Once in a while, I get a craving for the steamed cream dory. When I was young, my father used to take me to Chinese restaurants and among other Chinese dishes, I got to taste this kind of fish. It was unlike other fish I have tasted then and I remember thinking that it was clean tasting and not as fishy. Back then, cream dory was not as available in markets and groceries as it is now.

Nowadays, when I’m on the red days, this fish is a lifesaver because it’s even cheaper than fresh fish in the market. It’s been getting a lot of bad press lately because some people claim that cream dory may not be safe to eat. Which is a lot of hogwash in my opinion. All food has possibilities of being contaminated with anything and cream dory is about as healthy as any produced and processed food. What Im saying is that the risk would be about the same as say, chicken.

Is cream dory fish healthy?
