Whats the story John Dory?
John Dory is a salt water fish, known for its white, meaty flesh which is delicate and sweet. The meat might be delicious, but John Dory isn’t the prettiest. John Dory is a versatile fish – it can be pan-fried, grilled, baked whole, steamed, poached or roasted. As with all fish, it’s important not to overcook John Dory. Also, it’s often wise to keep the skin on to protect the delicate flesh during cooking. Its skin is greenish to silver and the prominent dark spot on the side and long, wispy dorsal fin distinguishes it from all other dories. Skin appears smooth and scaleless, though it does have tiny, fine scales. One of Australia’s most highly prized finfish.
It is available wild caught, it is a bottom-dwelling marine fish found mainly on the continental shelf from estuaries to about 200m found in temperate waters from southern Queensland to WA, including Tasmania and caught by trawling and Danish seines mainly off the south-eastern coast of NSW and Victoria, with some off Tasmania, SA and WA as far north as Port Hedland.
Best fish & chips we ever had. The Dinner Pack was just huge for two, but you just can’t stop eating! Lovely and crisp chips, and the fish was exceptional. Only draw-back was the very small decking outside, which was too crowded and hard to find a vacant table. Unless of course you take your fish & chips and eat them somewhere else. Everything was as fresh as seafood should be. Straight off the boat! Next time we’ll try the mixed seafood.
Best cooked fish and chips I have had in so long and I live in a fishing town. Fish was fresh and cooked to perfection.
Service at the Co-Op is friendly and helpful and the fish is MAGNIFICENTLY FRESH. If you have a special occasion coming up, the cooked lobster is absolutely delicious.
This was fish and chips done to perfection. Thick crunchy fish cocktails, calamari rings, prawn cutlets and chips were all fantastic.
