Varying from red to pale grey but tasting the same regardless of colour, fresh gurnard has a robust, firm texture and weighs in at anywhere from 500g to 600g. This fish is perhaps the most under-rated species landed by our fishermen. Many years ago gurnard was used as crab and lobster bait, now we fully understand its value both as a tasty fish and firm white versatile fish. Pan-frying is the ideal cooking method, flavoured with Mediterranean flavours, it's definitely worth a try!

All local trawlers land gurnard as part of their mixed fish catches - it was once used as crab bait! Now gurnard is rightly revered as a prime quality fine fish. Remember, not all gurnard is red, many are pale red or grey. Skin colour does not affect the flavour in any way!
