Yellowtail Fillets | Fresh 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. 900g-1100g per fillet)
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. Yellowtail flesh colour may change colour from a light white to light brown once frozen (this is normal).
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!

LOVE ALL GREENFISH PRODUCTS. Best fish, best packaging, Best delivery service- you get what you see on the adverts
The most amazingly fresh fish, delivered on the same day(!!) that made me start enjoying fish for the first time.
Really happy and satisfied as always. The fish was extremely fresh, and arrived the same day. Thank you for being the best.
It was very good. Fresh ingredients, timely delivered. Thanks so much guys
Really enjoyed these yellowtail fillets, they were brilliantly fresh, tasty and conveniently packaged. Very good value for money! We'll be back for more, thanks Greenfish!
Hi Ryan, I must commend you for the excellent shopping experience as well as the quality of your fish. It was fresh and very tasty. Delivery was also quick. I will most definitely order from you again and have already told some family members about your business.
The yellowtail was great,my second time around now and delivery was speedy again,will definitely be using this service again. Waiting on crayfish tails to be back in stock again. They were amazing. Thanks Shaun
What a treat ordering from Greenfish was. I ordered on the Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday afternoon a young man climbed up the many stairs to our house (most stop at the bottom of the stairs and shout) to deliver two boxes - snoek and yellowtail. The Snoek was squeezed into the freezer (they are huge!) ready for a birthday braai on Sunday. The yellowtail was cut and eaten for dinner last night with enough left over for another dinner (or even two). It was fresh and delicious! We talked about how the poor fish was probably still swimming in the sea that morning - we are divers and love fish that are swimming… but we do appreciate eating them too - saying thank you as we do. Thanks Greenfish - we will be back.
I was the lucky recipient of a lucky draw and received a box of 4 fresh fillets, beautifully packed. Our friends visiting from the Free State were promptly treated with fresh fish done to perfection on charcoal, washed down with chilled Sauvignon Blanc - what a feast! Thank you Greenfish, we really appreciate this gift!
I was really impressed by the freshness of the fish and good packaging.I will definitely buy again.
Thanks Green Fish for awesome service!!
Greenfish service is brilliant. Yellowtail, swordfish and sole are all very tasty and fresh.
The fresh yellowtail arrived promptly in the afternoon after ordering in the morning. Each fillet is about 8 d we decent portions. So R25 a portion. Cooked with butter and lemon for 20-40 mins delicious!!
Excellent service. Will definitely order from Greenfish again!

This fish was so fresh the tail was till wagging when it arrived timeously at my door. Perfectly "manicured" fillets as always. This has now become a weekly occasion. Greenfish team, you rock!!!
