Pomfret Fish

Posted on November 8th, 2012 by Matt | Posted in Notes & News, Seafood

The Pomfret is a Hawaiian deepwater fish with a white to pinkish flesh. Known as Mong Chong in Hawaii, it is usually only found in restaurants, but we have a special delivery of a few pounds for LifeSource customers. Pomfret is an excellent source of lean protein, and is rich in niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, phosphorus, and selenium. Pomfret has about 350 mg. of Omega 3’s per four ounce serving. Its high oil content makes it ideal for grilling, broiling, baking or in tempura. Try a little Hawaiian treat, fresh Mong Chong!
