Wild-caught skin-on Hoki fish fillets from New Zealand. Hoki, also known as Blue Hake or Blue Grenadier has firm succulent flesh with a delicate flavor and low oil content. The fillets are white and flake easily when cooked. Hoki is ideal for most cooking methods including baked, fried, grilled, steamed, curried, and sauteed. The fillets are randomly cut and heavily vary in size and thickness.

Each pack weighs 750g (1.65lbs.) and contains around 4 individual fillets. The fish fillets come individually quick-frozen in a resealable bag for convenience. Simply remove the number of fillets you need to defrost and cook from the bag at any time.

This scientific name for the Hoki fish is the "Macruronus novaezelandiae", and is not to be confused with our Hake fish fillets (Merluccius australis). Click here to check out the Hake fish fillets.

All fish are caught in New Zealand waters by the Talley's fishery which employs New Zealand fishermen. All catches are monitored and managed by the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries using government-regulated quotas to meet sustainability requirements. The fish is caught, processed, frozen, and packed in New Zealand only. We directly import the frozen fish to Japan from New Zealand and no further processing or repackaging is done locally. This way we can guarantee 100% traceability. These fillets hold the "Certified Sustainable Seafood" MSC certification - which is a way of showing that a fishery meets international best practice for sustainable fishing.

White fish with no odor

Translated from Japanese: I lightly beat it to make meunière, added it to soup and steamed and then broken it to put it into fried rice.
Compared to raw cod, it has almost no odor and is easy to eat as it’s without bones.

My 5 year old likes it, too

Translated from Japanese: In order to lose weight, I want to make fish for supper, so I ordered this again. It’s also useful when my son suddenly wants to eat fish. Just put this fish in a pot and you will get delicious soup stock, and it’ll get plumply, so my son will eat it just by using salt. Of course, it’s very delicious sautéed, too. Also when loosened and put in pasta. I live in an area where you can get natural fish, but it's expensive to buy in the amount that matches the stomach of my growing child. This one has a better cost-performance, so it’s really helpful.


Translated from Japanese: It was so delicious that I reordered. I cooked bouillabaisse.


Translated from Japanese: It's boneless and delicious.
I bought it for my dog, but it's big enough for all of us to eat. My family likes it with meunière sauce.


Translated from Japanese: There were some scales left, but it was delicious and frying it was no problem for me.
