Turbot

Loved for its flavour – not for its looks!

Almost circular in shape, with mottled brown skin, a pallid underbelly and a downturned mouth, the turbot is a flatfish that feeds on sandy or muddy seabeds. It has traditionally been seen as a luxurious fish. That's probably because of its softly textured, deliciously delicate white flesh. To make the most of its oustanding flavour, avoid going fancy with this fish – rather let it speak for itself by cooking it gently and serving it with understated accompaniments that won't overpower it.

As you know, we're all about organic here at Coombe Farm Organic. We care about how our food is raised and where it comes from, and that applies to our fish as well as our meat. We're lucky enough to be located a short hop from the coast, where the cold, fertile waters of the English Channel meet the lush green fields of Devon and Dorset. Lyme Bay is renowned for being home to a wide diversity of species and the waters all around the southwest coast produce top-quality seafood. We work with fishing partners who land their catch into Brixham. This small but bustling harbour can efficiently land, auction and distribute fish in no time at all. That means we get our fish into the freezer as quickly as possible, locking in freshness.

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 £3.95.

  • 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.

    You will find any product ingredients on the relevant product pages.

Turbot's meaty texture means it's a fish that can be cooked in most ways, from poaching to baking, steaming to barbecuing. It has a really special flavour, so avoid using it as a vehicle for more dominant ingredients. For a simple but impressive supper, roast your turbot fillets on a bed of fennel with slices of lemon, sprigs of tarragon and a splash of white wine. Or quickly pan fry it until it's turning golden on the outside but just opaque inside. Serve with buttered brown shrimp, a crisp green salad and nutty brown bread.
