Actually a large flatfish, turbot is lean and white-fleshed with a delicate flavour. It is also known as the Greenland halibut, and is sometimes called the Greenland turbot or black halibut. It’s good to eat and give to your children to help them discover fish and add variety to their diet. That said, darker-fleshed fish such as salmon, trout, mackerel, tuna and herring have higher omega-3 content. I suggest you add a trout like rainbow trout or salmon to your family’s dinner menu. These fish are generally well-liked and are really delicious with a drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice.
I’m the mother of two children, including a nine-month-old baby. The books I have read never talk about turbot. It’s a fish I personally prefer. I would like to know if it is a good choice for my son. Or what is the most recommended option?
