Marc was up before the birds the other morning and off to Billingsgate Fish Market in the hunt for wild turbot. He returned with a plentiful catch of superb large fish. The average weight was 6.5 kilos. These were monsters! The wild turbot from this shopping spree was caught off the Cornish coast.
Then the real work began…..filleting and portioning. There is no wastage when preparing these fish. We sell the heads for soup making, any misshapes for pies or stir fries, and the we use the skeletons for our fish stock.
Marc expertly prepared each wild turbot. The Fish Society prides itself on quality and consistency; so when you order two servings they will be equal in shape as well as weight. This shape bit is a real challenge as you inevitaby get huge variations in shape.

These fillet steaks were then vacuum-packed, labelled and frozen.
