Types of Fish

There are lots of types of fish we use in Asian cooking, here are just some of the ones we like to use when we are making homemade fish dishes:


Grouper is a lean, moist, mild flavor fish. It’s got large flakes and a firm texture. The Red Grouper has has a slightly sweet flavor than Black Grouper. We use this fish a lot!


Cod is a mild and somewhat buttery white fish. It’s got pretty delicate and flaky flesh – which is awesome when there’s a lot of sauce in the dish! It goes all in the crevices!

Sea Bass

Sea bass is another good white fish for Asian cooking. Similar to cod – sea bass also is a mild, slightly sweet, white fish. It’s flesh is described as moist moist, buttery, and tender.


Flounder is also a mild white fish – it is more delicate so if you want to cook with this fish, you may want to be more gentle or else it could easily fall apart. But outside of that it it is also similar to cod and sea bass – slightly sweet and mild.


Salmon has a rich, fatty, and buttery flavor profile. While it does have a distant taste, it somehow still works with a lot of dishes, and does not clash – and adds an additional layer of flavor to everything!


Pomfret is actually may different types of marine fish species. It is a fish that is very popular to eat in South Asia and India. It is also a dish you can find in Chinese cuisine. It’s not hard to see why so many people like it – its fish meat is soft and buttery when cooked!


Mackerel is a common name applied to a number of different species of pelagic fish. Mackerel contains more calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, and potassium. On the other hand, tuna is higher in phosphorus and copper and lower in sodium. Taste wise it has been described to be similar to tuna, but I think it’s actually tastier!


A tuna is a saltwater fish that belongs to the tribe Thunnini. The Thunnini includes15 species across five genera. Tuna has a buttery and creamy taste combined with a salty and umami flavor.
