          Great service; new experience

          We felt adventurous and decided to give Opah a try. The delivery, packaging and fresheness was excellent as always. I concur with other reviewers that Opah seems like a cross between Tuna and Salmon. The flesh has an orange and pink hue, is very firm, and the skin quite thick. It is rich and the taste is similar to wild-caught salmon, but wilder. Overall I definitely prefer either tuna or salmon; glad I had the experience nonetheless. The sustainability rating is also 3/5, and is good enough reason for me to only try this fish once.

          What a great surprise!

          I had never even heard of moonfish before I bought this, but, being a rather adventurous "foodie" and lover of seafood, I decided to give it a try. My word: is this a lovely new fish to add to my beloved fish species. Lovely firm texture, rich but not overpowering in taste. Perfect for absorbing mild other flavours. I tried it pan fried, and also steamed with some dried spices. Both methods yielded great taste, succulence and texture. I can also imagine it being a winner in a fish soup, a rugged pasta dish and a paella. Definitely buoying some more!

          Delicious moonfish

          Moonfish or Opah is new to me so I was very excited when Greenfish offered this to buy. As with all of our Greenfish orders, the steaks were fresh, beautifully cleaned and prepared, and efficiently delivered. Moonfish is beautiful. We wanted to taste the fish, so did a simple preparation - panfrying with lemon and butter. They were delicious! The flesh is soft and succulent, and the cut that we had really does taste like a cross between salmon and tuna, as the internet told us it would.

          This was an interesting new fish to try. Nice firm flesh, easy to marinate with ginger, garlic, Soy, honey and lemon juice. Also very nice cooked plain with lemon butter drizzle.

          Delicious and mild

          This was mild and tasty. The portions were generous and my husband loved it because it wasn't particularly fishy. I roasted it in the oven and it has a creamy, buttery flavour and texture.
