  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Servings: 2-4
  • Yield: 4 - 3 oz. servings


  • 12 ounces Alaska sablefish
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • ½ cup shredded scallions
  • ¼ cup cream
  • Sauce

  • ½ cup sunflower oil
  • 4 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 4 teaspoons ginger, grated
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 4 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons mirin
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste


  1. Step 1 Prepare the sauce

    Sprinkle sablefish with salt and set aside while you prepare the sauce. Heat sunflower oil in a small saucepan over medium. Sauté garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add remaining sauce ingredients, turn heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce to low heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

  2. Step 2 Cook the sablefish

    In a straight-sided sauté pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high. Add the sablefish and pan fry until both sides are golden. Add sauce and simmer for 5 minutes on low heat.

  3. Step 3 Cook the scallions

    In a small saucepan, pour in cream and heat until just below a simmer. Add the scallions and cook until softened, about 3 minutes.

  4. Step 4 Plate and serve

    Ladle the sauce into two shallow bowls. Cut sablefish into three, 4-ounce portions and place one piece in each bowl. Top with scallions and serve immediately.
