John Dory is a quite beautiful fish that can be found from the Canaries to Scotland. It is also known as St Peter's Fish, with the distinctive black splodges on either side said to be the thumb and forefinger print of St Peter himself. It is a relatively abundant species in Cornwall, and as well as looking stunning, it is delicious too. It has quite a firm texture and sweet flavour.
These hand filleted portions are cut from large whole fish weighing approximately 1 kg, packed in pairs and blast frozen. Each pack contains 2 x 150g main course portions.
