Crispy Broiled Sablefish

Photo: Marcus Nilsson; Styling: Victoria Granof
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet)
Also known as black cod, sablefish is a fantastic substitution for its endangered cousin, Chilean sea bass, because it has similar rich flesh. However, it can be difficult to find and sometimes expensive. If you can't find it, substitute halibut.

  • 1 cup cold water
  • 3 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 (6-ounce) sablefish fillets
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/2 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 1 tablespoon orange rind
