Turbot, Food Illustration

I enjoyed drawing this fish with its toad-like skin and eyes.  Despite its strange one-sided appearance turbot is regarded as a delicacy.  It is fished in the North Atlantic and Mediterranean but is in limited supply so tends to be expensive.  For a tasty turbot recipe and advice on how to source this fish and cook it see Great British Chefs guide.
