Firm white flesh with an elegant texture and a slight taste of seaweed. Not always on the market, but when it is we buy it.

Taste description

John Dory’s aroma is very light with subtle hints of fresh seaweed and boiled potatoes. Its flavour is marginally more robust, featuring milky notes of plain omelette, most of which it owes to its thin, crunchy and easy-to-eat skin.The flesh is noticeably bland, but compensates with a very elegant texture – firm and smooth with discrete flakes and a pleasant, low-key stickiness.
