Recipe Note

White fish are fish with light, white, flaky flesh whose main concentration of oils is located in the liver. They are naturally low in fat, and an excellent choice for those looking for a healthy option. White fish includes cod, haddock and related species as well as all flatfish, and many of the exotic species - the list is extensive.
