Cumin-Crusted Sablefish

Most crazy-delicious reader-submitted recipe ever.

We made an important update to this recipe, changing it for sustainability. It originally called for Chilean sea bass--and although you can sometimes find a sustainable type of that fish (longline-caught in the McDonald and Falkland islands), sablefish (also known as black cod) and white sea bass are consistently good choices with a similarly rich, buttery texture. It's worth the tiny bit of effort to toast and grind your own cumin seeds--the flavor payoff is huge.
