The flathead fillets or flathead tails are relatively firm flesh fish. The flathead fish has a medium strength flavour and this fish fillet is high in oil. Catch dusky flatheads in sand bottomed environments such as Lakes Entrance. Try cooking flathead fillets grilled, baked, or on the BBQ. Serve flathead fish with chips and tartare sauce like the old days.
