Sydney Fish Markets is the largest market of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and the third largest seafood market in terms of variety in the world. It’s an establishment that Sydney siders hold very dear. A working fish market, it sources product both nationally and internationally and trades over 14,500 tonnes of seafood annually – with up to one hundred sustainable seafood species traded every day and approximately 500 species traded annually.
So on a lazy Sunday afternoon we decided to take a trip down and check it out…
Don’t stick your finger in this tub…
While the photo may not give these big bastards justice, they were each about the size of a basket ball.
We got this absolutely gorgeous tray of creamy pacific oysters from Nicholas Seafood that were top notch with a small squeeze of lemon to balance out the slight iodine flavour oysters have.
Walking past the sashimi station at Peters Fish Market was too much to resists …
Leading to this… The slices were so fresh you could easily taste their unique subtle flavours. My favourite of the day was actually the salmon, with its creamy oily flavour and firm fresh bite.
