garfish or saury


The garfish and the saury are two very similar fish, both of which are good to eat. They are striking, beaked, marine fish up to 60 cm (2 ft) long, the garfish having a backbone which turns bright green, almost mauve, on cooking and a delicious flavour. They are found on most European coasts. Many names for these fish are confused.
