Characteristics

CharacteristicsLiving in the cold, deep waters of the Southern Hemisphere means a high fat content and rich, moist meat with a buttery flavor that just melts in your mouth. The fillets are shiny and white and cook up white and flaky with a firm texture. It’s a great source of protein and is rich in Omega 3’s.

Alternatives include Sablefish or Escolar.
