Tarakihi is one of New Zealand’s most common fish, both in our waters and on the plate. It has a firm but juicy texture, and its sweet and earthy flavour makes it a top choice when cooking.
As Tarakihi is an extremely versatile fish, the recipe options are endless. Our favourite cooking method is to pan fry Tarakihi coated in a light batter for some crunch, or dusted in Middle Eastern or Cajun spices for a delicious warming meal. Tarakihi Fillets also stand up well to stronger flavours, like being cooked in an Indian fish curry.
Caught around the East Cape and the South Island, Tarakihi has a gorgeous green-silvery body with a distinctive black band under the fin, making this fish one of a kind.
Buy your Tarakihi in fillets, or opt for a fresh Whole Tarakihi to really impress your guests.
