Firm, flaky and delightfully sweet, whiting is another go-to fish for Australians across the continent. One of the reasons may be its incredible versatility, while another may be the sheer number of whiting varieties available. Thirteen related species of fish fall into the whiting category, with King George Whiting the ruler here in the south.
Also known as Hoki in New Zealand, Blue Grenadier is so delicate that it borders on fragile. The soft, white flesh provides rich nutrition and a marvelously mild flavour. The high nutritional value comes from its notable amounts of omega 3, while its flavour is versatile and tasty enough to be used by McDonald’s in its Filet-O-Fish.
Barramundi ranks high in versatility for its ability to live in both fresh and saltwater environments. The Aboriginal name translates to “large-scaled fish,” and it's one that comes with moist, firm, pinkish-white flesh. The fish has a flaky texture, is easy to prepare, and features a distinctive, mildly sweet flavour.
