Dont know much about 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.
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.
A good array of locally caught wet fish and a superb take away with outside covered seating. Was recommended to us as the best fish and chips in town and we would agree.
My wife and I ordered grilled swordfish. It took some time until it was done, but then we each got a nicely grilled piece about the size of a T Bone steak. Our daughter liked the salad. It might not be the place for a formal dinner but if you are hungry for fish at a reasonable price it’s certainly worth going there.
This was fish and chips done to perfection. Thick crunchy fish cocktails, calamari rings, prawn cutlets and chips were all fantastic.
