Cooking with Brill
The brill fish is a luxury food with an amazing flavour. It shared a lot of similarities with its brother the Turbot. It also shares the same sweet taste, but a milder taste. Therefore, it is well paired with strong and punchy flavours such as capers, lemon and artichokes. The meat has a light colour with a firm texture. Good to pan-fry thanks to his firm texture. However, the best way of cooking Brill is on the bone as a whole fish. Reason being that the fillets can get rather small and the bones create a unique taste experience. If you decide to fillet the Brill fish, make sure you use the bones as the base for an amazing sauce. Due to its unique flavor, you can also be creative and cure the fish.
