Golden Perch

Overview

Ideal as fillets or whole, and well suited to baking, shallow frying, grilling, barbecuing and poaching. The fillets, which are meaty, sturdy and retain their shape when cooked, are well suited to stir-fries, soups, risottos and pasta dishes. Golden perch is particularly good steamed and marries well with the Asian flavours of chilli, coriander, soy, ginger and garlic. It is prized in Chinese cuisine for presentation as a steamed finfish.
