The red gurnard is instantly recognizable by its striking appearance, which includes large pectoral fins with bright red markings, hence its name. The rest of its body is usually a mottled brown or reddish colour, allowing it to blend in with the sandy and rocky seabeds where it resides.

The red gurnard feeds on bottom-dwelling invertebrates such as crustaceans, using its unique arm-like pectoral fins to stir up the substrate and uncover prey. This diet gives it a characteristic, rich earthy flavour and firm flesh.

While not as well-known as some other fish species, the red gurnard has gained popularity among chefs and seafood enthusiasts, thanks to its distinctive taste and versatility in the kitchen. It can be prepared in various ways, including grilling, frying, and poaching, and its unique flavour profile allows it to pair wonderfully with a range of ingredients and cooking methods.
