The wild caught mackerels degutted and descaled were not so fresh. The meat was soft and the eyes were red. The stomach area was totally bad, have to throw away.
The other red snapper slices were fresh and tasty. The Kuhlbarra fish was excellent.
Suggestion that when the fish has to be delivered in the late afternoon, please pack with ice for delivery.
Very fresh and tasty.
Will buy again
Good if there’s option to fillet with skin on
The fish is fresh but maybe a bit too small when chopped into steak cuts.
I was pleasantly surprised with the option to make fish paste as I have been trying to eat lesser pre-processed food like fish cakes and fish balls made outside. I used this to make yong tau fu at home. Loved it lots and will definitely order again and again.
