Baked Turbot Fish
When we traveled to basque country in northern Spain a stop at Restaurante Elkano was high up on our list. The restaurant is known for their seafood, and in particular their grilled Turbot. At the restaurant they grill the Turbot with a unique fish basket that limits direct contact between the fish and grill grates. The result is a beautifully cooked fish infused with smoke, but still very moist and Turbot did not disappoint! We have not been able to find a similar basket, but wanted to create something similar. We ended up using the baking the Turbot in the oven. Turbot is flavorful so a stuck to simple seasonings such as salt, pepper, tarragon, and lemons, while also incorporating Txakolina wine, which is a specialty to the basque region. The resulting baked Turbot was delicious! Tarragon is a unique herb that pairs incredibly well with seafood, and in this dish infused the baked Turbot with immense flavor. It is also somewhat of a show stopped when you present this mighty fish to your family and friends. We hope you enjoy!
