As one of WA’s most premium species, Red Emperor has become a favourite for its sweet flavour and firm, pearl white flesh. Primarily caught in the tropical waters of Western Australia, fillets of Red Emperor can be cooked in many ways making it one of the most versatile species available. Red Emperor is a superb finfish to eat and its white, juicy flesh is delicious

Whitings are prized for their firm, clean, sweet-tasting white flesh and its delicate flake. Some argue this is Australia best table fish. As such they should be treated with respect and not overpowered with flavour. The King George whiting is endemic to Australia, inhabiting the south coast of the country from Jurien Bay, Western Australia to Botany Bay, New South Wales
