SCIENTIFIC NAME: Piaractus mesopotamicus
Pacu is a fish found exclusively in the Amazon whose diet consists of only plants. Grown through sustainable practices with minimal environmental impact, these fish have a well-balanced robust taste that is perfect for baking, frying, or grilling. Pacu Ribs have a tender meat that falls off the bone. This product is ideal for chefs who are looking for a unique and versatile seafood item.
The difference between fish cooked with and without its bones is enormous, something that’s plainly obvious in this preparation. Juicy, flavorful snow-white meat flakes effortlessly off tiny, needle-like rib bones and melts in your mouth.
These ribs don’t need to be brined & boiled followed by two hours in the oven and four hours on the grill.
The preparation is very simple, like every fish: salt, pepper, olive oil, then you grill, bake or sauté. Many grill it in the same way people grill baby back ribs. They look like baby back ribs, but they’re fish ribs. And they’re done in about ten minutes: five on the grill and five more in a hot oven to crisp up.
