Blue grenadier fish, also known as hoki, blue hake or whiptail fish, is a saltwater fish commonly caught in New Zealand. The meat is white in color, and is fairly soft when compared with other, more common fish like salmon and tuna. Blue grenadier has a light, clean taste, and can easily be paired with a variety of sauces or garnishes based on personal taste.
