American Dab (Hippoglossoides platessoides)

A flat fish belonging to the Pleuronectidae family, so related to Plaice, Flounders and Dabs.

They grow to about 70cm in the Western Atlantic, where they are popular; the Eastern Atlantic variety is much smaller - about 30cm being the norm. so although abundant around Scotland, Iceland and Norway, is not in great demand.

If you find one on your fishmonger"s slab, they are good pan-fried with a little butter.
