Our wonderfully appetising hot-smoked gemfish has a golden coloured flesh with creamy white flesh that is melt in the mouth succulent.
If you know someone who loves smoked fish, you can look forward to seeing their eyes light up when they taste our line-caught, freshly smoked gemfish.
Possibly our most versatile species that will compliment any dish, gemfish is heavenly on its own, on a cracker, stirred through pasta with pesto, in a risotto or tossed in a green salad.
Gemfish is the only species of smoked fish that we choose to leave the bones in! The long curved bone that remains through the smoking process helps retain the integrity of the fish as well as the moisture and flavour. The bones large and easy to identify and remove and we believe the taste justifies any minor inconvenience.
Maori know Gemfish as Tikati and they are also called Silver Kingfish or Southern Kingfish. Subjective to opinion, they are also not particularly attractive, even dubbed the "ugly fish" by some, with their long spindly bodies and large teeth. Hard to believe such succulent meat comes from such a grisly creature.. beauty lies within!
