Main Fresh Fish Varieties

Sole  - white, delicate, moist flesh; low oil content; flesh turns whiter on cooking; sweet delicate flavour; cook simply by any method. Sole has roe attached to it, this can be eaten or removed before cooking with a sharp knife. The skin is left on the lower whiter fillet of the sole, this can be eaten or removed when cooked. The same applies to Brill and Flounder.

Tarakihi - medium texture; juicy flesh; low oil content; good delicate to medium flavour; suitable for all methods of cooking. In autumn they tend to feed on kelp and this can flavour the fish, giving it a stronger taste.

Gurnard  - medium to firm flesh which is pale pink but turns white on cooking; succulent flesh; low oil content; sweet mild to medium flavour; suitable for all cooking methods.
