Here is what you will need to make Jamie Oliver’s Roasted Flatfish:

  • Whole Turbot gutted, gills removed. (Flat Fish)
  • Fennel seeds: – you can also choose roasted fennel seeds if that’s what you have.
  • Scallions: use shallots if you don’t have scallions.

Instructions:

  1. On the day, prep the fish an hour before you want to cook it. Wipe it with a paper towel, place it on a large oiled pan, and sprinkle with fennel seeds, then trim, finely slice, and scatter over the scallions. Use a vegetable peeler to slice over the carrots lengthways, then very finely slice and lay over 1 lemon. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, squeeze over the juice of the second lemon, and season with sea salt and black pepper. Preheat the oven to 325 F. Cook for 45 to minutes (adjusting the time if your fish is smaller or leger than specified.) You’ll know it’s beautifully cooked with the flesh eases away from the bone. Remove from the oven, dot over the butter, cover, then rest for 20 minutes to be served warm, basting occasionally with the pan liquor.
  2. To Serve, use a fork and knife to gently cut and peel back the skin from the top side of the fish. All the milky juices that pour out will add to your natural sauce. Ease random chunks of fish away from the bones, placing them on a large platter and spooning over the scallions, carrots, and lemon. Lift up and remove the spices and bones, then gently scoop out all the fish from the underside. Angle the pan so all the juices are in one cover, season to perfection, tasting and tweaking, then spoon over the platter. Serve with a grain dish, fragrant olive sauce, and a simple salad.

When buying flatfish, look for firm fish with bright, clear eyes. The flesh should also be free of any discoloration.

Here are some tips for cleaning flatfish:

  • Rinse the flatfish under cold water.
  • Remove the scales with a fish scaler.
  • Cut off the fins and tail.
  • Make a shallow incision along the backbone of the fish.
  • Carefully remove the fillets from the bone.
  • Rinse the fillets again under cold water.
  • Pat the fillets dry with paper towels.

  • If you are using thick flatfish fillets, you may need to increase the cooking time to 25-30 minutes.
  • To test if the fish is cooked through, insert a fork into the thickest part of the fillet. The fish is cooked through when the flesh flakes easily with a fork.
