Sushi grade Tilapia, also known as Izumidai or Izumi-Dai, is a firm, somewhat sweet fish with a clean taste. Shiromi is the name given to it in sushi restaurants. Tilapia has a medium-firm texture similar to Red Snapper when raw, making it a suitable option. Ours are available in 160-gram trays, making them an excellent alternative for cooking wonderful sushi at home.

Tilapia is typically touted as a healthier alternative to other fish forms and can help improve health. Tilapia, like any fish, has low-fat content and high protein content. Tilapia also has essential amino acids and is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are crucial for heart and blood vessel health.

In Asian cuisine, izumidai is a common choice. Steamed, battered, or raw for sushi, it can be prepared in a variety of ways. It’s a terrific alternative to red snapper and other white fish used for Shiromi because of its deliciously mild flavour and low price. Serve fresh homemade sushi to your family and friends with a glass of light-bodied white wine like Riesling.
