Wild Harbour Flat Fish
Fresh Wild Cornish Turbot
Turbot, the undisputed king of the oceans, is a fine-dining delicacy found on the menus of the world’s greatest restaurants. Its firm, white, luscious flesh offers a delightful, deep flavour that is similar to that of Dover sole. It’s a chef’s delight to work with: it’s delicious when cooked simply, but it can also withstand flavours that might overpower a more delicate fish.
FLAVOUR: Bold | TEXTURE: Medium | IN SEASON: Apr – Feb
Like Halibut, Turbot is a highly prized species, often regarded as the best of the flatfish with great flavour, firm and white flesh. It has an almost circular outline, studded with bony tubercles on its darks side. Colour varies from light to dark brown, spotted with green or black and white blind side. Turbot ranges from 400g to 10kg. The texture is similar to Halibut, but it has a slightly more pronounced ‘fishy’ taste, so requires little to enhance the flavour. It is also a chefs dream, retaining plenty of moisture during cooking, which means it doesn’t dry out easily.
Seasonality: Apr – Feb
