Meet Tu at Norton Seafoods
Blogged by: Norton Plaza 08 Sep 2016 View comments
15 years ago Tu’s family started a seafood business at Paddy’s Markets.  9 months ago, Tu and his brother  followed in the family footsteps and relocated to Norton Plaza taking over Norton Seafoods.

Last week I sat down with Tu to chat about the new location.  As a lifelong vegetarian raised by a lifelong vegetarian, I knew nothing about seafood and let me tell you, I was intrigued!  I begin firing off questions and Tu keeps up!   He tells me that to ensure they have the highest quality of fresh fish, they are down at the Sydney fish market at 5AM daily.  He says that the fish markets are hectic – people running to get the best fish. I imagine fish mongers as traders at Wallstreet, the fish placing money and plastic looking apron replacing three piece suits.

The day I visit, there is a wide selection of seafood – salmon caviar, oysters, flathead, prawns, fillet, crabs, calamari and even a seaweed salad for me!  You have the option to buy and take it home, have them cook it or even give advice on how to cook it at home – they are true experts!

Tu’s favourite seafood is barramundi and salmon but everything looks pretty fresh to me!

To check out their wide selection and weekly specials, stop by Norton Seafood at Norton Plaza.
