Many consider John Dory, or Kuparu, top of the charts when it comes to eating fish. Its delicate, slightly sweet flavour and medium texture makes it extremely versatile to cook with.


Unique in appearance, John Dory is recognisable by the eye-shaped spot on each flank, and its deep flat shape. Our John Dory are caught around the North Island and at the top of the South Island all year round, meaning you can buy whole John Dory or John Dory fillets whenever you need it.


John Dory is a great fish to bake or grill whole on the barbecue as its flesh stays juicy and moist, and comes easily away from the fish frame once cooked. It can also be pan fried, poached or marinated.
