‘Rubber-lip grunt’ taking over menus in southern Spain

A BIZARRELY-NAMED fish is taking restaurants on the south coast of Spain by storm.

The ‘Rubber-lip grunt’ – despite its unattractive name – is a relatively rare bottom feeder, that makes its home in the Mediterranean waters of Spain and Portugal.

Appearing as ‘Borriquete’ on Spanish menus, it is growing in popularity and being seen increasingly on menus, particularly in Cadiz and on the Costa del Sol.

It is said to be particularly good grilled straight off the barbecue.
