Yellowtail Fillets | Fresh Fish Box | Wild caught
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.
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
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).

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.
Yellowtail is a fast breeding, faster growing and highly resilient fish, with unpredictable seasonal migrations. The latest stock assessments conducted by SASSI indicate populations are healthy and not at risk from overfishing. Our yellowtail is caught using artisanal landlines, this highly selective fishing method has a low impact on the marine environment.

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
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
- Enjoy with friends!

Yellowtail Fillets | Fresh Fish Box | Wild caught
I'm more than satisfied with what I've received; also well packed.
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!
No better service and quality of product. Thank you guys, same day delivery to Paarl was such a pleasant surprise!
Super fish super service
I recently purchased fresh yellowtail from Greenfish. For a first time experience I was very impressed - the fish was fresh, the packaging was clean and the delivery process very efficient. I will be using it again soon.
Love the convenience
5 star service and quality
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!
Excellent service, quick delivery and expertly packed. Was delicious on the braai.
Exellent fresh products every time
If it was any fresher it would still be swimming.
Wonderfully Fresh — but those left behind pin bones !!
As always beautiful fresh fish — but and it is a big BUT !! In my book — Fillets means that it has been “ pin boned “ as well ! None of these fillets were properly pin boned !! As a regular I think I need to voice my disappointment - everything else was top notch — Packaging through to delivery !
A brilliant fresh fish, beautifully filleted and vacuum packed in two separate portions. Top notch product and service all the way through to professional delivery! Well done.
I am not surprised that its currently sold out. I received the fish, fresh! fresh! fresh! You deliver as promised. My expectations are exceeded, I can only say I’m hooked….
LOVE ALL GREENFISH PRODUCTS. Best fish, best packaging, Best delivery service- you get what you see on the adverts
best fresh fish ever!
The most amazingly fresh fish, delivered on the same day(!!) that made me start enjoying fish for the first time.
