Also known as King Mackerel, a true Kingfish is the species Scomberomorus cavalla.
Various other fish such as King Carangue, Yellowtail Kingfish and Pompano are sometimes mistaken for Kingfish but, although related, are a Jack orTrevally. Once identified though, Kingfish is a great fish! It has rich, oily, firm flesh, and like Mackerel, works better with sharp flavours.
