Turbot is a large, sandy-coloured flatfish that, alongside Dover sole, lemon sole, halibut, plaice and brill, is one of the most readily consumed flatfish in the UK. It’s fished in the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea, and farmed in countries including France and Spain, but supplies are limited so it commands high prices, making it a luxurious option for restaurants and a treat for most households. Turbot is well liked for good reason: one fish provides four decent sized fillets; the flesh – which is stark white and firm with large flakes – holds together during cooking; and it has a subtle taste-of-the-sea flavour
