John Dory belongs to the aptly-named ‘Zeus’ genus of fish species, which is in keeping with its other-worldly appearance of bizarre fins and spikes.

Also called the St Peter Fish it has a mottled yellow body and can grow up to 5kgs in weight.

A top-quality fish that should not be overcooked, John Dory boasts dense white flesh with lots of flavour and is well suited to Mediterranean recipes, many of which involve baking.

Try it slow-roasted with cherry tomatoes and wild garlic pesto for a real treat.


  • Premium source of low fat, lean protein
  • Landed by local trawlers in Newlyn and Plymouth
  • Available year round
  • Serve with wild garlic pesto

Please note that due to market conditions, sometimes dictated by the weather on rare occasions we may have to send you frozen fish, which could arrive partially-defrosted.
