Spotted Sicklefish 曹喜

Spotted Sicklefish from Pontian has a unique sweet flavour that cannot be found elsewhere. Spotted Sicklefish has a similar taste to pomfret. It has a tender texture with a more affordable price compared to the pomfret. Its meat is generally slightly muddy and should be cooked with seasonings. It is suitable for pan-frying and half-fried cooking with bean paste sauce. 笨珍野生的曹喜有别于来自其他海域的曹喜,它的口味会更加清甜。曹喜的口感鱼鲳鱼相似,肉质柔软,价格却比鲳鱼来得更实惠。它的肉质一般会略带土味,需要搭配适当的调味料烹煮。它适合搭配豆瓣酱来煎炸或者半煎煮。 Chinese Name(s): 曹喜 Local Name(s): Daun Baru Origin: Pontian 产地:笨珍 Type: Wild Caught 种类:野生 Flavour: Medium 口味:中等 Texture: Tender 肉质:柔软 Cooking Method: Steam Half Fry Cook / Pan Fry 烹煮方式:半煎 / 煎炸 Weight Loss after cleaning (whole fish): 15-20% 清理后重量减少(全鱼):15-20% Caution: Customized cutting is NOT available. 注意:恕不接受客制化切割 Storage: Keep frozen at -18°C.

How To Make: Filipino Style Assam Fish (Singgang)


  • 1 medium Red Onions (julienne)
  • 3 cloves Garlic (chopped)
  • Few slices of Ginger
  • 1 Lemongrass (slit in long halves)
  • Few Bird Eye Chili (chili padi)
  • 60gm Tamarind pulp soaked in 1 cup of water
  • Few finger size Okra (locally known as Ladyfinger)
  • One medium Sickle Fish


1) Boil the Tamarind juice, onion, garlic, chili, lemongrass, chili and ginger in a pot.
2) Add salt and sugar to taste (not too much sugar, just enough to balance the sourness of the Tamarind juice)
3) Once boil, add in the fish and Okras. Let it simmer in low-medium heat for 10mins.
4) Switch off flame and cover pot. Let the heat cooked the fish for another 5mins.
5) Serves hot with white rice and Sambal Belacan as condiment. Enjoy!
NOTE: Gravy must be boiling before adding the fish. I've seen some cooks who will add the fish while waiting for the gravy to boil. They believed that once the gravy boils, the fish will be cooked at the same time. In fact, that resulted in broken and dry fish steaks.

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.
