The Brassy Trevally is a predator that eats smaller fishes. The scattered black dot along the fish's body above the lateral line distinguishes this from the other trevallys. The meat is firm, dense and sweet, similar to that of the local mullet making it a popular fish meat with kids. For those who prefer a lean fish, this is the one for you, and the meat can be cooked in a variety of ways such as pan-frying, braising and steaming. Marinade it or reduce cooking time so that the meat doesnt dry out.
This Brassy Trevally is wild caught in Hualien by our friends from Fishbar and frozen at site to ensure maximum freshness. Only larger fishes of at least 50cm in length are fished. Read about them here.
Care has been taken to remove the bones, but some may still remain. Please exercise caution when eating.
