Sydney Fish Market

I like my seafood. I’m sure I’ve said this a few times. As a descendant of proud, dedicated fishermen, I'm appreciative of the blessings, from the sea, that mother nature bestows on us.

I can give up beef, chicken, even goat meat. But nothing can separate me from my fish and prawns. One of the things that I consider when I'm looking to move to a new city is its proximity to a harbor. This could mean a wide selection of seafood.

Sydney’s got FISH and prawns and other stuff I don’t know. The seafood market here will make any fisherman’s great grandchild shed tears of joy.

My friend and I went to buy clams but we ended up staying for hours. That was my fault. I had to make the most of my time there since it was my first visit. I wasn’t the only one in awe of the variety of fresh produce on display.

The market is a haven for camera-wielding tourist. There are several restaurants serving mouth-watering seafood dishes. It also has some deli stores, bottle shops and a seafood cooking school.

Warning seafood lovers: this post is picture-heavy and guaranteed to make you hanker for a large serving of your favourite seafood dish.

Fish first.

Yellowfin Tuna

...then the crustaceans, starting with the Alaskan king crab.

Sweet, sweet prawns!

Finally, one that can be found in Calabar Fish Market

Not the periwinkles in our side of the world

....from the food court

I can proudly say that I'm an adventurous eater. I ate a BBQ baby Octopus and relished some calamari rings.

The King Crab prepared for a customer.

The end!

I had a memorable time at the market. It was an experience that I will be repeating regularly.

Sydney's got seafood!

  1. Hey SEG,

    Ah! This is sufficient compensation for the absence of yam and afang. The photos from the food court made me hungry. Lol

    For some reason, I'm reminded of the joke- "I am on a seafood diet, I see food and I eat it" :-)

    1. lol Nedoux. I still want Affang though and no plantains yet : (... I haven't gone out to look Thankfully, there's palmoil so I will be making fisherman soup.

  2. I want a little bit of everything!!!

    1. Hey November Child,

      You want the mummy Octopus too? haha.. Thank you for stopping by..

  3. I don't like the periwinkles tho, just too big for "obstruction" in soups tho. But impress with the market, how long does the fish stay on shelves (in ice)?

  4. Hi Lady,

    There I was hoping that you'd be keeping us entertained with your Aussie adventure, and now you've run away.

    I hope you'll put up a new post soon. :-)

    Have a lovely week!

    1. Nedoux! Thanks for keeping taps on me. I've repented!..
