Atlantic Dory and Weekend Specialties 8.6.15 August 05 2015 Posted in

John Dories are known around Europe as Saint Peter’s fish because of the prominent gold- ringed black spot on the fish’s flesh that is the supposed mark of Saint Peter.  They’re well sought after for their mild flavor, rich texture and fine flake. The American counterpart (American or Atlantic Dory) are just as delicious by not as well-known over here because they are not fished commercially.  This Thursday, we’ll have a small run of Atlantic Dories coming in from Massachusetts that were caught as by-catch from trawlers.  Come see what all the fuss is about.  If you’re looking for inspiration, we recommend pan-searing the fillets with a classic French à la Meunière sauce.  Click here for the recipe.
