Swordfish Steaks | Fresh Box | Wild caught
AN ICONIC FISH WITH A DELICIOUS FLAVOUR
Known for its distinctive sword-shaped bill, the swordfish is an elusive, solitary, and powerful oceanic apex predator. It is as sought after for for its delicious, mildly sweet flavour. Swordfish travel great distances in search of prey and ours are caught off Cape Point by fishermen leaving from Table Bay.
2x Swordfish Steaks (approx. 800g-950g per box) Serves 4
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. Swordfish flesh colour may change colour from a light white to light brown once frozen (this is normal).
Because of its appeal to both sport fishermen and chefs alike, swordfish have been overfished for a long time. And while SASSI regards the Atlantic Ocean population as sustainable, there are strict regulations on who may catch these fish using the longline fishing method. All our swordfish is sourced from a small fleet of local owned and operated licensed fishing vessels allowed to bring in this type of catch.

Most delicious and such fresh fish. A real treat. Delivery (on ice) within a few hours. Very happy!
Lovely fish fillets!
This was a repeat order and will definately continue. Excellent packaging and on-time delivery makes such a pleasant experience. These are perfect for the braai.
Haven't had swordfish in a while and this was absolutely perfect and delicious. On top of that I ordered in the morning and received the fish nicely packaged and all the way in Franschhoek before 5pm. All in all a fantastic experience.
I rarely write reviews but the team at Greenfish deserves every bit of praise and recognition. Lightning quick delivery of fish as fresh and clean as you can possibly hope for. At amazing value as well. I hope you continue to run a successful business for years to come. And yes, the swordfish is amazing.
Thanking you for a wonfefull experiance. Beaufitull eating experiance. Thank you
Always fresh always fantastic - Ryan delivers he runs a superb business a rare commodity in todays world - the fish the same try it you will be delighted
As soon as this was availability I snapped up 5 boxes for a friend and I. It’s wonderful and a real treat to get when available.
This company is amazing. Orders arrive on the same day as,ordered,if ordered before 11am. The fish we ordered was just as fabulous. Well packed in sealed boxes which contains the freshest fish. Swordfish was delicious. Can’t wait to cook the fresh tuna steaks.
I don’t recall ever having had swordfish before, and was a little anxious about the experience. Well, was I in for a surprise! Can’t wait for my next visit to Cape Town so that I can order these again.
First time we ordered these steaks. Pan fried 3 minutes each side. Really nice fish. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Hands down the freshest seafood in SA (unless you caught it yourself!) Perfect packaging, reliable delivery and great accompanying recipes from fish wife. I fish myself, for my blank days Greenfish has delivered several times, highly recommended
The swordfish was fabulous. Our new favourite. Tuna steaks were delicious and thoroughly enjoyed off the braai. All fish was delivered fresh, well packed and timeously. Will definitely be ordering regularly.
I have a fairly big appetite and had concerns whether sharing a 440g steak with the wife was a good idea.I opted for the Fish Wife's very simple Golden Pan-Seared recipy.The result was stunning and the portion more than enough.(My portion was 240g,but then,I was the chef!) I do not envisage us eating swordfish,yellowtail and baby kingklip at our favourite haunts @ R180.00 per head soon unless the Lotto kicks in.My octopus is being pickled as I type.It looks and tastes like the real deal.Overall great doing business with you guys.I forgot to mention the stunning Spaghetti Vongole.Next on my list is sole.
We have bought Swordfish a few times from Greenfish, my daughter, living in Italy, posted some pics at the market buying Swordfish, my 90 year old Dad who suffers dimentia looked at the pics and said remember when we first had swordfish, it was early 1987, remembered by the fact that Allan Donald was making his "unofficial" test debut and we watched at the Vasco Da Gama Tavern the day before me going to the Army, for a Dad and son farewell. It was also my introduction to the Vasco and Swordfish, still love them both. He then told me how much he missed Swordfish, with assistance from Ryan who managed to secure some swordfish and I was able to recreate the meal for my Dad and sister, her first time for Swordfish. The meal brought back so many good memories and created a few new ones, my sister is now a firm lover of swordfish. Thank you to Ryan and Green Fish for allowing us to rekindle those memories, the product is amazing and the service outstanding. Regards David Walker
To start the fish is of the highest quality and the freshest I have ever eaten - I order tuna and swordfish and both the same . On top of that delivery is always unbelievably fast and everyone from the delivery drivers to the owners have a great positive attitude which shows the culture of the company . I’d give 6 stars if I could ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The fish arrived fresh and was sushi grade quality, which I was looking for. The family and I managed to eat it three ways, sashimi, poke bowl and fried with butter. Excellent! Well done to Green Fish
This was the first time I placed an order and it will certainly be the first of many. I received superb quality swordfish that tasted amazing. I even received my fish on the same day I placed my order. Truely world class service!
