“The Pacific sanddab is flatfish similar to plaice and is common to the northern Pacific Ocean, from the Sea of Japan to the coast of California. It is a popular game fish in California, and is regarded as a delicacy, though it is not as popular elsewhere. Dabs caught in the spring and those that lived on a sandy seabed (as opposed to mud) are said to have the best flavor. From the Western chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947. Cooking time is approximate.”
