'Plate Sized' Farmed Turbot in Five Restaurants at the 1976 Argyle Seafood Festival

M. Urch

Farmed turbot weighing approximately 500-550g each were served at five restaurants, during the Argyll Seafood Festival in early July 1976, and were also displayed wet at the gala at Crinan. The trial confirmed that this is the optimum size for serving farmed turbot as a plat-size single portion, as they were well received by the management of the restaurants, the chefs and customers alike. Larger fish, about 900g in weight and suitable for serving two portions, were not so well received, as they were not so easy to handle in the kitchen.
