Popped down to Dimitri's corner shop to find this huge Orfos or grouper fish caught off Seskli this morning. Must be 10kg.

This is probably a Dusky Grouper (Epinephelus marginatus), or Merou and is the best known grouper of the Mediterranean Sea and North Africa coast. It is said to have the best taste of all Mediterranean fishes. 

Some meal tonight for somebody!
