Brill - one of the finest flat fish in the sea - is a must for a dinner party! It could be confused for turbot but is actually from the sole family. Light and firm in texture and with a sweet, delicate flavour, brill is a favourite with many home-cooks and professional chefs alike. Brill does beautifully simply pan fried in butter and served alongside something punchy - think capers or tapenade. However, it also carries stronger flavours well when cooked in a broth or en papillote.
Fresh fish is best eaten straight away, or within 3 days. Store in your refrigerator and pack with ice if possible. To freeze; place the fish straight in the freezer upon delivery and aim to consume within 3 months. TIP: Write the date on the packaging before freezing. Do not re-freeze your fish after defrosting.
