A firm structure and mild flavour
Butterfish (or Snake Mackerel) tastes rather like halibut or swordfish. The white Butterfish fillets have a firm texture and mild flavour, with the relatively high fat content making this fish fantastic for baking, smoking and grilling. This product is also often used for various sushi dishes.
Butterfish can reach up to two metres long and 45 kilos in weight. It swims at a depth of some 900 metres. The product is frozen immediately after catching so you can benefit from this at-sea frozen product throughout the year.
The filets are available in various sizes and glazes and you can also choose from fillets with and without skin.
