Sautéed Sablefish (Black Cod) with Shallot-Lemon Vinaigrette and Fresh Herb Salad; Zesty Herbed Almonds
We owe the idea to run today's scrumptious Bon Appétit Sablefish recipe to Vital Choices reader J. T. Smith of Houston, Texas who found it at Epicurious.com.
T. J. posted this enthusiastic endorsement of the recipe and our Sablefish: “I cooked the fish on the stove top in some of the marinade, and it was simply outstanding!!! One of the most delicious foods I have ever prepared (in many years of cooking)!!! I used wonderful sablefish from Vital Choice for this and will definitely make it again.”
