When we first heard of the Honolulu Fish Co., we were intrigued, to say the least. The Culture Curators are renowned foodies for sure, but it usually comes prepared and ready to go. That’s not the case in this instance.
Honolulu Fish Company isn’t a restaurant. They’re known as a top seafood distributor offering more than 30 varieties of eco-friendly Pacific water fish to over 3,000 customers, including top chefs across the country. Contactless seafood shipped directly from Pacific waters to our door within 24-48 hours? The logistics alone are impressive. When the delivery arrived, impressive took on a whole new meaning. There were no expectations of what we were getting, but Honolulu Fish Co. blew us away.
It is the only direct distributor in the United States that offers more than 14 species of sashimi-grade fish. With more than 20 years of experience, HFC is known for its exceptional high-quality products. The company is committed to the environment and promoting sustainability in its fishing practices.
At Honolulu Fish Company, each fish is chosen with great care by sashimi experts. Early mornings are spent at the Honolulu fish market, Hand-selecting and personally inspecting fresh hauls to ensure it meets company standards. HFC doesn’t buy from those that practice net fishing, as this destroys the natural habitat, and all fish are exclusively hook-caught. Fish that have not reached reproductive maturity yet aren’t allowed either.
The team at HFC selects packages and prepares its fresh seafood to arrive at homes and restaurant kitchens via FedEx and UPS within 24 to 48 hours. Its custom box is designed to keep fish at 40 degrees or less for 48 hours.
The Honolulu Fish Co. Sushi kit was a perfect reason to get the gang together and enjoy a cocktail, exceptional sushi, and great company. A few Googles and a Youtube University session were all we needed to get the idea going, and the Sashimi started. As the holidays approach, this might be the perfect solution to make the cooler winter night feel a little warmer with some hospitality and a tropical feel straight from the pacific.
Head over to the Honolulu Fish Co. to find out more about their other amazing offerings. While you’re at it, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more from our Food & Drink section coming soon!
