John Dory Fillets

Versatile, easy to cook fish and full of flavour

It's a weird-looking fish, the John Dory, but its distinctive flavour is mild and sweet, making it a versatile ingredient in lots of styles of cooking. Because this is a fish with a lot of skeleton, John Dory fillets save you the hassle of preparation. If you're a fan of sole or turbot, tender, white-fleshed John Dory is a great alternative. Look out for the black spot on the skin of the fish – legend has it this is a thumbprint left by Peter when he picked the fish out of the Sea of Galilee. Hence its alternative name 'St Peter's fish'.

John Dory is commonly found in fishing grounds around the UK and across the North Atlantic. Its unpromising looks meant for a long time it was most frequently discarded, but is now valued for its flavoursome white flesh. John Dory tends not to be the object of targeted fishing, rather surfacing as part of a mixed haul. All of Coombe Farm's fish comes from the Devon coast and is caught in accordance with sustainable seafood guidelines.

Product FAQs

  • We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday and you will be able to choose your preferred delivery day at checkout. The delivery charge is £5.

  • 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.

    We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, 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 meat would be much more challenging.

  • All of our meat is butchered in our in-house butchery by our small team. This means we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.

There are very few bones to be found in the flesh of the John Dory, so the fillets make a great alternative to cod or haddock if you fancy homemade fish and chips. As it's firmly fleshed, John Dory can be pan-fried or grilled, poached or barbecued without falling apart. Make a stunning summer supper by frying your fillets in butter with some finely diced chorizo until the fish is golden and sizzling. Serve with a refreshing salad of thinly slivered fennel and apple, speckled with capers.
