Also called the St Peter Fish it has a mottled yellow body and can grow up to 5kgs in weight. A top quality fish that's not to be over-cooked John Dory boasts a dense white flesh with lots of flavour and are well suited to Mediterranean recipes, many of which involve being baked. Try it slow roasted with cherry tomatoes and wild garlic pesto for a real treat.
