Harpoon Spadefish 中江鱼

Harpoon Spadefish from Pontian has a unique sweet flavour that cannot be found elsewhere. It has a tender texture and is commonly steamed with 'cai po' (salted radish) or cooked with Assam gravy. There is a famous served dish in Pontian, known as Tiong Kang Bee Hon (中江米粉). Due to its strong distinct flavour, it is recommended to cook with heavy seasoning. It is rare fish species that can only be found in certain areas like Kukup, Pontian and Batu Pahat. Harpoon Spadefish’s head looks like a monkey so the Malay community also named it Ikan Monyet. 笨珍野生的中江鱼有别于来自其他海域的中江鱼,它的口味更加清甜。它通常搭配菜脯或亚参酱汁蒸煮。中江鱼以笨珍“中江米粉”闻名。它带有浓郁的口感,肉质柔软,建议搭配调味料一起享用。据说它品种稀有,只能在龟咯、笨珍、峇株巴辖(Batu Pahat)这一带才能找到,音译自Tongkang。中江鱼的头部长得像“猴子”,所以有些马来同胞也称它们为“Ikan Monyet”。

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.
