Fresh Hirame (Olive Flounder)

  • 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 within two days (one for processing, one for shipping) with the skin-off and no bones, ready to be prepared.

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!!
