With its white, firm and fragrant flesh, the brill (Scophthalmus rhombus) is very sought-after by gourmets. The brill’s flesh is nearly just as good as the prestigious turbot.
Like all flatfish, the brill can be grilled, fried, braised or poached in court-bouillon. But, the ideal is to prepare the brill in the oven. It may be accompanied by various sauces, and its flesh goes perfectly with a puree of sorrel.
