Mentioning that it is peak season for these fish, tuna tops the list. For health benefits, you can’t make a better choice than tuna. High in protein, tuna is also especially abundant in omega-3 fatty acids. It is also a superb source of vitamin B12, which assists in the formation of new red blood cells. When you want to put your health at the forefront, go with tuna.

If you’ve ever tried swordfish, you may rejoice that it’s peak season for these fish. Swordfish are naturally oily, thick, and meaty. Like tuna, you can enjoy nutritional benefits galore from swordfish. With the rich supply of omega-3s, it’s a great choice if you are looking for heart-healthy meals.

Swordfish are sold at the fish counter like thick cuts of steak. Favorite preparations are grilled steaks with herbs or marinades. The flavor of swordfish is super mild. You can grill, bake, or broil swordfish, pairing it with many different types of marinades, sauces, and toppings. Bon appétit offers an online recipe for Grilled Swordfish with Tomatoes


It is also peak season for cod, which has a mild, sweet, and delicate flavor profile. The firm, meaty flesh is also flaky. Cod is a favorite for many who shy away from the strong, fishy seafood taste. Cod is a lean fish with few bones, and it’s best to cook it with moist heat so that it is better able to retain moisture. Pair cod with such seasonings as basil, tarragon, dill, and ginger for satisfying results.

Halibut is the largest flatfish with a toothsome texture and gentle, sweet taste. The dense white meat is firm and scrumptious. You usually find halibut sold as steaks at the fish counter. Halibut holds up for various methods of cooking, including grilling and baking. Get your halibut at City Fish Market, where you will find it is white and shiny, not dull or yellowed.
