Barramundi Fish Pack of 10 (2-7 ounce fillets)
FROZEN AUSTRALIAN BARRAMUNDI
Highly regarded fish in Australia and Asia
Meat similar to sea bass
The magnificent barramundi is an icon of Australia but is well known across all of South-East Asia. The flesh cooks to large, white flakes. If we had to compare barramundi to other fish we’d say it’s similar to stone bass and even to sea bass. Some clever seafood marketer termed barramundi as the ‘Asian Sea Bass’. We haven’t gone that far but do think it has similarities to the sea bass you know in the UK.
The pinky-white flesh has a light to firm texture medium oil content and a mild, sweet flavor. When cooked the flesh is white with large flakes. Wild Barramundi has often been compared to Chilean Seabass due to the oil content and buttery taste of the fillets. Skin is good served crispy, holds up to most cooking methods, including sashimi.
Barramundi is also known as Hira-Suzuki in Japan.
Barramundi comes in standard pack containing 2 – 7 ounce fillets.
How to properly defrost frozen seafood: We recommend that all frozen seafood be defrosted by placing product in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours depending upon the density. Never force thaw a product by running it under water (hot or cold as it can cook the product). Not only does this reduce the flavor, but it is also a health hazard.
