Greenwood Fish Market Swordfish Carpaccio - soya vinaigrette, arugula, cherry tomatoes

With outlets at Quayside Isle and Tiong Bahru, Greenwood Fish Market is well known for their affordability and fresh catches.

At Quayside Isle, the family-run seafood restaurant has just revamped their dining space. Diners can now see the addition of a Japanese omakase bar, serving fresh nigiri sushi and other Japanese mains, as well as an oyster bar, where the chefs freshly shucks oysters upon order.

But, a good dish isn’t just dependent on the ingredients. Craftsmanship is the vital factor tjat transcend simple cuts of meat to a heavenly concoction.

Take the Swordfish Carpaccio ($19.95) for example. Thinly-sliced swordfish doused in a soya vinaigrette, topped with shredded arugula and ground black pepper. The vinaigrette and greens delicately balanced the high fat content, serrating the richness of the white-fleshed fish. Furthermore, precise knife skills rendered the marinate to penetrate the meat whilst retaining the swordfish’s innate buttery notes.

Popular orders include the Chef’s Platter ($289.96), a luxurious assortment of the most premium seafood, paired with a succulent USDA ribeye.

But, you don’t have to splurge. Affordable options such as pasta from $24.95 and fresh fillets at $32.95, are available on the menu.

We ordered the Seafood Marinara Bucatini ($28.95) to match the carpaccio’s vibrant flavours. The crimson sauce bore deep, hearty flavours tinged with a touch of spice.

On the other side of the spectrum, the Fisherman’s Stew ($49.95) had a creamier sauce that was perfumed with floral notes inherent to the exotic saffron spice. Generously loaded with mussels, prawns and scallops, this dish, creamy as it was, was surprisingly light to the palate.

Lastly, Barramundi ($32.95) that was paired with their house sauce, salad and lightly mashed potatoes. 

The portion smaller than what we expected, but at least the flesh was cooked to perfection. Moist, flaky, and tender, though the skin could’ve been crispier. It was a simple grilled fish with little to no marinate; just a few cracks of black pepper against the innate sweetness of the fish.

Keep an eye out for their daily promotions! We snagged some $2 oysters when we visited on Tuesday, which were decent for their price.
