Sable was once referred to as “poor man’s sturgeon,” but don’t let the old moniker fool you. With its melt-in-your mouth flavor and buttery texture, sable is served in some of the best restaurants around the world. It is also classic appetizing. Line caught in Northern Pacific waters, this black cod is smoked to Russ family specifications and then dusted with a thin coat of paprika to lock in its natural moistness and round out the flavor.

Please note that due to carrier issues, Russ & Daughters is unable to ship to Hawaii.

More Details

Chubs, brook trout, and whole whitefish all contain bones. We do our best to remove the majority of bones when we fillet (de-bone) a whitefish and when we slice sturgeon and sable. We make no guarantee that these fish will be completely free of bones or cartilage.

Sable arrives sliced, and easy to plate.

Note: All Russ & Daughters fish are deboned. We do our best, but we do warn you that the odd bone sneaks through.

This product is not eligible for discounts or promotions, unless otherwise noted. Also, it cannot be purchased with promotional gift cards or referral credits.


Sable – Sable, Salt, Sugar, Paprika, Natural Hardwood Smoke

Arrived on time w/ great instructions on how to freeze the salmon. Bagels lasted 1 day! Great housewarming present.
Betsy B. - Biltmore Lake, NC
What was there not to like about it? Every. Single. Item..was packaged, wrapped, chilled and packed perfectly to reserve what is easily one of NYC's best deli/bagel stores. My only critique would be the timing of the arrival of baskets. I can see Russ and Daughters packs them the night before in Brooklyn for delivery the next day. Since R&D has a lot of tasty breakfast foods, Goldbelly needs to offer the option of delivery by ~10am as an option.
Basil M. - Wallingford, CT
Love the convenience and that I could get my daughter NY bagels in TN for her birthday!
Alexandra D. - Johnson City, TN

The bialys, which are difficult to buy where we live are wonderful! And the smoked salmon has much more taste than what I buy in the supermarket.

Barbara A. - Fernandina Beach, FL
We enjoyed our order from Russ and Daughters with former New Yorkers. We all decided that this should be something we do more often. The salmon was delicious! We don't have the luxury of such quality here in New Mexico. The bagels, bialys and cream cheese were wonderful too. The order arrived as scheduled, in perfect condition. Love the insulated bag from Russ and Daughters.

Anders O. - Amherst, MA
Delivery was perfect--GB kept me apprised of shipment progress, packaged it well, order received safely and in the same outstanding quality it would have been as if I had gone in person to Russ & Daughters store in lower Manhattan--but without enduring the endlessly boring drive (with tolls) on the NJ Turnpike.
Bruce S. - Arlington, VA
Excellent quality. On-time. Nice and cold. The Belly Lox, the Sable, and the Sturgeon were packed very well.
Mark B. - Houston, TX
This was a birthday gift for my brother-in-law. He and my sister lived in lower Manhattan for many years. They are retired now and birthday gifting is challenging. So, thanks to gold belly, I was able to give him a NY deli dinner; no airplane, suitcase, hotel or NY taxi needed! He loved it!
Paul M. - Mentor, OH
