Fatty, Flaky-textured Fish
The flesh of fatty fish is darker in color and usually packs more nutrients (including heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids) than leaner choices. It also tends to have a "fishier" flavor.
This excellent Hawaiian fish tastes like a buttery halibut. Unfortunately, it contains a natural laxative and eating it can cause serious gastrointestinal distress. Because of this, several governments (though not the US) have either banned its importation or required that it be sold with warning labels. A workaround is to eat only small (four ounces or less) portions of the fish, or to bring a change of clothes if you're dining out.Learn more
