  • You will receive 2×2 ‘married’ yellowtail tails – 125/140g each
  • Blast frozen

These tail portions are cut from our prime yellowtail fillets. They are flavourful and keep moist due to the fat content of the fish.

Cooking

Defrost before cooking.

Once defrosted, pat dry to remove excess moisture. This fish contains high amounts of fat, which is why this fish is a popular eating fish.

We suggest cooking these portions skin down by pan frying, oven baking or commonly on the braai. Yellowtail fillet portions grill particularly well. On a cooking tray cover your portion with butter, lemon, spices and fresh herbs of your choice.

Grill the portion for about 8 minutes until the flesh is flakey, white and buttery. Alternatively, pan fry skin side down on a medium high heat for 3-4min on the skin side, then flip and finish for another 3min

Sustainability

Yellowtail are huge, schooling, fast-growing fish that migrate in irregular patterns throughout the year. They have a strong reproductive rate and attain sexual maturity after 2-3 years, making them somewhat resistant to fishing. In the linefishery sector of South Africa, yellowtail is the second most regularly caught species.

Yellowtail are caught using classic rod and reel or handline fishing techniques from small ski and deckboats. Linefishing is a selective fishing strategy that targets a diverse range of species, many of which are reef-associated but also contain a few pelagic species.
