Curried Lobster Soup and Cornish Hake with Spanish Bean Stew

iCurrently out of stock - please check back soon.

Lobster as you’ve never known it. The sweetness of our Cornish pot-caught lobster meat balances beautifully with artfully blended rich and subtle Madras spice, and served with a chunky tomato, roasted pepper, coriander leaf and lobster oil dressing for a bit of bite and freshness.

For the main course, a rich and uplifting dish packed with summery Mediterranean colour and flavour. Deliciously chunk portions of truly sustainable Cornish Hake served on a bed of thick bean and tomato-based stew layered with savoury notes of garlic and a moreish punch of chilli, accompanied by kale. Cornish hake is a really delicious sustainable alternative to cod, with more than 3 times the omega-3 levels. We source large fish of between 3 and 5 kg, and hand-cut each one into beautiful thick portions for this dish.

You will receive:
400g pouch of Curried Lobster Soup (Fresh)
60g pouch of Tomato, Coriander & Lobster Oil Salsa (Fresh)
2 x 180g Cornish Hake fillet Portions (Frozen)
300g pouch of Spanish-style Bean Stew (Fresh)
60g Kale (Fresh)

Wine & Seafood Pairing with Fiona Beckett
We’ve also teamed up with food and wine pairing expert and journalist Fiona Beckett, who has created three extra special wine pairings to complement our Easter Seafood Collection. Each main course has been given its perfect partner in wine, selected to enhance the beautiful flavours of the dish and elevate the whole dining event. Add one to your order and dive into Fiona’s wonderfully accessible tasting notes (no pretension here) for an especially enjoyable and enlightening seafood experience.

“Finding the best wine to go with a dish is like finding the perfect side. Just think of those occasions on holiday when you've enjoyed a plate of seafood with the local wine and how those occasions have stuck in your memory. It just raises the whole eating experience to another level.”

The perfect wine for this outstanding hake dish is Gavanza Rioja Reserva
– why not add a bottle to your order? Available on our Easter Collection page, where you can also read Fiona’s tasting notes.

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.

Beautiful Hake

Morning - just wanted to pay you the highest compliments on the outstanding quality of the fish we received from you last week in our first order. We haven't got through it all yet of course, but the hake fillet especially was just wonderful. I'd managed to forget just how good top quality hake is, but yours absolutely hit the mark - large fish, pristinely fresh and with that characteristically sweet flavour which distinguishes hake from cod. We'll certainly be ordering again - thanks very much
