Barracuda 山君鱼

Baracuda from Pontian has a unique sweet flavour that cannot be found elsewhere. Barracudas are primarily fish eaters, preying on such smaller fishes as anchovies. It is considered as sport fish, having a firm texture and a mild taste. It is suitable for pan-frying and stir-frying. It can also be cooked as Kung Pao Fish Fillets and Spring Onion Ginger Fish Fillets. 笨珍野生的山君鱼有别于来自其他海域的山君鱼,它的口味更加清甜。山君鱼主要以小鱼为食,包括小江鱼。它是运动量高的鱼类,所以有着结实的口感,味道也偏清淡。它适合翻炒煎炸,烹煮宫保鱼片,姜葱鱼片再适合不过。

How To Make: Fried Barracuda with Fried Plantains & Salad


  • Canola oil, for frying
  • 4 fillets barracuda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 ghost pepper, small dice (you can substitute habanero chile)
  • 2 plantains, sliced 2-inches thick diagonally
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Peas and Rice, for serving, recipe follows
  • Salad, for serving, recipe follows
Peas and Rice:
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 ounces bacon, diced
  • 4 ounces tomato paste
  • 2 1/2 to 3 ounces Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 cup complete seasoning
  • 1 can pigeon peas
  • 1/4 onion, diced
  • 1/4 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 medium tomato, diced
  • 1 1/2 pounds white rice
  • 1 bunch Romaine lettuce, sliced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • Ranch dressing, to taste


Heat about 3 inches of oil to 375 degrees F in a large cast-iron skillet or deep high-sided saute pan. Sprinkle the barracuda with 1/2 teaspoon of the garlic salt. Mix together the lime juice and ghost pepper in a wide shallow dish and add the fish, turning to coat. Let marinate while frying the plantains. Fry the plantains in the oil, flipping once, until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain the excess oil. Whisk the eggs in a shallow dish. Combine the flour and remaining 1 teaspoon garlic salt in a second shallow dish. Coat the barracuda fillets first in the egg wash, and then in the flour. Fry the fillets in the oil until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side, and then transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Serve the fish with a couple fried plantains, Peas and Rice and Salad.

Peas and Rice:

Heat the oil in a large saucepot, and cook the bacon until the fat begins to render, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, seasoning, pigeon peas, onions, bell peppers, tomatoes and 2 quarts water. Bring to a boil, stir in the rice, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook, covered, until the rice is tender, about 1 hour.


Combine the Romaine, onions, bell pepper and tomato in a large mixing bowl. Dress with the ranch dressing.

How we package your order?

The vacuum sealed seafood products and frozen chill packs, which contain non-toxic gel are packed in a polystyrene box, so the chill packs distribute the cold evenly throughout your fish and seafood, ensuring maximum freshness.

We seal the polystyrene box with packing tape and hand it to our cold chain logistic to deliver to you.

What should I do when my order arrives? 

Remove your seafood products as soon as possible from the box, refrigerate all fresh items and freeze all frozen goods until you are ready to prepare them for consumption.

How is your frozen seafood handled? What is your freezing process?

Our fish and shellfish are processed and immediately frozen in our -45°c blast freezer. No chemicals or preservatives are added during the freezing or production process on any of our seafood items.

What is a -45 Degree Freezer and how does it affect the seafood when defrosted?

Blast freezing seafood products at a lower temperature keeps the wall of the cell intact, ensuring that water from the inside does not exit. When defrosted, the quality, texture, and appearance will remain completely intact just as if it were a fresh product.  

What is the proper way to defrost frozen seafood products? 

If you have received frozen seafood and placed it in the freezer, remove these items from the freezer and store them in the refrigerator for at least one day before you plan to serve it. Allow 12 to 24 hours for the product to properly defrost. Do not rush the defrosting process as it can affect the flavor and texture of your seafood.  

Why are some seafood products unavailable from time-to-time?

The availability of seafood products depends upon the season, weather, and other conditions that can affect a catch or harvest. Additionally, the harvesting of many seafood products is regulated in order to maintain a sustainable supply.
