Butterfish: Better than Salmon?
You have probably been buying and eating salmon for years, knowing that its omega-3 fat content is nice and high to help protect you against heart disease. However, have you heard about wild Alaskan black cod (also known as sable, butterfish or bluefish)?
By my book, anything that is known as butterfish has to be good.
This fish can contain as much as 50% more omega-3 fats than salmon and has a very mild flavor (as opposed to salmon which can be too fishy for some tastes).
For anyone who is concerned about fish populations (and that should be everyone who likes to eat fish!) this is an abundant and sustainable fish because it has been well managed.
