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

I like that you specify where the fish were caught.
I buy them as often as I see them available, they are excellent
It was an experience of excellence - from ordering right through to preparing and the eating of it. Excellent delivery service, excellent packaging and presentation and definitely excellent quality.
Really good. Will definitely repeat order
So fresh and pink and delicious
Great service and delivery. Quality of the fish was amazing. Will def order again.
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.
Sword Fish Steaks
Ordered last week. Fish arrived nicely packed and fresh! Make a seasoning of Japanese Shichimi Togarashi based seasoning which is absolutely divine
Prompt delivery and visually very appealing product. Haven’t used it yet but planning a chunky fish pie this weekend.
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.
Best fish ever!
Such fast and efficient service. The freshest fish. Will definitely be ordering again!
