Sea Bass has firm white flesh and thicker fillets than most which makes it suitable for a wide range of dishes. A superb fish with a creamy white, slightly oily flesh and good sweet flavour. The farmed origin enables us to offer it all year round.
It is a hunter with a steely blue back and silver flanks. The gill cover has a very sharp edge and is protected by two vicious spines and the wild members of the species can grow up to 1m and 5kg, but farmed fish are usually sold from 300g to 1kg.
They prefer warmer waters of the Mediterranean coasts along to Southern England.

These fillets are very versatile, we love them simply grilled or fried, finished with a little butter and a squeeze of lemon.
All raw fish products must be cooked thoroughly until they are piping hot.

Your meat order is kept cool in transit because we either use an

ice packs. Our ice packs are made with a frozen water-based gel, which
keeps the meat at the correct temperature for up to 48 hours. When the
ice does melt, it stays as a gel, which prevents the delivery becoming
