Tarakihi

Commonly known as the tarakihi or jackass morwong, is found around New Zealand throughout the entire year, but mostly found south of East Cape and around the South Island. They are associated with shallow reefs as juveniles, but adults tend to school over open seafloors  in deeper waters of 50 to 250m. They are rarely seen in waters above 15-20m, with the exception of the South Island, where they can be found in the 5 to 10 metre range. Tarakihi are highly regarded by fishermen and for many years were New Zealand’s second most important commercial catch. Tarakakihi is best enjoyed by Sauté with skin on, baked, BBQ’d whole, steamed, crumbed. Check out Tarakihi our on our menu

Dory

Dory is a salt water fish, known for its white, meaty flesh which is delicate and sweet. The common name dory is shared (officially and colloquially) by members of several different families of large-eyed, silvery, deep-bodied, laterally compressed, and roughly discoid marine fish. As well as resembling each other, dories are also similar in habit: most are deep-sea and many species support commercial fisheries and are considered excellent for eating and can be baked, poached, pan-fried with crispy skin. They are found in the warm waters around New Zealand’s North Island, and are commonly caught north of the Bay of Plenty. Check out Dory our on our menu
