Red Mullet

ORIGIN: Local Waters

Red mullet is classified as a round white fish but has a richer and more satisfying flavour than most thanks to its higher fat content. It is sometimes compared to shellfish in taste, and in fact feeds on them.Unusually for a fish, the red mullet's liver is considered a delicacy in its own right, and that's one reason why mullet are often sold and cooked ungutted.

Red mullet is good grilled, then served with a lively sauce such as salsa verde. It can also be shallow-fried, baked or cooked en papillote (in a bag).

Scallops on the half shell can be steamed with asian flavours or grilled with butter or a lemon and herb crumb. Off shell scallops are best briefly grilled, fried or BBQ'd. Sear on a high heat to create a golden crust without overcooking. Remove scallops from the heat while still quite rare to allow the residual heat to finish cooking them, as overcooked scallops become rubbery and lack flavour. Very fresh scallops can be eaten raw as sashimi.

The firm, moist, sweet flesh of prawns has made them a sought after food source in Australia. The most popular species (and highest priced) are King Prawns and Tiger Prawns, both being larger prawns with very firm flesh and attractive presentation traits.

YELLOWTAIL KINGFISH are popular for their firm, white, slightly oily flesh and medium strong taste. They are highly valued as a sashimi fish but are also excellent grilled or BBQ'd. Like other 'meaty' fish, they are best when seared and cooked only to Medium Rare, as further cooking will result in a dry product. Baking with aromatics wrapped in foil will help to retain moisture. As the flesh is firm and holds it's shape well during cooking, Yellowtail Kingfish is suited to dicing and adding to curries or soups.

ORIGIN: LOCAL VICTORIAN

Local Stargazer or commonly known as Monkfish is now availlable. Similar in taste to the Gurnard. It has tight, firm flesh. 

Monkfish or Stargazer is a lovely meaty fish to cook. However, it does contain a lot of milky juices. This can sometimes be a pain because they tend to come out during cooking, so instead of roasting, grilling or frying, you end up almost boiling the fish in its own juices. If you want to grill your monkfish ask us to butterfly the fillets for you.

blue warehoe

Blue Warehoe                                                                 Sustainability Rating  1/10
 Dark steely blue.  Grows to 76cm and over 7kg in weight, (when reaching this size, they are about 10 years old). They are a rapidly growing fish, reaching around 25cm length in their first year. Spawning occurs in western Bass Strait in winter and spring, and there is some evidence that they become mature from about 32cm in length. Juveniles and sub-adults form large schools and migrate through certain areas around Tasmania during summer and autumn, especially along the north and south-east coasts.

A very good eating fish when eaten fresh. Members of the Trevally family have dry flesh similar to Warehou's and can be oily. They lend themselves well to similar cooking methods, such as grilling, frying and smoking. Avoid overcooking, as the flesh will dry out unpleasantly.

They are an excellent plate-sized fish to Roast or BBQ whole.They can also be 'butterflied' to present whole but without most bones for quick and easy cooking and serving.

Also a great fish for deep frying, especially with a coating such as a batter or crumb.Whiting are delicate and fillets are thin, so avoid overcooking by cooking for only a very short amount of time.

Large Octopus                                                                     Sustainability Rating  9/10
 

ORIGIN: Tasmania and South Australian

Large tendorized octopus

OCTOPUS has firm, dry 'meaty' flesh. Like calamari and squid, tender octopus is achieved by either a very short cooking time on a high temperature (try stir frying or BBQ'ing), or a long slow wet cooking method such as braising. Marinating before cooking will help tenderise the meat.There are many other techniques employed to tenderise octopus, these include throwing it against rocks or tumbling in a cement mixer (Greek way, which turned into a cage tumbler),  boiling with a cork (Italian), dipping 3 times in boiling water and then simmering in a copper pot (Spanish) and beating with a radish, Japanese

Local Pipis are back on!!!!

All Surf Clams, Pipi's and Vongole require purging to remove the fine sand or grit inside the shell. To do this, place in lightly salted cool water for several hours or overnight.

These bivalves respond well to brief cooking. Cook only until the shells open to prevent the meat from shrivelling and becoming tough. Steam or poach with asian flavours, BBQ, or open with white wine or stock before tossing through a pasta, soup or curry

Local Mussels                                                             Sustainability Rating  9/10

Local Mussels Are    in Season     and Excellent Quality Now!!!

Local mussels are heavy and full. Now plentiful

MUSSELS are juicy and have a great 'sea flavour'. The edible portion is the muscle within the shell and it take very little time to cook. As soon as they open, remove from the heat to prevent the meat from shrivelling and becoming tough and chewy.Steam or simmer in the shell with wine, stock and aromatics. Mussels can also be Grilled or BBQ'd in the shell, which gives a slightly smoky taste. To smoke, marinate, pickle or crumb and fry, remove mussels from the shell first.Mussels and their liquor make a great addition to soups, curries, stews or chowders.

Blue mussels  have a smooth, bluish-black shell. Wild blue mussels and tend to live in coastal estuaries or near shorelines. They often grow in clumps, attaching themselves to rocks or to each other by means of sticky filaments, sometimes referred to as a "beard". They are typically harvested by hand at low tide. In the North Atlantic, blue mussels are often grown using a variety of methods, but most methods share common traits, usually providing some means for mussels to anchor and live above the sea floor.

Blue mussels have a minor spawning period in June, followed by a second, extended spawning period from August to January.

Did you know? he colour of the mussel meat varies slightly - the girls are pink and the boys are paler !!
