Riviera Seafood Club's Fresh Hirame (Olive Flounder), scientifically named Paralichthys olivaceus, is imported and harvested using the Ikejime method in farms of Korea. With every bite, your taste buds are greeted with a very mild and versatile flavor profile, complemented by a firm to semi-firm texture with the skin-off and no bones. Our Hirame, also known as Bastard Halibut or Flat Fish, is a semi-transparent to opaque white meat that pairs well with most bold sauces. Olive Flounder is prepared as a filet.
Riviera's Fresh Hirame (Olive Flounder) is individually packaged and shipped using overnight express delivery. The versatility of Fresh Hirame will allow you to prepare it in a number of ways including sashimi, sushi, and ceviche or light searing and sauteing. It will arrive at your table with the skin-off and no bones, ready to be prepared.
By superfreezing our fresh seafood, in special ultra-cold -60°C freezers, we are able to lock in the freshness and texture of our sushi-grade seafood, while also allowing you to store our products in your conventional freezer for later consumption.
Also, to help many of our customers, most of our superfrozen seafood is shipped out in 8oz portions so you can order more at one time to save on shipping costs, and so you can thaw only the amount you need.
Perfect quality without a doubt. Riviera never lets me down! Just wish it was a little cheaper and available more! Recommend for sure!
I'm a huge fan of hirame but I won't eat it if it's not super fresh. This is my 3rd time ordering from Riviera (mostly order Tuna) and wow this was the freshest and most delicious hirame that I've ever tried in a long time! Thank you, Riviera and keep up the good work, please!
Super fresh and tasty!! I can't wait to place another order in the near future. Highly recommended!!
