Rankin Cod

Rockcods are suitable for a wide range of cooking styles, they can be steamed, poached, deep-fried, pan-fried, stir-fried, baked, grilled, barbecued, or eaten raw (sashimi). The species are popular due to their low oiliness and juicy, thick flakes. Because they are a larger fish they are often sold as fillets, but can be found whole which makes for a stunning centre piece for a group occasion....

Quality Check
All seafood quality Check

Seafood is a perishable food. The moment it is harvested its quality is at its highest. Producers are aware of this and take measures to maintain this quality, either through storing the seafood on ice, freezing it, or keeping it alive.

The Australian Seafood Quality Index (AQI) manual is an accurate method for measuring changes in chilled seafood through the whole chain, from the point of harvest through transport, auction, distribution and sale. It was developed by Sydney Fish Market (SFM) based on work from within Australia and overseas.

It provides highly reliable way to assess seafood quality. The Quality Checklist provided below provides a simplified overview that will help seafood consumers choose their seafood.
