Red Snapper 红鱼

Not your typical farmed fish —— Red Snapper farmed in the Kukup mangrove sea water is only fed with natural small fish instead of artificial feed. Unlike what people expect from most pond-farmed fish, this sea-farmed fish has a fresh sweet flavour with absolutely no muddy taste! The meat is tender but holds together very well during cooking, making it the perfect option for steaming, making curry fish head or fish head hotpot. Kukup Red Snapper is also widely used by restaurants in Singapore to serve at wedding banquets. The taste and texture of Red Snapper and Golden Snapper are highly similar and are often interchangeable in most recipes.

Freshness is our number one concern. Our Kukup farms, processes and delivers its premium Red Snapper right here in Pontian. To ensure freshness, we harvest our fish and vacuum-packed within hours of processing. There are no long distribution chains to compromise the freshness and flavour of our fish.



We sell the best-tasting Red Snapper available. That’s a bold claim, but after one taste we’re pretty sure you’ll agree. You’ll find our premium Red Snapper fillets and steaks to be mildly sweet and incredibly clean tasting. Thanks to the pristine ocean waters in which we farm our Red Snapper , our products have no muddy or “fishy” taste.



We feed this fish to our families, so we’re kinda fanatical about the quality of the water in and around our farm. We purposefully located our ocean enclosures in strong currents which keep clean, oxygen-rich waters flowing through them. In addition to our clean waters, you can rest assured that we do not use any hormones or antibiotics to encourage the growth of our Red Snapper . We believe that the best way to grow robust, healthy fish is to simply feed them high-quality food and let them swim in a clean, natural environment.



Our Red Snapper eat nothing but top-quality fishmeal food, basically we feed our fish with small fries, which has little or no wet market value, caught from our Pontian shore.That means fish that are tasty and naturally high in heart-healthy and brain-boosting omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.



With The Fish Club, there is no slopping through the wet market to buy fish. There’s no more lugging dripping bags of not-so-fresh fish home from supermarket. And you no longer need to worry about the fish in the sweltering boot of your car as you drive home. Let us take care of everything. Premium fish, super fresh, delivered ice-chilled to your doorstep.


How To Make: Roasted Whole Red Snapper



    • One whole 3-pound red snapper, cleaned and scaled
    • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
    • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
    • 2 scallions, finely chopped
    • 1 garlic clove, minced
    • 1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil, plus more for rubbing


    • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
    • 2 tablespoons salted capers, rinsed and finely chopped
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil, plus more for rubbing


    • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
    • 1 garlic clove, minced
    • 1 serrano chile, seeded and minced
    • 1 teaspoon chopped thyme
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil, plus more for rubbing


Step 1
Pick your favorite flavor combination (Asian, Mediterranean or Caribbean, at left).
Step 2
Choose one of the flavor combinations and chop all of the ingredients except the oil together with a large pinch of salt. Transfer the paste to a small bowl and stir in the oil. Make 5 parallel 3-inch-long slashes on each side of the snapper, slicing almost through to the bone. Lightly season the fish with salt and fill the slashes with the paste. Rub the fish all over with canola oil.
Step 3
Preheat the oven to 425°. Transfer the fish to a heavy rimmed baking sheet so it stands upright. To keep the fish stable, splay the belly flaps and set a crumpled foil ball under the tail. Roast the fish for 30 minutes, until the flesh just flakes. Transfer the fish to a platter. Using 2 forks, lift the fillets off the bones and serve.

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.

Read: How Blast Freezing Improves the Quality of Fish

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.
