6
Flat fish swim on the ocean bed with its white side facing down, so the white side is always flat.
7
The darker side, on the other hand, is nice and plump.
So when you buy a fillet of any flat fish .........
8
Buy a fillet of the darker side - it's thick and delicious. At the supermarket, you can buy both the white and darker side. It's worth comparing the taste and enjoyment of each.

Tips & Note

As a fishmonger, I often hear customers ask for a 'white fillet' - probably because the darker fillet doesn't look that attractive. When someone does ask for a darker fillet, I instantly think they used to be a fisherman!
