    A DELICATE, FLAVOURFUL SOUTH AFRICAN CLASSIC

    The Cape Yellowtail is famed for its high fat content, which makes it one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids of any fish. In South Africa yellowtail are associated with the annual sardine run, when they leave their deep-water spawning grounds to feast. Our yellowtail is low impact, wild caught by artisanal, handline fishermen off Struisbaai, Cape Point and up the west coast.

    CONTENT

    2 x Yellowtail Fillets (Approx. 1800g-2200g per box)

    Or 4 x smaller fillets with total weight of 1800g-2200g*

    Or a single fillet cut in half with a total weight of 1800g-2200g*

    *product spec may vary depending on the size of the fish we have caught

  • Instructions

    Your Yellowtail fillets 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. Yellowtail flesh colour may change colour from a light white to light brown once frozen (this is normal).

    *pin bones are in

    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.

  • Fishwife Recipes

    Classic Yellowtail Braai

    Preparing yellowtail on the braai imparts a smoky flavour that beautifully compliments this delicious fish. Let The Fishwife show you how. You will need:

    • 750g Greenfish Yellowtail Fillet, skin on (plus minus 250g per person)
    • A few knobs of Butter
    • 2-3 teaspoons of crushed Garlic
    • Salt & Pepper

    Preparation:

    1. Place the fillet on the braai grid skin side down and season with salt and pepper. Spread a few teaspoons of crushed garlic over the fillet and place a couple of knobs of butter on top.
    2. Place the grid high above the coals on a medium heat and braai skin side down. Cooking on a medium heat high above the coals will prevent the skin from burning. You will see the meat change from translucent pink to white. Cook until you can see this colour change has just gone past halfway (this process will take approximately 15 -18 minutes).
    3. Flip the grid over so that the flesh side is now above the coals and cook for approximately 3-5 minutes until almost done. When the fillet looks 95% cooked remove from the heat as it will continue to cook once taken off the coals.
    4. Enjoy with friends!

          very impressed by the whole experience.

          Hi Ryan I was very impressed by the whole experience. The ordering system is easy and my 'special request' arrived exactly as I wanted. Your delivery guy was great and the fish was fresh and cold in a cooler box. The yellow tail cooked perfectly in my pizza oven and 11 people couldn't finish it. Some of my guests are real 'foodies' and one has asked for your details. Green Fish will hear from me again. Regards Darin

          Absolutely Wonderful

          Greenfish fresh fish are always as fresh as can be. Any fresher it would still be swimming. The packaging and chill truck deliveries ensure that the fish feels and taste like it has just come off the sea. Their frozen products are expertly frozen, packed and of exceptional quality. I have been buying from Greenfish for quite some time now and I have never been disappointed, ever. My latest purchase was some lovely yellowtail. Because it comes vacuum packed, I could freeze it for later use. In fact, in a week’s time I shall be serving fresh yellowtail, straight off the fire, to 10 hunters in the middle of the Karoo. I shall look forward to explaining the qualities of Greenfish. I hope this helps. Kind regards Pier

          Great quality and packaging at a great price

          I placed the order at 10:00 and 11:00 someone called me to ask how I would like the fish to be portioned. By mid afternoon it was delivered in Somerset West. Great quality, nicely portioned and expertly packaged. Well done!

          Beautiful fresh yellowtail

          I received two fresh large fillets, which were descaled and vacuum packed. Followed the simple braai recipe as I didn't want to mess around too much for my first attempt at a fish braai. The instructions are spot on and I ended up with buttery fish which flaked apart beautifully. Will definitely be ordering this again and experimenting with more flavours for basting.

          Swordfish - delicious!

          Received my Swordfish box and had the first half this evening. Slathered it with fresh lime and Chimichuri and baked in the oven - succulent and firm!

          Best Yellow Tail Ever

          Put it to you this way, I was visiting (delivery to hotel worked perfectly) and cooking for friends who’ve been staying in Cape Town for over 25 years and they said it was the best yellow tail they’ve had. I’ll take some of the credit for that ;) …knowing that most of it is due to an excellent product!! We’ll done!
