Butterfish may be small and flat, but they're a big hit for those who prefer a delicate seafood taste. Our butterfish for sale is a high-fat fish with a very tender, smooth texture and a rich, sweet flavor similar to butter!
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.
Butterfish is a good source of protein, vitamin A, calcium, potassium, and iron.
