Turbot - bad?

MMRuth | Sep 6, 2005 08:39 PM

My husband brought home Turbot tonight and I cooked it - meuniere with a butter, thin lemon slice, parsley pan sauce. I thought it was terrible. I expected it to taste like sole or plaice. Instead, it was mealy and fell apart in my mouth. After a bit or two I stopped eating it - mostly because of the texture.

Is this how turbot is or could this have been bad? It was from a reputable shop, though I did get a bit more whiff of the fish as I opened it.

Any thoughts? Thanks!
