Exclusive Hawaiian seafood showcase happening March 6-12!

Enjoy a series of freshly caught seafood delivered directly from the Hawaiian islands exclusively to Sunset Foods this Wednesday, March 6 through Tuesday, March 12.

While Sunset sells fresh, sustainably-caught Hawaiian seafood year-round, this week we are celebrating island-like flavors by overnight air-expressing an expanded assortment of freshly caught fish direct from Hawaii.

Fresh Hawaiian fish that you can get at your local Sunset Foods include: Ahi Tuna, Shutome, Mahi Mahi, Onaga, Ono, Monchong, and Opah. All of these fish are line-caught in the open ocean off of the Hawaiian Islands.

Ahi Tuna

Ahi Tuna

Also known as Yellowfin Tuna, this exceptional fish can be served raw as sashimi or sushi, offers a distinctive yet mild flavor, and has a pleasantly firm texture. Ahi is also delicious lightly seared and will absorb the flavor of whatever it’s cooked in.

Opah

Opah

Also known as Moonfish, this distinctive tropical fish combines a rich flavor with a firm and hearty texture. Opah’s pinkish orange flesh, is easy to prepare, and is as delicious raw, steamed, or smoked as it is baked, broiled, or sautéed.

Mahi Mahi

Mahi Mahi

Also known as Dorado, this deliciously sweet and perfectly mild fish offers a crowd-pleasing flaky texture without being dry. Mahi Mahi is wonderfully versatile and is well-suited for any recipe that calls for white fish.                             

Ono

Ono

Ono means “good to eat” in Hawaiian, and for good reason! This exceptionally sweet and buttery fish is appealing to many, and can be used in a variety of dishes. Like Ahi Tuna, Ono is especially delicious when served grilled or even raw.

Onaga

Onaga

Also known as Hawaiian Red Snapper, this world-renowned fish combines a mildly sweet flavor with an exquisite texture. Onaga can be served raw, but also becomes sweeter and delicately flaky when cooked.                                     

Shutome

Shutome

Also known as Broadbill Swordfish, this versatile and premium fish is easy to prepare and offers rich flavor as well as a smooth and tender texture. Shutome is ideal for grilling and is packed with lean protein, omega-3s, and vitamin B6.

Monchong

Monchong

Monchong is a versatile white-fleshed fish that can only be found in Hawaii. This unique fish is tender and moist and has a fantastic buttery flavor. Monchong is well-suited to sautéing, baking, and poaching and is also firm enough for the grill.
