After multiple test rounds using different proteins and temperatures, we finally decided on the tilapia fish because for one, it truly held up to the texture we wanted – firm, yet tender.
Contrary to its unfortunate string of bad rep, the tilapia fish is actually one of the best sources of clean fish given its lean nature and high protein count. A while back, there were a number of reports on unethical farms in China where, like many other farmed fish, farmed tilapia in overcrowded waters caused it to have little access to feed.
That’s changed now, but more importantly, we’re proud to carry tilapia from ethical fish farms and can be certain of its quality and grade. Just like our sausages and beef, we believe responsibly sourced food can go along way for both us and the environment. Whoohoo!
