Bluefish, which is usually caught as bycatch—that is, few fishers go out looking for it—has a generally bad rap. When it comes to fish, let's agree that tastes vary. Some of us prefer milder fish that can carry a great sauce. Those who like the assertive flavor of wild king salmon and other such fish should enjoy
bluefish's persuasive combination of unapologetic flavor (think mackerel or sardines) and rich tenderness.
It is high in omega-3's, so is great smoked. If you don't have the smoker out yet, try it baked, broiled, or sautéed. Seafood Watch rates it a "Best Choice." Higher mercury level. Kosher.
