Sablefish, which is also known as black cod or butterfish, is a sustainably caught fish that comes mostly from Alaska, though it is also abundant in parts of the Pacific Northwest. Marinating it in miso, the umami-rich paste made with soybeans, rice, and/or barley, is a traditional preparation, but the marinade is also wonderful slathered on other kinds of fish, chicken, and pork. Serve the sablefish with sweet pickled sushi ginger, toasted sesame seeds, and daikon sprouts.

Black cod is so delicious, and also forgiving because the agreeably oily flesh is nearly impossible to overcook. I only wish it were easier to find. This classic treatment is the best.
