New Zealand Sea Bream is mostly known as "Tai Snapper or "New Zealand Snapper" which is beloved in high-end white tablecloth and sushi restaurants.
Sustainably certified, it is wild caught on long lines and humanely killed by the Japanese "Iki-Jime" method which ensures there is very little stress put on the fish. The pinkish-white meat has a firm, medium texture and delicate, mild flavor that holds up well to all cooking methods.
Note: New Zealand Snapper is not the same breed as the snapper common to the U.S. Is very similar to the highly sought after Japanese Madai fish.
