Why Fresh Seafood is So Much Better!

Fresh seafood is known to have many health benefits and should actually be a regular part of your diet. The American Heart Association recommends that you consume at least two servings of fish a week. Fish are rich in Omega-3s which reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and blood clots. In addition to this, Hunky Dory fish is always fresh with a difference you can taste.

Health Benefits

As stated above, regular consumption of fish can lower your risk of heart disease and blood clots. It is also believed that nutrition can be lost by freezing a fish and defrosting it. Since fish are mainly composed of water and freezing fish causes the water to expand, it is commonly thought that water-soluble vitamins such as vitamin B12 can be lost in the process. Some of the other benefits of regular consumption of fish are:

  •   Supports brain development
  •   Lowers depression
  •   Lowers risk of Alzheimer’s disease
  •   Improves skin and hair


In the old days before refrigeration, fish was caught and consumed within hours. This is because fish does not have a very long shelf life. And when it is frozen for too long, many believe that the difference in taste is apparent.

A fresh fish will obviously taste fresher than a thawed out one. The texture will be less mushy and more consistent throughout. Hunky Dory uses only the freshest of fish, so you can be assured that the fish that arrives on your doorstep is fresh, delicious and ready to be cooked.

Our Favourite Seafood Dishes to Make at Home

Want to try Hunky Dory’s delicious seafood but unsure of what to make? Below we’ve got some of our favourite recipes for you to try out.

Marinara Mix - Spaghetti Marinara

Make a spaghetti marinara with Hunky Dory’s Marinara Mix. What you will need are as follows:

  •   60ml olive oil
  •   4 finely chopped garlic cloves
  •   6 anchovy fillets
  •   400g finely chopped tomatoes
  •   200ml dry white wine
  •   500g spaghetti
  •   300g mussels
  •   800g marinara mix
  •   200g peeled green prawns
  •   Torn parsley leaves
  •   Salt

Now it’s time to begin cooking! Follow these three simple steps for the best spaghetti marinara.

Step 1

Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large fry pan over medium-low heat and add garlic and anchovies. Cook for 1-2 minutes until anchovies have melted. Next, add tomatoes and wine and bring to a simmer, then cook for about 20 minutes on low heat.

Step 2

Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling salt water. Drain, then return to the pan and toss in a small amount of olive oil.

Step 3

Add mussels to the pan of sauce and cook with cover for 1 minute while occasionally shaking the pan. Add the remaining seafood and cook for 2-3 minutes until the marinara mix and prawns are cooked through and the mussels have opened. Season to taste with salt and ground black pepper. Add the drained pasta, toss, then divide among bowls and serve garnished with parsley leaves.

Classic Fish and Chips

For classic fish and chips, we recommend Hunky Dory’s Flathead Fillets. Here are the ingredients needed:

  •   4 large pontiac potatoes, peeled, cut into 1cm-thick chips
  •   185g plain flour
  •   330ml lager
  •   Sunflower oil
  •   800g skinless flathead fillets
  •   Lemon wedges
  •   Iceberg lettuce wedges

Step 1

Add chips to a large saucepan of lightly salted water boiled over high heat. Drain and dry completely.

Step 2

Whisk flour, lager and 2 teaspoons salt in a bowl until it is smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Step 3

Half-fill a deep-fryer or large saucepan with oil and heat to 160°C. Fry the chips, in batches, for 5-7 minutes until soft but still pale, then drain.

Step 4

Preheat oven to low. Increase oil to 190°C. When hot, fry chips again, in batches, for a further 2-3 minutes until crisp and golden. Drain on paper towel, place on a tray, in a single layer, and keep warm in the oven.

Step 5

Dust flathead fillets in the flour. Dip into the batter, one at a time, allowing excess to drain off. Carefully place into the hot oil. Cook the fish for 3-4 minutes until golden and crisp, then drain.

Step 6

Remove chips from oven and sprinkle fish and chips with sea salt. Serve immediately with lemon wedges and iceberg lettuce.

Garlic Butter Baked Salmon

Use Hunky Dory’s Salmon Fillets and make buttery baked salmon at home! You will need:

  •   500g fingerling potatoes, halved
  •   2 tablespoons olive oil
  •   1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  •   1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  •   4 170 g skinless salmon fillets
  •   2 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
  •   2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  •   1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  •   1/2 cup melted unsalted butter
  •   3 bunches asparagus
  •   2 tablespoons dry white wine
  •   1 sliced lemon

Follow these instructions and you will be able to enjoy baked salmon in no time!

Step 1

Heat oven to 200°C. Using a large-rimmed baking sheet, toss together potatoes with olive oil, 1/2 tablespoon of garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Spread out in an even layer and roast for 15 minutes until they begin to soften and turn brown.

Step 2

Move potatoes over to one side of the sheet pan and place salmon down the centre. Rub salmon evenly with 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic and 2 tablespoons parsley. Add asparagus to the opposite side of the pan.

Step 3

Combine 1/4 cup lemon juice and 1/4 cup melted butter together and pour the mixture over salmon and asparagus. Season everything with salt and pepper.

Step 4

Return to oven and continue baking for about 10 minutes or until the potatoes are golden and tender and the salmon is no longer transparent.

Step 5

In a small bowl, combine the remaining butter, garlic and lemon juice with the wine. Serve with the salmon, veggies and lemon slices.
