In addition to 2 species of Wild Alaska Salmon, we have a small batch of Black Cod Filet and Halibut Cheeks in stock! We’ll have a nice selection available at both our favorite Phoenix Farmers Markets this weekend. Advance orders are welcome. We are now scheduling pick up appointments at our Phoenix Tasting Room (near Thomas Rd & 44th St).
Black Cod, also known as Sablefish, is a deep water, oily, delicious, buttery whitefish. It actually has more omega-3 oil than all salmon species except for sockeye. Many compare its rich flavor to sea bass. This is our favorite meal for special occasions such as our anniversary & birthdays. We highly recommend this fish due to its sustainable harvest methods, superior nutrition, and incredible flavor.
Halibut Cheeks are the actual facial muscle of the halibut and considered a delicacy by many. I like to cook them like sea scallops. On the stovetop over medium high heat, I sauté the cheeks in olive oil & butter just a few minutes per side. We typically serve halibut cheeks over a large spring green salad, dressed with lemon juice, capers, olive oil, sea salt and fresh ground pepper.

I love the halibut cheeks!
