Turbot (Whole Fish)

Turbot (Whole Fish)

From £45.00 Per Fish £30.00 per KG

Turbot really is the 'King' of the sea, with a price tag to match this status. It has a wonderful firm texture and meaty taste, making it one of the darlings with all of the top Chefs. They are the largest of the South West flatfish and are fast growing, big and strong predators! It is up there with lobster and Dover Sole and is simply sensational. We offer whole fish that weigh approximately 1.5 kg, and we can send this whole or trimmed and tranched. One fish will work as a starter for 8 - 10 or a main course for 4 - 5, and is an exceptional dinner party special!

  • Landed daily to markets including Plymouth, Looe and Newlyn
  • Little is known about Turbot stocks and as such we recommend it is only eaten as an occassional treat
  • Good source of Omega 3 oils and packed with vitamins and minerals
  • Roasted whole Turbot is a dinner-party centre piece for Kings and Queens (even if it is just for the day)

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

Customer reviews

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.
