about spencer gulf hiramasa kingfish

At Clean Seas, they’re proud to farm their Spencer Gulf Hiramasa Kingfish in a remote location off the Eyre Peninsula town of Port Lincoln in South Australia. The taste of their Kingfish is as clean and pure as the pristine waters in which it’s raised. The Spencer Gulf is one of the cleanest bodies of water in Australia, with nothing between the waters where the Spencer Gulf Hiramasa Kingfish are raised and the Antarctic but the icy, vast expanse of the Southern Ocean.

The Spencer Gulf Hiramasa Kingfish is large and powerful. When landed, it’s a much more delicate proposition: its flesh retains layers of subtlety and intrigue. Japanese sushi masters consider Kingfish the best fish in the world for sashimi. It’s firm but distinctively delicate.

The taste is unparalleled. Sweet. Fresh. It lasts just the right amount of time on the palate. It can carry other flavours while retaining its own sublime characteristics. It can be mildly cured or marinated in lime juice. It can be slow-cooked, pan fried, or BBQ. The ways are endless….
