Kabeljou Fillets | Fresh Fish Box | Wild caught
CAUGHT ONE AT A TIME, WITH A HAND LINE
Also known as Cape Kob or Silver Kob, the kabeljou is a fish whose population has been severely impacted by unsustainable fishing practices. When served fresh the kabeljou features succulent and firm flesh and very few bones, which makes it perfect for home preparation. We only stock kabeljou that is caught one at a time with a pole and line as this is the lowest impact way of harvesting this fish.
2 x Kob Fillets (approx. 900g - 1200g per box)
Your box will arrive fresh, simply store in your fridge, and use at your leisure (up to 5 days). For home freezing, freeze on the day of arrival, and use within 3 months. The kob’s flesh colour may change when frozen and some flavour loss will occur.
The kabeljou has been severely overfished with populations at 10% of sustainable levels. Because of this we do not stock any kabeljou that has been caught using trawling or long lines, instead sourcing our fish from handline fishermen in Struisbaai where they are caught one at a time for the lowest possible impact. We also do not support the harvesting and sale of milk kob , stocker kob, soapies or small kob (juvenile kob). – those are undersize, we have a legal size limit of 50cm

Parmesan Crumbed Kob
If you’re wondering how to prepare your kabeljou, then wonder no longer. The Fishwife is here to share a delicious recipe. You will need:
- 1 x Kob fillet, skin on
- 2 Tbsp dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup parmesan
- 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1 Tbsp chopped parsley (optional)
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 20g melted butter
- Salt & pepper
- 4 Tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 lemon
- Remove the fish from packaging and pat dry with paper towel on both sides.
- Line a baking tray with foil and grease with Spray & Cook.
- Place the fillet on the foil skin down.
- Spoon the mustard onto the fish and spread evenly so that the entire fillet is coated.
- Season the fillet with salt and pepper.
- In a separate dish combine the parmesan, panko crumbs, parsley, garlic and melted butter to make the crumb topping.
- Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the fish until the entire fillet is coated.
- Place the fish in the oven on a medium grill on the highest rack for approximately 15 minutes, or until cooked through.
- Keep an eye on the fish so as not to let the crumbs burn. If the crumb topping is burning, drop the fish to the middle rack and cook for a few minutes extra.
- Serve with lemon mayonnaise: in a small dish combine the mayonnaise with the juice of 1 lemon, stir and enjoy!

Fresh and delicious I seasoned mine with salt , lemon and butter and grilled in oven for 15 minutes.
Very impressed with quality. Made a Parmesan crusted fillet last night - delicious was an understatement!
Super fresh and beautifully packaged with care.
So far we had a very very nice experience. The delivery was fast and they even waited for me , for 2 min, as i was at the shops. The packaging of the product is awesome. We will eat the fish some time next week.
Using the site was easy. Important information as to where the fish was caught or farmed was listed. I like having goods delivered and delivery was prompt. Thanks!
I asked for the fillets to be portioned, thank you - nicely done. Grilled two fresh for my husband and me last night . Perfect.
We ordered our Kabeljou on Thursday evening and received it fresh on Friday. We prepared it on the braai and it was absolutely fantastic. Super fresh and and incredibly tender. Will always order our fresh fish from Greenfish!
I love kabeljou - the fish was super fresh. Melt-in-your mouth delicious!!
I am not a fish eater and my experiences at cooking fish has been limited to say the least. Last week I ordered prawn tails from Greenfish, and the speed of delivery and freshness of the product impressed me to the degree that I jumped at ordering fresh Kabeljoe this week. Next step, how to cook it. Thank you Mr Google. A beautiful spicy pepper, mushroom and Tomato salsa on the succulent Kabeljoe on a bed of wilted spinach. Sounds like something off the food channel, I wish. But the freshness of the fish, the simplicity of the menu and the taste leaves me wondering what to buy from Greenfish next week.
I ordered Kobeljou in early morning and it arrived chilled and ready to cook later the same day. I marinated the fish with Sesame oil, Mirin, chilli, garlic and ginger for 30 mins and then grilled in a hot oven for 15 minutes. I served with an asian salad and garnished with coriander. It was delicious.
Simply delicious and easy to work with. The product is well packed which keeps its freshness intact. one can still taste the sea,
Best kob fillets ever!!! My absolute favourite fish delivered to my door, then pan fried and enjoyed. Delivery excellent Packaging excellent Freshness excellent
All I can say is the service was exceptional and the fish was amazing
What an awesome experience dealing with these guys. I tried ordering kabeljou but it sold out so fast, I missed it. I contacted the guys at Greenfish and the moment it became available again they let me know. The fish itself was simply amazing. Rarely can you find fresher sustainable fish in Cape Town at such reasonable prices and excellent quality!
I had asked about kob earlier and now received an e-mail saying they had some. Well worth the wait, no wonder it’s always sold out!
The quality, presentation, hygiene and service delivery met everything promised and exceeded my expectations. Well done! Thanks; we will definitely order again.
Enjoyed the fish.
Beautifully packaged fresh fish that was divine. I will definitely use Green Fish again.
