 Tubby Turbot
Cooking this Turbot on the bone helps to add a bit more flavour to its flesh.
Simply wrap it up in foil and bake.
The flesh is slightly meatier than a sole, but still on the more delicate side.
For the Turbot
Handful of dill (chopped),
one lemon (half sliced),
splash white wine,
pinch chilli flakes,
salt and pepper

About 800g of Turbot
300g asparagus,
sherry vinegar, olive oil, knob of butter,
100g rocket and some crusty bread or new potatoes

Preheat the oven to 200c.
Lay out one sheet of foil on a baking sheet, add the slices of lemon and half the dill.
Place the Turbot on top, season with salt, pepper and chilli flakes, squeeze over the rest of the lemon juice and pour over a little wine.

Place another sheet of foil on top and seal tightly around the edges.
Place in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
Remove and let sit while you fry the asparagus in oil and butter with a splash of sherry vinegar.
Season with salt, pepper and chilli flakes and serve with the turbot along with some lemon wedges.
