the fish looks fresh, taste nice
Never eaten moonfish before. Thought we would try something different for a change. And wow. A delicious rich creamy taste and cooked with lemon juice the flavours were outstanding. Delivered within a few hours and packed well as always.
First time for us, lovely subtle taste, not an overwhelming fish or typical game fish taste, but just enough. Pan fried in butter, delicious!
I am over the MOON
Service was excellent - as usual. It was my first Moon Fish time and I must say it was excellent, delicious. Simply fried it in olive oil and butter and served with lemon and garlic butter. Heaven.
We had many people over for braai and wanted to try something new. This fish is amazing. For me it tastes somewhere between tuna and salmon. It is absolutely yummy! We just seasoned it and braai it medium### Opah is my new favourite fish
Quick delivery of a very fresh product. The two steaks of around 800/900g were well cut (neat and tidy) and easy to prepare. Delicious meal - shallow fried, coated in seasoned flour and egg wash, fried over low heat with a slight pink centre. Went well with egg fried rice and a Thai dipping sauce. The fish is a firm fish with a gentle flavour similar to tuna but less gamey. Green Fish continues to hit the mark.
Moonfish to the Moon!
Very quickly delivered as usual. The fish was phenomenal! Ended up doing it 3 ways just to have a few different prep methods. 1 raw. 2 oven baked with a very light paprika chilli marinade 3 panfried with a sesame seed crust. This was fking amazing!! The Panfried version was king still slightly pink in the centre top quality fish. Everytime. Thank you Greenfish.
Awesome product! Great packaging and excellent service.
Fresh, succulent and what a flavour experience! First time we've ever had moonfish, but definitely not the last! And delivery service excellent, as usual.
We all loved the moon fish, it was absolutely delicious!! Soft, moist, tasty.... thankfully I cooked it perfectly...
Moonfish steaks - Great
Pan-fried the steak. It was so delicious! Will definitely order again.
A very good buy - juicy steaks
MOonfish First timer
absolutely epic - got it to do on the braai for some guests - and managed to cook it to perfection! the fis was amazing and the leftovers went into a brilliant thai green curry the next day!
A fantastic fish.
Here is a great recipe for Moonfish. https://www.food.com/recipe/seared-opah-moonfish-with-vine-ripe-tomato-garlic-butter-214017
The quality is always excellent and the service matches
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.
Wow ,I had these in my freezer waiting to try these never had before, what a surprise, how blessed we are to have fish like this,got to do a re run on swordfish, Marlin to see which was better,5 stars to Greenfish
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!
