Hybrid Grouper
Aqquua Farms, Thailand

"The quality of this hybrid grouper in my opinion is very pristine. I was able to work with this fish and apply multiple preparations like whole fried, seared with the skin on which imparts great flavor (yes you can eat the skin) and also raw preparation like ceviche and sashimi. This fish is very versatile, it has a good oil content and firm texture it also yields more as opposed to regular grouper at that size. Giving the status of our oceans and overfishing this is a fish I would stand behind and prepare for my patrons to promote sustainability. The hybrid grouper is a phenomenal fish – I can’t wait to cook it again!"
