While it's obvious to see that the severe weather conditions we have been experiencing the last few weeks haven't been favourable for fishing, here at Red Coral, we are making sure our customers are getting the variety they need to keep pumping those specials out. while the volume may not be there this week, the quality and variety still stands. Here's a list of the more notable species we will be selling this week.
CHATHAM ISLAND BLUE COD: Usually for the high-end venues, we have beautiful Chatham Blue Cod in around the 1kg size. Small quantities so jump on quick
MONKFISH (Stargazer): Nice pearly white skinless/boneless fillets available out of NZ. great for a winter seafood pie!!
RED GURNARD: Nice fat fillets available. Great alternative to Flathead at the moment, with a much sweeter taste
OCTOPUS: Plenty available via South Australia. Believe it or not, sales on the Large Octopus are still through the roof in the winter months. nothing warms you up better than a serve of char-grilled octopus!!
HIRAMASA KINGFISH: Very versatile fish. Perfect for sashimi applications. fish is very fatty at the moment and very popular this time of the year
