Pre-Ordered Fresh Air-flown Line Caught Turbot from Brittany

A White Tablecloth Prize

The tur­bot is an almost cir­cu­lar fish, stud­ded with bumpy tuber­cles. It is known for its snow-white meat and sub­tle ocean fla­vors, and the wild-caught type com­mands a high price all over Europe.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Some­times called the prince of the seas, tur­bot is well liked for its large filet cuts — four large serv­ings per fish — with a pale white flesh that comes apart in large, firm flakes when cooked. It is a meaty fish, the back fil­lets more so than the bel­ly area. It has a sub­tle salty taste, unlike most salt­wa­ter fish, just enough that it requires lit­tle to enhance its fla­vor. It is a delight for chefs, as it retains most of its mois­ture dur­ing cooking.

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

Tur­bot is a fish that can be pre­pared whole, in steaks, or fil­let­ed. It is best cooked whole, so that the bones can impart added fla­vor to the dish­es. This fish can be baked, roast­ed, pan-fried, braised, or placed on a spit and char­broiled. When poached or grilled, it is gen­er­al­ly paired with lob­ster and sauced with hol­landaise or mous­se­line. Tur­bot steaks are deli­cious when cooked in browned but­ter and paired with cĂ©pes or capers.

Like most oth­er fish, tur­bot pairs well with white wines, par­tic­u­lar­ly a Bur­gundy or very aro­mat­ic RhĂ´ne choice like Condrieu. 

A LUX­U­RY FISH — AND PRIEST­LY FAVORITE

Most known as a fine din­ing fish or a spe­cial occa­sion selec­tion at home, the tur­bot has been pop­u­lar­ized in such clas­sics as Tolstoy’s Anna Karen­i­na. In the 17th cen­tu­ry, chefs even cre­at­ed a spe­cial machine called the tur­botière, made espe­cial­ly to pre­vent dam­age from being done to the fish dur­ing poach­ing. How­ev­er, this prince­ly fish is also known in Catholic cir­cles as the ​“King of Lent”, because its weight and size make it ide­al for meals dur­ing the sea­son when meat con­sump­tion is frowned upon.
