If you are looking for the perfect festive centrepiece, look no further than this stunning Whole Sharing Turbot with bacon, celeriac, peas and parsley by the incredible chef, Gill Meller. 

There isn’t anything more impressive than serving a whole fish at a Christmas dinner party, and a dish using our sharing Turbot is the ultimate in seafood luxury. The fabulous-looking Turbot is considered one of the finest fish in the seas, and the quality and firmness of the flesh means it will stand up to most types of cooking. 

And, the best thing about this recipe, everyone can help themselves to a serving of fish and a scoop of the vegetables straight from the tray. Simple!

Ingredients

Method

  • Heat the oven to 190℃ fan

    Scatter the celeriac cubes and bacon lardons out over the base of a large baking tray. Trickle over the olive oil and season well with salt and pepper. 

    Place the tray in the oven and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes, shaking the tray once or twice. 

    Remove the tray from the oven and scatter in the peas and garlic. Stir well. 

    Using a spatula or wooden spoon, make a turbot shaped clearing on the base of the tray. Lay the fish down amongst the celeriac, bacon and peas. Dot over the butter and season with salt and pepper. 

    Give everything a little shake and set it back in the oven for a further 15 - 20 minutes, until the fish is cooked through (you can test this by inserting the tip of a small paring knife into the thickest part of the fish and seeing if the flesh comes away from the bone).

    Remove the tray from the oven and allow the fish to rest for 4–5 minutes before scattering with the chopped parsley and taking to the table straight away. 

    Allow everyone to help themselves to a serving of fish and a scoop of the vegetables, straight from the tray.
