Product Preparation

The tender texture and sweet flavor of butterfish make it ideal for broiling and baking. You can also gently sauté it with a dusting of flour, finishing it off with a squeeze of lemon and fresh flat leaf parsley. Thanks to their miniature size, most chefs don't even bother filleting them! Keeping it simple is best when preparing butterfish.
