Black Pomfrets are quite different from Chinese Silver and Silver pomfrets. For steaming, the Teochews prefer the former but a fresh black pomfret can taste very nice when steamed as well. The flesh is not as fine as the Silver Pomfret and a good Black Pomfret from the 泗水(Surabaya) region can have a very distinct fragrance. My preference for cooking this fish is to fry the fish first and then cooking it in a black bean and chilli sauce. This fish is usually wild caught.
