Gurnard Fillets

A tasty, firmly fleshed, versatile fish that's set to become a family favourite

With its red or grey skin, large, armoured head and ferocious spines, gurnard is a distinctive, but not exactly pretty fish. It lives and feeds on the seabed on a diet of crabs and shrimps and has traditionally been discarded by fishermen or used as bait in lobster pots. But luckily, we're coming to our senses now and starting to enjoy its lean, white flesh as a sustainable alternative to over-fished species like cod, the succulant meaty flesh holds together well when cooking and is delicious in a home-made fish pie. The bony structure of gurnard does make it a little bit difficult to deal with, so at Coombe Farm Organic we sell it ready filleted, meaning you're spared the fiddly bit and left free to get on with cooking this flavoursome fish.

At Coombe Farm Organic we only stock sustainable fish. Our gurnard fillets are mainly caught off the coast of Cornwall, using sustainable fishing techniques - assuring seafood products that have come from well-managed and sustainable fisheries, ensuring healthy oceans and safeguarding seafood supplies for the future.

  • Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.

    Fisheries catch fillet and freeze all sustainable and organic fish before it arrives to us by blast freezing. It’s done at the point of the fishmongers filleting the fish, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.

    It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh fish would be much more challenging.

With really super flavour, the gurnard is a versatile choice, excellent in hearty staples like fish and chips or homemade family favourites like fish fingers. Its meaty and firm-but-flaky texture works well in fish stews and fiery seafood curries. Try it in a traditional Provençal bouillabaisse, alongside monkfish, red mullet and John Dory. Make a rich, well-reduced sauce with onions, celery, fish stock and plenty of chopped and puréed tomatoes. Flavour it with saffron, star anise and a good splash of Pernod, before poaching the fish in it. Serve garnished with garlicky croutons and a crisp Sauvignon Blanc.
