John Dory – a superb fish according to Anthony J Sargeant



At first sight it might not be the prettiest of fish but it tastes wonderful according to Anthony J Sargeant. Sometimes called St Peter’s fish (the dark blob on the side supposedly representing the thumb print of St Peter) it is a serendipitous catch. This largish example (note the 30cm ruler at the top of the image) was bought at Birmingham Indoor Bullring market a couple of weeks ago. You need to take care when filleting since the spines are extremely sharp but with care the fillets come away very easily from the bone and there are no pin bones to extract. Simply pan fried the fillets are delicious.
