Prawns are a crowd favourite at the Sydney Fish Market – and with good reason.

Prawns are popularly grilled, crumbed, poached, stir-fried and barbecued.
Known as the steak of the ocean, swordfish is one of the fleshiest fish you can get at the Sydney Fish Market.

“White fish” describes a range of mild-tasting, affordable, white-fleshed fish: John Dory, Cod and Bass are popular types that are always available at the Sydney Fish Market. White fish tend to have a succulent, flaky texture that make them one of the most versatile seafood ingredients to cook with. They’re fantastic for frying, baking, pasting and using in soups.
