Fun Fact

Draggers report catching several times as many butterfish by night as by day, suggesting that they are active enough to dodge a trawl, except during the hours of darkness. The butterfish for sale at FultonFishMarket are wild caught in the USA, meaning they live in their natural habitat until safely captured for your consumption.

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.
