    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 Fresh Swordfish Steaks (approx. 800g-950g per box) Serves 4

  • Instructions

    Your swordfish steaks 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).

    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

    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.

    ECOSYSTEM IMPACT : Medium high

    GEAR USED : Pelagic longline / bycatch of demersal longline

    SUPPORTING LOCALS : Yes

    DISTANCE TRAVELLED : 50km

    DOLPHIN / TURTLE IMPACT : Medium high

          First Order

          This was our first order from Greenfish. The ahi is fresh and sushi grade. We made poke and it was as good as I have ever had. The service was great and the delivery time was well communicated and accurate. I will order all my fish from them from now on!

          Swordfish

          This fish was superb. All I did was sprinkle some Ina Paarman fish spice and a dash of fresh lemoin juice, then fried it in butter. Divine.

          No going wrong with the Swordfish steaks

          As always, the fish was delivered quickly and unbelievably fresh. We find using the Fish Wife recipe results in the perfect dish. Rich flavours which don't overpower, yet keep you wanting more. This has become a favourite in the household when we're looking for a treat.
