Characteristics Meagre is a fantastic fish that is low in fat, has a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, and is high in protein – all the things guests love! On top of that, the flavor of Meagre is always succulent and always satisfying.

For Your Menu

MenuMeagre has a lightly sweet-yet-mildly briny flavor, and a delightfully firm-yet-supple texture not seen in other white fish. It’s perfect for a variety of preparations and cuisines such as ceviche and sushi. Or chargrill it for a hearty Mediterranean dish, salt-baked for something simple and elegant, or pan-sear it for that perfect bite. Enjoy the large, juicy flakes with their clean, oceanic flavor that’s reminiscent of a quiet sea breeze. When cooked, Meagre doesn’t seep proteins and fat, which means no fishy odors.
