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.
