How to fillet a flatfish (Megrim)

In this short film Rob Phillips of Pengelly's famous fishmongers Looe shows us how to fillet a flatfish, in this case a lovely big Megrim or Cornish sole. Megrim is abundant off the Cornish coast and it is an under-appreciated species that we recommend people try. Stocks of megrim are healthy and the fishery is well managed making this species recommended by Cornwall Good Seafood Guide. for more information please visit our Megrim page
