White-Spotted Spinefoot | Safi (U.A.E) (Medium) (1 Kg)
Approx. Size: 5-8 pieces per Kg
Safi or Rabbit fish does not need any introduction. A local delicacy Safi is known to be fried and eaten with rice. Rabbitfish is an excellent fish with a good, moderate flavor throughout. The flesh stays very firm when cooked by any method and it's good for curries. It flakes apart very easily if poached, so care is needed.
Rabbitfish is very easy to fillet with an easy to follow bone structure. You will lose the least flesh if you cut the ribcage from the backbone with kitchen shears and pull the ribs from the fillet with long nose pliers. They come out easily and cleanly.
Rabbitfish have high quantities of essential amino acids required by the human body and an excellent source of vitamin A.
