Brill

Brill

Description

Brill (Scopthalmus Rhombus) Brill is similar to Turbot, yet remains a very under-rated fish, despite being generally less expensive. It has an almost oval body, a grey-brown dark side with light and dark freckles (but no tubercles), and ranges from 400g to 4kg. As with Turbot, the skin colour changes according to where it is caught - lighter colours are found on sandy seabeds, with darker, richer colours found on muddier beds.
