The turbot is a large left-eyed flatfish found primarily close to shore in sandy shallow waters throughout the Mediterranean, the Baltic Sea, the Black Sea and the North Atlantic. The Turbot has an asymmetrical disk-shaped body, and has been known to grow up to 100 cm (39 in) long and 25 kg (55 lb) in weight.

Turbot is highly prized as a food fish for its delicate flavour, and is also known as breet, britt or butt. It is a valuable commercial species, acquired through aquaculture and trawling. Turbot has a bright white flesh that retains its appearance when cooked. Like all flatfish, turbot yields four fillets with meatier topside portions that may be baked, poached or pan-fried.

  • 4 x 175g/6oz portions of Turbot fillet, skinned
  • Salt and Ground Black Pepper, plus Cornish Sea Salt
  • Flour for Dusting
  • Large knob of butter

For the Salad
  • 2 small Avocados
  • 2 tbsp Lime Juice
  • 2 small Mangos
  • 2 Red Chillies - de-seeded and finely diced
  • 1 small Red Onion - Or 2-3 Spring Onions, finely chopped
  • 1 heaped tbsp chopped Coriander Leaves
  • 4 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil 

How to Cook:

To make the salad, halve the avocados, remove the stone and peel away the skin.

Roughly cut the flesh into 1cm (0.5in) dice, and place in a large bowl.

Squeeze the juice of 1 lime over the avocados, and stir gently.

Peel the mangoes and dice the flesh off the stone.

Place all of the salad ingredients in a bowl, stir them together and season with sea salt before adding the avocados and mangoes.

Season the fish with salt, lightly dusting the filleted side with flour. Melt the butter in a frying pan. Once bubbling, place the fillets in the pan floured side down. Season skin with pepper.

Fry gently for 4-5 minutes, then turn fish in the pan and remove from heat. Leave to stand for a further 2-3 minutes.

Place salad on a plate and serve fish alongside.

Drizzle any remaining butter in the pan over the fish. Serve.
