One of the four king fish in Singapore, it is popular among all ages and even more so during the Chinese New Year celebrations due to its auspicious red colour and due to how excellent it is for steaming due to its firm and bouncy meat.
For a more affordable option, Emperor Red Snapper would be our top recommendation for steaming.
Please specify the type of cut you want and we will do so for you e.g. : butterfly, fillet.
For medium-sized red groupers, we would recommend cutting it into slices before steaming it or a butterfly-cut, as filleting is more suitable for larger sized fishes.
Price is $33/kg. The picture shows a 1.8 kg (top) and 1.2 kg (bottom)
Price range is $25-$60/kg (price increases significantly during festive seasons)
Price has not been good and supply is irregular, we will wait for a few weeks until price is around $30/kg before we start selling it again.
