Chinese Pomfret is one of the most popular fish in Malaysia and Singapore, especially during Chinese New Year because of its auspicious meaning. Similar to White Pomfret, it has a smooth and buttery texture with very few fine bones, making it very easy to prepare and enjoy, even for kids. Chinese Pomfret from Pontian has a hint of sweet taste in its savoury flavour that is unique and cannot be found elsewhere. Our favourite way to enjoy the fish is steaming it Teo Chew or Cantonese style with minimal seasoning so that the delicious original flavour is not over-powered.

斗鲳是在马来西亚与新加坡最受欢迎的鱼种之一。”鲳“字与"昌”字同音,被视为吉利的象征,因此农历新年期间,一条好的斗鲳可叫价上百。斗鲳与白鲳相似,肉质细嫩顺滑,骨刺也少,是老少咸宜的好鱼。笨珍野生斗鲳,有别于来自其他海域的斗鲳,它的口味比一般来得更加清甜。最适合潮州蒸 / 港蒸,建议少许调味以保留斗鲳原始的鲜味。

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.
