Brill is similar to Turbot, and cheaper. It has an almost oval body, a grey-brown dark side with light and dark freckles and ranges from 400g to 4kg. Like Turbot, skin colour varies according to where the fish is caught. Lighter brill are found on sandy sea beds, with darker, richer colours found on muddier beds.
Brill has a sweeter flavour than Turbot, smaller Brill are appreciated on the bone while larger fish make great steaks.
All of our Brill comes direct from the English Channel, using boats local to Hythe bay whenever possible.
