    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, unmistakable 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. 2.0kg) * 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 – 0636662802. If it is "pap" please wrap and freeze it and we will gladly swap it out.

  • Instructions

    Your Snoek 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

    Any special requests or instructions can be left in the NOTES section at the Checkout. Eg: Your doorbell does not work, you require a phone call before the order arrives, you would like the fillets / steaks vacuum packed seperately or cut into smaller portions etc.

  • Eco rating

    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.

          Both the Snoek and the Yellowtail were a superb hit at my husband's birthday braai. Although honestly the Yellow tail was huge and would have been more than enough for us all. Ordering the snoek was too much. Because obviosly we had salads and some people still brought meat. In future I will only order 1 fish. Thank you. Swrvice & delivery and fish were great!

          Yummy yummy yummy!

          I order from Greenfish often and this is a favorite. They cut it into 3 portions so it's enough for 3 braai days! We marinade it in apricot jam ( low sugar), cashew butter, garlic, lemon and chili. Wonderful, easy and economical.

          It's good to know that you are actually eating Snoek and not Barracudas. I will never buy my snoek at any other place.

          Excellent Quality Fish

          The fish was delivered on the same day on which it was ordered. It was well packed and when we cooked the fish it was clear that it was super fresh and hence very tasty. The after sales service was equally professional with follow up calls confirming receipt of my order and satisfaction with the contents. I will certainly support Green Fish in the future and have already recommended them to my friends.

          Delicious Snoek

          I was reluctant to order the frozen snoek but wow, the best frozen snoek I’ve ever eaten. Defrosted overnight in the styrofoam box, it was ready to braai for lunch the next day. It was delicious, very close to the flavour of fresh snoek.

          snoek was enormous

          Dear Ryan, The snoek was enormous & we braai it (only 1/6th we are only 2) on the open fire. It was lovely (thick & juicy almost like fresh)! We have not used the Lobster, Prawn tails & the smoked salmon. The packing was & delivery 100% . Kind regards. J
