From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

(*Crème Fraiche (Fresh cream) is a thick cream that is acidified with a bacterial culture, but not as sour or thick as sour cream. Crème fraîche was originally a French product but is today available throughout Europe. The main difference between cream and crème fraîche is that the crème fraîche is not homogenized. Therefore, the crème fraîche is well suited to boil, which the sour cream is not since it is easily crack by cooking.)

Sablefish in a Tomato Bowl

Before Baking

Servings: 4       Time: 40 – 60 min.      Difficulty: Easy

First I like to give you some small information about the Sablefish, (Gindara as I know it.)

Sablefish, (Anoplopoma fimbria) dear child has many names: Gindara, Beshow, and Skilfish (CA), Black Cod (UK, USA, CA), Blue Cod (UK), Bluefish (UK) Butterfish (USA), Candlefish (UK), Coal Cod (UK), Coalfish (CA), and others.
The sablefish is found in muddy sea beds in the North Pacific at depths of 300 to 2,700 m (980 to 8,860 ft)
In the USA, the FDA accepts only “sablefish” as the Acceptable Market Name if not changed lately.
The white flesh of the sablefish is soft-textured and mildly flavored. It is considered a delicacy in many countries. When cooked, its flaky texture is similar to Patagonian toothfish (Chilean sea bass). The meat has a high fat content and can be prepared in many ways, including grilling, smoking, or frying, or served as sushi. Sablefish flesh is high in long-chain omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. It contains about as much as wild salmon.

My first meeting with Sablefish (Gindara) was in The Philippines where it was served boiled.
Later I have tried it fried and I must say both dishes tasted very good. Then I found out that I like to bake the fish in the oven, so here we go. Try this recipe with Gindara ( Sablefish ) in tomato bowl with potato, garlic, chili and onion. The only thing that takes time is the time it needs in the oven.
