MySeafoodMart.com - Malaysia's First Online Seafood Store!

I love the convenience of online food shopping, whereby I can just sit in front of the computer, click a few buttons and get my groceries delivered to my doorstep. This is something I miss from my days in the UK.

The online food shopping trend is slowly catching up in Malaysia, and I am glad to have discovered MySeafoodMart.com recently. MySeafoodMart.com prides itself as a supplier of fresh seafood, so when I was asked if I would like to try their delivery service, of course I said YES!

Wonderful seafood dishes, made with delivery from MySeafoodMart



First, a little info on MySeafoodMart.com - it is the first & only full-fledged Online Seafood Store that sells fresh seafood online & provides delivery to most parts of Klang Valley. With over 20 years of experience in the fishing industry, they supply seafood to fish sellers & restaurants (such as Sitka, Porto Romano and The Kitchen Table) all over Klang Valley. Now, they have started an online store to cater to households in Klang Valley directly. Wonderful news for us all!



How to Order: Visit their website at www.myseafoodmart.com and under Categories, you can browse what fresh fish, fresh shellfish and frozen shellfish they have available. Select what you would like to purchase, add to cart and checkout. Then, simply enter your delivery address and pay via Paypal, bank transfer or cash on delivery. There is a minimum order of RM100 (RM15 delivery charge) and delivery is free for orders above RM200. At the moment, they deliver to most areas of Klang Valley, including Subang, Shah Alam, Subang Jaya, PJ, Damansara, KL City, and Ampang.


Let's talk seafood! All seafood sold on their website are from their daily catch and all orders are delivered directly from Pulau Ketam to your doorstep. Deliveries are made every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.


My QC manager approves :)


You can choose from a variety of fresh fish such as dragon tiger grouper (龙虎班), threadfin/senangin (ma yau上午), giant/estuary grouper (long dan 大龙且), a few types of pomfret, red snapper (红鱼) and seabass/siakap (食角). They also have fresh shellfish such as cuttlefish, flower crab, prawns and squid.

Red prawns "Hong Ha"


Our order arrived in a styrofoam box, filled with ice to maintain the freshness of the seafood. Inside, there was a 1.15kg dragon tiger grouper also known as loong fu pan (RM60/kg), 1kg of red big prawn XL size (Hong Ha 红大虾 - RM56/kg), as well as frozen slipper lobster meat (RM39 per 450g pack) and mantis prawn meat (RM22.90 per 1kg pack).

We originally had plans to make a Vietnamese dish that evening, but the seafood delivered to us was so fresh, we felt the urge to cook it that evening itself. The dragon tiger grouper comes from their own farm in Pulau Ketam and the guts/scales are removed before it arrives to the customer. We simply oven-baked the fish with some lemongrass, dill and fennel - the fish meat is so sweet, meaty and taut, we enjoyed it very much! See recipe here.




We also cooked half of the prawns, with some garlic butter and curry leaves. You can find the recipe here. It's certainly pleasurable to be able to enjoy such large, fresh prawns - so succulent and "bouncy" 弹性 - finger licking good! The other half of the prawns went onto the BBQ that we had a couple of days later. The price is very reasonable for the size and freshness of these prawns.

Prawns on the BBQ - delish!



The slipper lobsters are caught from the waters of Mersing, and the meat is removed from its shell and frozen to maintain freshness. I certainly enjoyed having it with my salad (see my post from yesterday for recipe), simply pan-roasted with some butter, shallots, garlic and thyme.

I have yet to try the premium frozen mantis prawns 虾姑 yet but am quite confident that it will meet my satisfaction as well.



Thanks to MySeafoodMart.com for providing us with the fresh seafood. I would highly recommend this website to any seafood fans.

  7. Not cheap but as long as everything's fresh and available - so hard to get fresh and decently big prawns at times...and fish too. Very convenient.
