approximately 5-pounds of Uku Fillets -- usually 6-7 fillets - Maui

Commonly known as Gray Snapper or Jobfish, Uku is caught year round in Hawaii, although it is easily available during its spawning season (May-July).

Most Uku are harvested among the main Hawaiian Islands, and the catch is sold while it is still very fresh. When properly cared for, Uku has a long shelf life, comparable to that of Opakapaka.

Like other snappers from Hawaii, Uku has clear, pale pink flesh that is delicately flavored, moist, and firm. Some chefs say that Uku is slightly stronger flavored than the very delicate Opakapaka. The last time I was in Hawaii with my family, Uku was the freshest option -- and it was consistently great every time.

Uku is sometimes a substitute for Opakapaka and can be prepared in the same ways, including baking, broiling, sauteing and steaming. Uku harvested during the summer spawning season is often rich in natural fat

Uku is a medium to small sized fish, growing to 4-18 pounds. 5 pounds of Uku usually translates to6-7 fillets. It most readily available between the months of May and October.
