Jane Grigson spoke for many when she said John Dory was ‘one of the most desirable creatures in the sea, to be compared with sole and turbot’. Rick Stein’s Seafood Odyssey (p106) includes a scrumptious Italian fish stew which, by including gurnard, squid and cod, makes JD go a long way. But it has to be said, it’s even better by itself. Packs normally contain a single BONELESS fillet from a large or very large fish. Our John Dory tends to come from the South West of the UK, mainly Cornwall. Can you guess what the latin name for John Dory is? … Zeus Faber! Pretty cool right, named after the almight. This species is wide spread and appreciated all around the globe, you can even find this species of John Dory in New Zealand.
