Available in whole, fillet or cutlet form. Look for lustrous, bright skin; bulging eyes; firm flesh and a pleasant, fresh smell. Fillets and cutlets should be lustrous with no brown markings and not oozing water.
Wrap whole fish, fillets or cutlets in plastic wrap or put in an airtight container. Refrigerate for 2-3 days or freeze for up to 6 months, providing your freezer operates at –18ºC.
Tips & Tricks:
Whole fish is already cleaned and gutted when purchased, quickly rinse under cold running water and score at the thickest part of the flesh to allow even heat penetration.
Excellent pan-fried, chargrilled, barbecued, baked, steamed or poached. Poached whole and served with a fresh green salad and new potatoes makes a very simple and delicious lunch party.
