Atlantic Bonito | Katonkel (Mackerel family) | Fresh Fish Box | Caught West Coast
It has been locally and sustainably caught by our artisanal handline fisherman, one hook, one line, one fish at a time. We have carefully selected for you to enjoy with your family or friends. Atlantic bonito is part of the mackerel family, is very oily and great in the smoker. Fresh it works well in ceviche and sashimi, or even in the pan. A mild game flavoured easy cooking fish.

Smoke Bonito fillets
The Fishwife is here to share a delicious recipe with a DIY smoker. You will need:
- Bonito fillets
- A wide pot or pan with a lid that seals tightly
- Tin foil
- Wood chips or shavings
- A wire rack to fit the base of the pot or pan
- Line your pan with tinfoil (shiny side up).
- Place your wood chips in the centre of the tinfoil.
- Place your wire rack on top of the wood shavings.
- Place your Bonito fillets seasoned with salt and pepper on the wire rack. Make sure the wood chips are not touching the fish.
- Place the pan on a high heat. It will take approximately 5 minutes for the wood chips to start smoking. Once smoking allow the fish to smoke for a further 10 – 15 minutes (you may wish to turn the heat down to medium here). The fish is done when it has turned a lovely golden colour. You may need to smoke for a bit longer if the fillets are thick.
- Remove from the pan and enjoy as is, in a salad or turn into a lovely paté!
