How to cook gurnard

A relatively unfamiliar fish on the plate, with a strange appearance, but it can be a good eating experience. If you’re out fishing, don’t throw this one back in.

Treat the fillets as you would fillets of perch or pike-perch. Fry or grill them to produce an attractive, great-tasting surface.

Gurnard is good all year round.

The classic

Filleted and triple coated with grated cheese.
