Honey Lime Sablefish with Jalapeno Corn Salsa

This honey lime sablefish, also known as black cod, is topped with a spicy jalapeno and fresh corn salsa for a healthy but incredibly flavorful and easy meal.

I hated fish as a kid. Like to the point of screaming tantrums when my parents would try to get me to eat it. It just completely grossed me out and I downright refused to eat any of it. I actually worked myself into the one and only asthma attack I’ve ever had in my life during a shrimp stir-fry dinner (no joke, emergency drive to the doctor at 8pm, EpiPen and everything) which resulted in everyone thinking I was allergic to shellfish until about 8th grade.

Honey Lime Sablefish

While I still will scream like a 4 year old girl if a fish gets to close to me in the water (you can imagine my reaction when snorkeling in Tahiti on our honeymoon and an eel popped out of a rock about 1 inch from my face), I’ve since more than made up for the fact that I spent the first 14 years of my life as a seafood hater. I’m even a raw oyster fanatic as of late. So when I was in Alaska last month and one of our first group dinners involved black cod, I was kind of surprised I’d never heard of it or had it. Sure, I’ve heard of and eaten plenty of cod before but black cod, aka Sablefish, is not the same. One bite into the black cod/Sablefish at dinner and I was hooked. It had an Asian flavored sauce on it and just pretty much melted in your mouth. The fishermen we were eating with talked to us about how it was a locally caught wild fish they sometimes enjoy (when not eating salmon) as a delicacy almost and I knew I had to find a way to get some at home.
