About Turbot

The summer season along the coast of the United States brings an abundance of Turbot, flounder, sole and other flat fish. These fish all have oval shaped bodies, dark on top, light on bottom and odd looking eyes on the same (top) side of their heads. They are bottom dwellers, propelling themselves with a wave like motion along the sandy bottom of the sea. Flounder, sole and turbot are the smallest of this species, with a subtle, if not distinct taste difference between them. Grey Sole is the most delicate, suitable for broiling or very gentle pan sautéing. Flounder and Lemon Sole are larger and have a slightly different taste. All of these fish are boneless and remarkable mild. Being mild, they can stand up to strong sauces and flavors. The larger fillets can be fried in the traditional fish and chips manner.
