John Dory or the 'St. Peter fish' as it is also known has a mottled green skin and is highly valued for its mild sweet flavour and succulent texture. This fish has a heavy bone structure; please be aware its yield is relatively low but the flavour is definitely high! If only the small grade of fish are on the markets that morning we will put in 2,3 or 4 small fish to make up the 1 portion.
