Block Island Fluke is a common regional white flatfish. It's firm and meaty, with a mild, slightly sweet taste.
Like other white fishes, it is very low in fat, has no carb, and is high in protein. It's a great source of vitamin B12 and selenium. It also contains good amounts of phosphorous and niacin.
- Use wine, sauce, other liquids or moist vegetables to keep thin fillets from drying out.
- Thicker fillets are great for broiling, served with lightly herbed butter.
- The firm flesh of fluke is good for rolling or stuffing.
- Avoid sauces and herbs that overpower its delicate taste.
This recipe is for brodetto, which is basically just a fancy word for fish stew. You can also use our scallops and local squash from one of our fellow farmers' market vendors for this one!
