Description 

approximately 5 pounds - 2-4 fillets - Maui

The flesh of the Opakapaka, or Crimson Snapper, is a clear, light pink and has a very delicate flavor - although the skin color can range from light brown to brighter colors. They are usually caught at depths of 30 to 100 fathoms.

Opakapaka is a small fish, usually growing to only 10 or 15 pounds. 5 pounds of Opakapaka will come in 2-4 fillets. The fish is most abundantly available between the months of October and February.

Opakapaka is considered a prestige fish in high-end restaurants and is well suited to baking, poaching and sauteing. In the winter months, they have a higher oil content and are used in raw preparations as well.

You must pre-order your Opakapaka by end-of-day Thursday for shipping the following week. Please indicate what ship week you would like if you are ordering farther in advance. We will ship early in the week to ensure the fish arrives before the weekend. You will be contacted by e-mail to confirm your order.

For more details or larger orders, please call 1-800-596-0885 or email: shopkeeper@chefshop.com.
additional information:
- Price includes Priority Overnight shipping.
- We try to get as close to ordered weight as possible, and still maintain the integrity of the fish. Price is pro-rated to the closest tenth of a pound at the same per-pound rate.

- All Hawaiian Fish is shipped Priority Overnight. Locations east of the Rockies will take two days to arrive.
- It is important that someone be home to receive the fish when it arrives, to make sure it is refrigerated right away. It may be better to send it to a business address if you are not home during the day.
