Want to know when we're stocked up?

Simply sumptuous, our plump, sweet sustainable hand-dived scallops, served with a wild garlic butter. This leaf has a sweet, garlicy flavour and grows abundantly in Cornwall at this time of year. The scallops have been carefully harvested by divers during breaks in the weather, shucked cleaned and frozen in packs of 4 meats. This method ensures that there is no damage to the seabed and that there is no by-catch - a serious problem with commercial scallop dredging, which is generally regarded as on of the most destructive fishing methods of all. Diving for the scallops, although much more time-consuming and expensive, allows the fishermen to select only mature scallops leaving immature specimens to grow undisturbed. The natural flavour and sweetness of our Cornish pot-caught lobster shines through with just light cooking, and is enhanced with the rich, aromatic tarragon mayonnaise, while the pickled fennel provides an interestingly tart contrast. Whether you decide to pop your lobster under the grill or perhaps cook it on the barbecue, we’ve taken the hard work out of the cooking by doing most of the prep for you, so that you can concentrate on relaxing and enjoying the glorious food! Serve the lobster warm and the accompaniments cold.

Recipes & Cooking

Scallops and Wild Garlic Butter Method: *Defrost the Scallops. *Preheat your grill, or oven if you prefer to 210C. *Lightly oil and season each of the Scallops, preheat a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat, add your Scallops and fry for 30 second until golden brown, then flip over and fry for a further 30 seconds on the other side. *Remove the Scallops from the pan and place them in the shells. *Slice the Wild Garlic Butter into 4 and place a slice of butter on top of each Scallop. *Place the shells onto a baking try and then place under the grill or into the oven. If using a grill, they will need 2 minutes until the butter has melted and started to bubble around the side. If using an oven, they will need at least 5 minutes. *Serve with a nice green salad and some crusty bread. LOBSTER Method: * Oil and season the lobster halves with salt and pepper. * Arrange the Lobster halves on the grill, shell side up, making sure that the lobster claws are positioned so that they heat through too. * When the lobster meat is clearly cooking - you’ll notice it hissing and bubbling - at about 5 minutes turn the halves over so the cut side is facing up. Cook for a further 1-2 minutes. * Wash and prepare the salad leaves * Serve the Lobster with the mayonnaise and pickled Fennel

Sustainability & Provenance

We are really proud of the provenance and quality of our Cornish lobster. We have close relationships with a small number of fishermen and many of them land directly to us. Not only that we provide them with bait for their pots in the form of our fish frames and waste. This is a real win win as it eliminates the need for us to dispose of our waste and provides our fishermen with free bait. [Read more](https://www.fishforthought.co.uk/blog/sustainable-lobster)

The Best Lobsters

As ever, everything arrived OK thanks and we’ve just eaten the lobsters (a Valentine’s treat for my wife – oh all right, for me too!). The substitution of Turbot in place of the Brill I ordered, which was unavailable, was fine and much appreciated. Thanks for that. Finally, as I’ve said before, your new packaging is a huge improvement and makes the whole process much easier at the receiving end. I keep mentioning FFT to family and friends so I hope you get some more sales from them.

Our perfect meal

Thank you very much for the really wonderful lobsters that I found outside my door on Saturday morning.  They were delicious and a great hit with my guests in the evening!  I have never seen such big claws! We had some fun getting the hammer out to break into them.... Thank you for a perfect meal with special friends and the chance to celebrate in great, messy, style! Thank you for the freshness of the lobsters and for the very efficient delivery just on the day they were needed! Congratulations on a very good job, well delivered and well done.

Wedding Anniversary Celebrations!

just thought I'd drop you a quick email to let you know our order arrived on Saturday morning. I opened the box and it smelled like Cornwall, the sea. The mussels were superb in the mariniere sauce and the lobster thermidor was fantastic! We were treating ourselves as it is our 26th wedding anniversary tomorrow and to be honest, we prefer to buy the very best ingredients and cook ourselves than go to a restaurant and be disappointed. We were delighted with the quality of the fish, as always.
