Turbot roasted on the bone with new potatoes and wild garlic pesto with greens was the first main course served at this year’s G7 summit, and now Aldi shoppers can dine like world leaders as it becomes the UK’s first supermarket to stock the premium catch.
Commonly seen on the menus of Michelin-starred restaurants, Aldi’s brand-new British Specially Selected Turbot Fillets (£24.95/kg)* are a whopping 50% cheaper than restaurant (and high end fishmongers) Wright Brothers (£55 for 1-1.5kg) . What’s more, having featured on Rick Stein’s debut menu at this year’s Ascot Royal Enclosure, it’s a so- fish-ticated catch fit for a Queen but without a royal price tag.
Whilst there are plenty more fish in the sea, Aldi predicts that Turbot will be the catch of the day with its customers who can impress guests and take inspiration from recipes from top Turbot-loving Chefs including Rick Stein, Mark Hix, James Martin and Adam Handling without breaking the bank.
* Average pack price is £3.99
Ahead of British Food Fortnight (18th September – 3rd October), new research from supermarket Aldi reveals that British classics, such as Bangers and Mash, Toad in the Hole and Scotch Eggs, are at risk of being confined to history books - with many millennials not knowing what they are and even doubting they exist.
