Glacier 51 toothfish at Cleanfish Australia, Sydney

We have stolen this piece of writing from Does My Bomb Look Big In This, who wants to save the world – one meal at a time!

“Ask any of the top restaurants in Sydney where their seafood comes from, and chances are many of them will say Joto Fresh Fish, especially if they’re serving sustainable seafood.  Word gets out, and after fielding countless calls from people who’ve dined in fancy restaurants wanting to buy their seafood retail, the folk behind this restaurant-quality fish monger have registered and opened a fish market called Cleanfish Australia.

Between 8am and midday every Saturday morning, you’ll find a mini-market of produce as well as a wonderful selection of fish you won’t see everywhere, at 10 Baker Street, Banksmeadow.

I took home Balmain bugs from Coffs Harbour, kingfish sashimi, green prawns and some beautiful pieces of Glacier 51 Toothfish – the ‘wagyu of the fish world’. The fishermen travel eight days to reach this remote fishing ground, and fish these bottom-dwellers for three months of the year. Fried in clarified butter for three minutes on each side, the resulting toothfish filets are truly astounding!”
