An affordable alternative compared to threadfin, as the meat is soft and is an excellent source of protein, Vitamin B12 & B6. Fillets are deboned* and descaled.
Excellent for fish soup, porridge, and steaming. Meat is softer compared to the other fillets.
*Please note that even though the deboning process is done with stringent control, it is important to check for the presence of bones before feeding children and elderly.*
Can be used for fish & chips too! (much more affordable than cod)
