Opah has a very round body. It is the only known warm-blooded fish and its round and flat body is free of bones. Its flesh appreciated for its fineness.
ORIGIN: New Zealand
- Fishing technique: line caught.
- Its oily flesh has four orange-pink hues. Its texture is fibrous and soft. The fish offers a range of aromatic and distinctive flavours, without being too powerful. The upper part of the loin, red-orange or dark pink, is creamy and ideal for sashimi. The lower part of the loin has a gradation of colours and more pronounced aromas. It is at its best toasted or smoked since it contains a higher oil content. Finally, the bright red "cheek" and pectoral areas are rich and unctuous.
- Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and high-quality protein.
