If you have seen my Grilled Tequila Lime Cod or Lemon Butter Herb Cod recipes, then you know I have a love for good fish. Every recipe and method of cooking requires the right fish to achieve the results you want.
Locally, we are landlocked, making fresh, tasty seafood difficult to find and often expensive. Sitka Salmon Shares gives us an affordable and delicious option that delivers directly to our front door.
My latest fish delivery consisted of Sablefish. You might have heard it called by its nickname – Butterfish. The texture of the fish is smooth and velvety. It’s buttery flavor makes it perfect to fry and put on a slider bun!
The fish are long-living, some found at 90+ years of age! Even though the meat is a delicate texture, it easily batters and fries. Smoking is the most-preferred way of preparing the fish because of the high oil content.

- Sour Cream
- Sweet Chili Sauce
- Sriracha Sauce
- Slider Buns
Tips & Tricks for Preparation of the Beer Battered Sablefish Sliders:
If you like less heat, lessen the amount of sriracha sauce you add or eliminate it altogether.
Rinse your fish and pat dry.
Cut the fish into 1-inch strips and season with salt.
In a medium bowl, mix the buttermilk and beer.
Add the pieces of fish and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
In a separate bowl, whisk the cornmeal, flour and creole seasoning together.
In a large pot, add 3 to 4 inches of oil in pot.
Using a clip-on thermometer, maintain a temperature of 350°F for the oil. If it cools down, wait for the temperature to climb back up before starting with frying a new batch.
Fry 4-5 pieces at a time for 4 minutes.
Remove the fish from the oil and drain on a wire rack.
Mix sour cream, chili sauce, and sriracha.
Spread on the top and bottom of the sliders. If you wish, you can toast these before adding the sauce.
