Gurnard have firm tasty flesh and are great value. Grey and yellow gurnard are good, but look out for red ones for the best flavour.
Good alternative fish for this dish are rainbow trout, mackerel and salmon. * Gurnard is a good fish for adding to soup. Use the head for making stock.
Tried this recipe - splendid. The dressing is yummy. In fact, had to keep going back to 'test' it. A wonder any got so far as the table. However, it was a cold day, so I served the dressing warm. Gurnard is a beautifully tasty fish. Don't be put off by its monster appearance. Also, if serving adults, don't fuss with taking it off the bone - save yourself work, just pour the dressing over and let them DIY. - 16 Jul 2012
