Sydneysiders are no stranger to seafood feasts. Thanks to our coastal location, we’re a piscatorial paradise with access to some of the most amazing seafood in the world. But it’s our fishmongers who deserve the credit: the wholesalers and retailers who are trained in selecting, handling, boning and selling us the best, freshest fish possible. From calamari, crab, clams and pippies to fish fillets and beautifully juicy prawns, they work behind the scenes to hook us up with the perfect catch, every time.
Next time you’re in the mood for seafood (or stocking up for Christmas lunch), head straight to one of Sydney’s top fishmongers.
Don’t have time to go to the seafood market? Manettas is an online outlet run by Peter Manettas, who spent his childhood watching fish being prepared at his dad’s restaurant, Nick’s Seafood. The fishmonger sources high-quality seafood from around Australia, and the range is extensive: think fish cutlets, prawns, lobsters, bugs, shellfish, sashimi and even caviar. Manettas also sells the sauces and condiments to jazz up your meal – just place your order before midnight for next-day delivery!
