Question for Fisher(wo)men

I've been rereading my Julia Child cookbooks for inspiration and remembered that years ago I had some spectacular Dover Sole in England.

Is there a similar firm-fleshed whitefish available from a Rosarito fishmonger that I could use for the butter sauté recipe?

Halibut is great but expensive, sand bass or white fish is good, winter fish to use is rock fish ,red Rock is the best but any rock is good . Stay away from sheephead or barracuda, perch, mackerel. Tuna or yellow tail is good but not for what you want.

ask for Blanco which is a whitefish that is very very popular here ....the cooperativa fishes for them and it is a wonderful fish and they should have it there.

Do ling cod occur that far south? I would trade two pounds of halibut for a pound of ling cod any day!

If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

Yes ling cod is available you can catch them with rock fish and a good choice. The blue meat is a little off putting but cooks up white and sweet.

Depends on how the meat is cooked. Halibut is dense and has less water than rock fish or ling cod. I though sole, being a deep water fish was dense also like black cod.

I think Shari's rec would be a good start. Buy the whole fish so you are sure what you are getting. Popotla is the best place for fresh fish.

post the recipe.
