How to prepare a baked turbot .

This weekend it was time to go up to Galicia and one of the things I like the most when I’m there is going to the market to buy fresh, high-quality products.

There I wanted to eat turbot in the oven , as I saw it exposed in the fish shop, it made my mouth water.

So today I bring you one of those  fish and seafood recipes that everyone likes, a very simple and fruitful idea where it is the oven that works for us, a  baked turbot with potatoes .

The best time for the turbot corresponds to the hot months. If you see in the market that the price of turbot varies a lot from one fishmonger to another, do not think that it is because the fish is more or less fresh.

The difference in prices, within which is a fairly expensive fish, is because some are farmed (the cheapest) and others are wild (the most expensive).

In Galicia the culture of turbot is highly developed and although it reaches the markets very fresh, there is a difference in the flavor and color of this wild fish compared to the farmed one.

I have chosen this recipe with turbot because it is very easy to prepare. Perfect to enjoy with friends or family in any self-respecting celebration. What have you not tried the turbot? Well, what are you waiting for, with this recipe you have no excuses.
