What is the recommended cooking method for lean fishes?

Chef's answer
Because of their low fat content (as low as 0.5percent in cod and other white-fresh fish), lean fish can easily overcook from dry-heat methods like sauteing, baking, broiling, and grilling. These fish are better suited to poaching or steaming, techniques that protect with added moisture.

Searing is a surface treatment used to produce a flavorful brown crust on thick cuts of protein. Sauteing is used to cook smaller pieces of food or thinner cuts of meat all the way through.
