Redfish

Also known as Ocean Perch (and incorrectly as Norwegian Haddock), there are species of this deep-sea fish found in both Atlantic and Pacific waters ranging from 500g to 2kg. As its name suggests, it has reddish-orange skin and is easily identified by its large ‘bug eyes’ and protruding lower jaw. Large quantities are landed, and are often used for processing into fish fingers. It’s a good buy, and yet under-utilised. Fillets of Redfish have a good flavour and a flaky texture making a good alternative to any Cod-like species.
