Winter seems to have finally arrived and it’s a good job we’re busy or we’d certainly feel that icy wind howling through our brilliantly designed open fronted fish shop!
After those few lean days at the start of the New Year we’re now seeing a great selection of fish from the South West and the quality is, as ever, fantastic
Plaice are currently ‘off the menu’ as they are in the middle of their spawning season, but the other ‘flatties’ are very much available. We’re seeing a lot of beautifully plump Brill, a firm favourite and great value this week at only £11.50kg. Turbot are also readily available, as are Dover Sole, Lemons and Megrim We’ll have lots of our usual prime Cornish Cod, Hake and Haddock but we’re also seeing quite a few lovely little red mullet as well as John Dory and a some delicious black bream – so plenty to chose from
Although not from our waters, there’s been a lot of publicity over the last few years around Skrei Cod. Its a very seasonal catch and is highly regarded by many top chefs. The season runs from January until April, when the mature cod return from the Barents Sea to their birthplace along the Norwegian coast to spawn. We’ve got some ‘first of the season’ fish this week and it’s proving to be very popular. The link below gives a little more information on this highly sought after delicacy
And to top it off we’ve got plenty of premium shellfish arriving – Palourdes, razors and artemis clams, fat Devon mussels, super lively Scottish langos and our large cock crabs are still full and fabulous
