MenuTurbot does have a more mild flavor – so keep preparations simple and don’t overwhelm this tasty fish.

For Your Waitstaff

Wait StaffLet your guests know that Turbot is a very mild flavored seafood option, and suggest pairing it with a wine that won’t overwhelm it. Also, it really is pronounced “tur – buht”, not  “tur – bo”!


For Your Retail Display

Retail If you have a customer in search of something mild (like Tilapia, or Flounder) Farmed Turbot is a great substitute – especially if they are trying to “wow” some guests!
