Sole of Discretion
Dab were not previously highly rated as a commercial fish and were often disposed at sea when caught as unwanted bycatch by trawlers, or used as bait for crab and lobster pots. However, recent years have seen people catch on to how good dab are as a food fish, and many celebrity chefs have boosted the sales of dab by using this species in their recipes.
With declining stocks of popular traditional species such as cod and haddock organisations such as the Marine Conservation Society have also called for UK consumers to switch to eating species such as dab to take the pressure off over-fished species.
These flat-fish fillets will cook quickly and can even be quickly grilled with a little olive oil, salt and pepper, although you might want to Google a more exotic recipe!
