Yellowbelly flounder are the stars of New Zealand’s flatfish crop. They distinguish themselves from sole, brill, turbot and regular flounder species both by appearance and taste. From above they appear a dappled green/brown but once turned they have a golden butter-colored underside (a color which is a valid reflection of their smooth, rich taste).
