Until recently only insiders of the seafood industry & Hawaiian locals knew about Walu and its rare oil which is unique to only a few species on Earth. Considered one of the best-tasting fish in the world, Walu has an insanely rich, buttery flavor that extraordinarily balances its robust, almost foie-gras like characteristics with an elegant delicateness that is stunningly complex.
The flesh of the animal is pure white. Incredibly white actually, which has often lead to the mislabeling of this protein as "Super White Tuna". The stunning white flesh, partnered with the large broad firm size of the loins and obscenely succulent flavor makes Hawaiian Butterfish sought after as one of the ocean's most desired ingredients.
