Texture & Taste
Cobia fish looks almost like Seer Fish at one glance, but the texture and taste are way different.
The texture of the Cobia fish flesh is moist, flaky when cooked, yet firm. It is perfect for patties or fish burgers where the flesh will hold in good shape and also absorb flavors.
The taste of the Cobia fish has a sweet flavor with a tinge of salinity too, depending on the catchment areas. The meat is white, not fishy, and great for all cuisines.
Cobia is a delicate fish and is the best ingredient for baked fish, Kerala-style fish fry recipes, or Naadan Kudumpulli Modha fish curry preparation. For continental cuisine, you can try the Roasted Cobia recipe with chili oil and peppers.
