    THE MOST SOUTH AFRICAN OF FISH

    In the Western Cape, the snoek braai is a universally shared social occasion. This hardy fish is as commonly enjoyed, as it is easily found in the cold waters of the west and southern coast of South Africa. Snoek has a distinctive, unmistakeable flavour, which comes from sardines and anchovies it likes to prey on. The flesh is firm, but oily, which is one of the reasons it works so well on the braai. Our snoek comes flecked, which is a process of filleting from the back and then curing lightly with salt to extract water and firm up the flesh before freezing. All our snoek comes from handline fishermen catching off Lambertsbaai on the West Coast.

    CONTENT

    1x Snoek per Box (approx. 2 – 3kg) * About 8-9% of local snoek caught are pap. We know this because when we fleck them, we take out the pap ones before salting, wrapping and freezing the good ones before we distribute. The pap snoek are made into salted snoek and sold separately.

    * In the unlikely event that you think you have a pap snoek, please snap a photo and send us a whatsapp to assist you – 0721104709. If it is "pap" please wrap and freeze it and we will gladly swap it out.

  • Instructions

    Your box will arrive frozen, simply store in your freezer (up to 3 months) and use at your leisure. It is best to remove product from packaging to defrost, simply place on a tray in your fridge and allow to thaw slowly

  • Sustainability

    Snoek is often caught by trawlers or imported from Australia and New Zealand (where it is known as barracouta). However, all Greenfish snoek is sourced from handline fishermen in Lambertsbaai on the west coast. Not only does handline fishing offer the lowest possible environmental impact, but we also believe it yields the best quality.

  • Fishwife Recipes

    Braaied Snoek with Apricot Jam

    Our partner site The Fishwife shows us why braaied snoek and apricot is so highly regarded on the Cape Peninsula. You will need:

    • 1 Greenfish flecked snoek
    • 85g butter
    • 2 heaped tsp crushed garlic
    • 1/2 cup apricot jam
    • 1/4 cup chutney
    • 1/2 lemon (squeezed)

    Preparation:

    1. Get your braai on the go and grease the grid so the snoek skin doesn't stick to it.
    2. Place your flecked snoek on the grid, skin side down.
    3. In a small pot on the stove, heat the butter and garlic and sauté for a minute or two.
    4. Add the jam, chutney and lemon juice and combine with a whisk into a nice sticky chutney jam.
    5. Allow the jam to reduce on a medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally with the whisk.
    6. Take the jam off the heat and allow it to cool for 5-10 minutes before basting the fish.
    7. Baste the snoek generously with the jam until evenly coated.
    8. Place the grid over the hot coals, skin side down.
    9. Cook on a medium heat, with the grid at its highest setting for about 15-20 minutes.
    10. Best enjoyed straight off the grid with your fingers!

    Note: Flecked snoek already has a salty taste, so there is no need to salt the fish.

      Awesome Snoek!!!

      I had a really great experience using Greenfish for the first time. The fish was delivered to my door and incredibly packaged. I had my doubts initially, but that was all put at ease when I defrosted the fish and used it on the day. It was firm and perfectly sized for the braai. I will definitely be using and recommending Greenfish again!

      West Coast Snoek Box

      I have been traditionally accustomed to buying snoek on the roadside since I was a child.My Mom would clean it at home, while I would be pulling up my nose at the smell and sight of blood.I just enjoyed the eating part of it all.Fast forward four decades later and I would be lucky if my husband found snoek on the way home and unlucky that I would now have to clean and cut it before freezing into portions.We have also been unlucky many times to have unknowingly bought 'pap' snoek. What a mindshifting experience on my snoek purchase from Greenfish .It was delivered promptly and the fish was so fresh.It was perfectly portioned and packedaged, making my cooking experience so much simpler and faster. I made a yummy snoek curry, which I wish I had taken a pic of. I can definitely make about 8 meals from my purchase which is also fantastic value for money!Cannot wait to try some other varieties from Greenfish.

      Snoek

      The snoek box I ordered was even better then I expected. The snoek was delicious and I will definitely be ordering again once we have eaten the other two.

      Great snoek

      I ordered my snoek on Monday morning and received it later that day. I left instructions for my snoek to be cut and soon thereafter I got a call from a very friendly lady asking how i would like them to cut it. The snoek arrived perfectly cut and packed. We had the snoek for supper and we all agreed that it was the best snoek we ever had. Firm and fresh. Thanks guys. Will definitely be ordering again. Tha

      Fresh snoek

      Wonderful on the braai - and super value for money. I have now found out to order it cut in half - which is great , as it does not fit in my fridge of freezer - it is so big.

      Very impressed indeed!

      Speed of delivery and friendly driver was awesome! My fish was not cut as requested (into quarters), but the size, quality and taste more than made up for the time it took to wrestle frozen snoek into my fridge. Will definitely be ordering again - for the above reasons, but mostly for the ethos

      Good Day Aelen Thank you for the review and kind words, I am sorry you had a bad experience with our one of our snoek. I did try calling you today to get some more information about why you though this fish was not good, however you have been unavailable. About 8-9% of snoek caught are pap. We know this because when we fleck them, we take out the pap ones before salting, wrapping and freezing the good ones before we distribute. The pap snoek are made into salted snoek and sold separately. The fact that a fish in your box is pap, is unlikely - and simply unlucky. I have instructed my team to replace it for you provided you can supply us with the "pap" one, we will gladly swap it out. Kindly make contact with us. [email protected] Thank you again for your feedback Ryan

      Snoek was great

      The snoek box we ordered was neatly cut and packed as per my request. The fish was firm and fresh and we had a fantastic fish braai. Also it was larger than we expected. Excellent quality and service. We have struggled to find snoek elsewhere of this quality, so I will definitely be buying from Greenfish again.

      Delicious and Convenient !

      Not your average Snoek. Two big fish perfectly prepped for the braai and frozen perfectly. Left to defrost properly, the colours are still in the skin and flesh looks incredible. This thing was fresher than your average ‘Fresh’ Purchase. And I still have one waiting to go for an impromptu weekend braai.
