When I was in Sri Lanka on a vacation, on one evening they had some roasted fish cubes that was as hard as chicken meat. I am trying to find out what that might have been.
Possibly frog or rat.



As far as a "firm" fish, deep sea is probably best. Fresh tuna is like beef in texture, really dense.

Then of course there's the old fashioned favorite, flake. Or shark, as it's more commonly known.

Makes the BEST fish and chips because it is meaty and flavorsome.

Meh, at a guess....could be wrong....I'd say you were eating some sort of shark.

I have had cubes of Mahi-Mahi in fish tacos - it was quite firm.

Shark steak, tuna steak. This is stretching things a little, but smoked salmon is a bit chewy. Salmon jerky is a real thing, also chewy.
