Recipes & Cooking
We offer lovely large fish and as such the fillets from them are lovely and thick. As Turbot is such a firm, meaty fish it is extremely versatile and lends itself well to pan-frying, grilling, poaching and steaming. It works well with light sauces, so the Turbot remains the star of the show, like a veloute or hollandaise.

Health & Nutrition
Turbot is a low fat source of protein and a good source of Omega 3 oils. It is also loaded with Vitamins including B3 and B12, and minerals including magnesium, selenium and phosphorus. These assist in the functions of immune system, maintenance of strong teeth, bones and supports metabolism.
Sustainability & Provenance
More information is required about this highly valued fish before we can be certain that current levels are sustainable, which is why it is not currently in the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide. We only recommend it as an occasional treat, and a great alternative that definitely is sustainable, is Brill. Read more
The Best Lobsters
As ever, everything arrived OK thanks and we’ve just eaten the lobsters (a Valentine’s treat for my wife – oh all right, for me too!). The substitution of Turbot in place of the Brill I ordered, which was unavailable, was fine and much appreciated. Thanks for that. Finally, as I’ve said before, your new packaging is a huge improvement and makes the whole process much easier at the receiving end. I keep mentioning FFT to family and friends so I hope you get some more sales from them.
