Recipes & Cooking
Gurnard fillets are quite firm and work really well pan-fried skin-side down or grilled skin-side up. It works well served very simply with a brown shrimp butter and seasonal vegetables. Equally it can be served on top of a mediterranean stew or bouillabaisse - if you do serve like this, we recommend you cook the fillets separately and crisp the skin up, as it is delicious.
Health & Nutrition
Gurnard is high in protein and low in fat, and has many of the health benefits of white fish like. It is an excellent source of Omega 3 oils, rich in minerals like potassium and calcium, and contains plenty of vitamins.

Gurnard - who knew?!
We are looking forward to our gurnard tonight! It's a fish I'd never tried until I started buying from you and it is now one of my wife's and my favourites. By the way, I really enjoyed Paul's personal video email about the new service. More fish, more meals and better value without all the veg etc. And less weight to transport around the country. A big thumbs up from us.
