Tarakihi is one of New Zealand’s most common fish both in the water and on the plate, and is extremely versatile when cooking.


The firm and moist texture of the Tarakihi locks in its sweet and earthy flavour when pan fried whole or in fillets . It can also stand up to stronger flavours, so, for a whole fish, try coating it in Cajun or Middle Eastern spices before grilling it on a hot plate until the flesh comes away from the frame.


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.
