Raw fish in coconut cream

rohoman, Jan 26, 9:29am
Is Hoki any good for this? It's always in the reduced to clear area at my super market so I thought I might get some and give it a go, but no point in wasting money if it's not suitable.

Its OK but inclinded to "mush" better off with a firmer fish like terahiki

I don't know about the relative firmness of Hoki compared to other fish, but I wouldn't use any fish "reduced to clear" in a raw fish recipe.
My rule is fresh fish (of any kind), two-ish hours in lemon juice, thick coconut cream and whatever extras I have on hand (fresh chilli, coriander, maybe some red onion etc).

I agree. It is essential that the fish is super-fresh so don't buy "reduced to clear" fish of any kind. Look for the freshest there is. My favourite for raw fish is trevally - buy a whole trevally with bright eyes, get it filleted. It will not be expensive.

Nothing wrong with hoki provided it is as fresh as you can get it. Compared to the price of other types of fish, hoki is a good deal. Moki? Now that is not very nice.

If it’s too reduced to clear it’s probably not as fresh as it should be for eating raw
