OPAKAPAKA (pink snapper)
These snappers can be caught year round in Hawaiian waters although winter is considered the peak season. In modern times Opakapaka has been the most abundant Hawaiian bottom fish in terms of landed weight and total catch value. Caught in depths of 300 to 500 feet of water, Opakapaka are moist, delicate fish with white fillets that melt in your mouth when sauteed, baked, steamed, or broiled. Their size ranges from 4 to 14 pounds. They are caught exclusively by hook and line methods and are considered to be some of the most difficult fish to catch..
MAHI MAHI (dorado)
Mahimahi is thin-skinned with firm, light pink flesh. It has a delicate flavor that is almost sweet. Hawaii’s mahi mahi is a highly-regarded product which is best eaten when fresh. Local mahi mahi is superior in quality to the available substitutes — lower-priced fresh mahi mahi from Latin America and imported frozen fillets from Taiwan and Latin America.
Swordfish quality can vary greatly because swordfish boats will be at sea for different lengths of time, from a few days to nearly a month. Swordfish has a firm, meaty texture and is a good source of selenium, niacin, vitamin B12, and zinc. This fish from Norpac, our supplier, are the highest of quality and flavor. Best grilled slightly, not to be overcooked due to toughness.
