Wild-caught skinless Monkfish fillets from New Zealand. They have a firm texture and pearly white flesh that holds together well when cooked. A very versatile fish that can be baked, barbequed, poached, steamed, fried, or served in soup or chowder. When cooked it has similar characteristics and flavor to Rock Lobster. The fillets are medium-sized and thin which allows for quick and convenient cooking and easy portion control.

Each pack weighs 750g (1.65lbs.) and contains around 8 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.

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.

Very Tasty

Very tasty flavour.


Translated from Japanese: It was delicious. I sautéed it, and I liked the fact that it was not too soft. It's frozen in pieces so it's easy to use. I will order again.


Translated from Japanese: I’m very satisfied with the moderate thickness and fillingness. I have only tried frying it, but I’d like to try various other cooking methods, too.
