cod is easy on the eyes and ideal for smoking—a treatment relished by the early Makah Tribe on the Northwest coast, who smoked the silky fish over green wood.
