John Dory is a saltwater fish, known for its white, meaty flesh which is delicate and sweet. It is an odd-looking fish with a large head that is almost half of its weight. So, it’s often best to buy fillets, rather than whole fish.
- The white, boneless, meaty flesh is firm and flavoursome and can be cooked in various ways: grill, stake, and sauté.
- It’s popular with chefs because it goes well with various ingredients and flavourings.
- For the best taste add some salt, olive oil and lemon juice to these fillets and then grill in the pan.
