A 100kg whopper of a Halibut flatfish caught off the coast of Donegal has gone on sale in a fishmarket in Co Cork.
The fish, enough to feed 160 people, has landed at the English Market.
The fish is currently on show at K O’Connell Fishmongers where fishmonger Pat O’Connell said the rare catch will supply 160 people with a 250gram portion of high-quality and tasty fish fillet.
“It is rare enough to catch a halibut that size in Ireland, you would normally get that off the coast of Canada,” Pat told echolive.ie
“It is a real thick fish that has a lot of oils, so it is very healthy and tasty.
“It is very good for you and lovely flavoured.”
Mr O’Connell said the English Market has always stood out for fresh, quality produce and, as it was the only place trading for most of the lockdown, business has been good.Tags:
