Butterfish may be small and flat (about 8 ounces) but they’re a big hit for those who prefer a delicate seafood taste. That’s because this high-fat fish has a very tender, smooth texture and a rich, sweet flavor – almost buttery!

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.
