NZ Alfonsino – Kinmedai
The Alfonsino is a distant Cousin to the Sumatra Fighting Fish, a salt water Beta. The Fish are small (13″) at their largest. Alfonsino have been described as “Melt in Your Mouth”. They have a very tender palate and a sweet flavor balanced with umami. Alfonsino are a deep-sea species, found in waters 600-1500 feet. Alfonsino have a very sweet, rich flavor, with the flesh being super high in minerals, nutrients and Omega-3 oils. The fillets are short and deep, tapering sharply and have a light pink color, with a firm texture and medium flake.
NZ Tai – Kodai
Tai has a host of species attached with the moniker. This is the Pagrus auratus from New Zealand. It is a Porgy/Sea Bream that has a beautiful pink hued skin that is wonderfully edible. The flesh is a soft light pink that cooks to paper white, and is mild, sweet, and “fluffy”. Applications are limitless! Menu as Tamure, Tai, Madai, Kodai, Red Sea Bream, or Porgy and your guests will revel in its versatility. Prized for its colorful golden/red scales with light blue spots, it is a true favorite for New Zealanders and is considered the Rolls Royce of inshore species. In Japanese folklore it is the symbol of fortune, and is typically used as the centerpiece in celebratory feasts. NZ snapper is rich in a naturally occurring amino acid called glycine which results in its characterictic sweet flavor. It is a must-have item for any menu. Our snapper are caught via long-line, from our day-boat fleet and this results in the best-quality eating fish imaginable. New Zealand’s snapper fishery is managed by the Quota Management System, with a sustainable harvest TACC (Total Allowable Commercial Catch) of 6,357,300 tons.
