There's a fish in Japanese waters that is occasionally translated as turbot. But it's not (true turbot is only found in European waters). I haven't eaten the Japanese pretender but it looks more like a flounder to me. So it has no tradition in sushi. But if they did have turbot in Japan, it would certainly be revered. And it is certainly gorgeous when served as sashimi. On this page we are selling the turbot's engawa or fin muscle, a firm and very distinctive piece of meat: chewy and rich. Skinned. We also have turbot body meat, which is here.
Scientific name - Scopthalmus maximus
