They are fast growing and abundant fish, landed along the south west coast daily, using gill nets and demersal and beam trawls. When landed by demersal trawl and netted, they are 'Recommended' by The Cornwall Good Seafood Guide, and these are the fish that we source.
Gurnard is a beautiful looking fish sometimes referred to as angelfish. It remains very much underrated, making it good value, although prices have gone up as it has been discovered. With this quick and easy to follow video guide you too can prepare a delicious fillet or two in no time under the guidance of our expert mongers!
With Halloween fast approaching, we thought we’d serve you some monsters from the briny deep! We think that all the fish in the sea are beautiful – think of the stunning, striped markings on mackerel skin, the sparkle and glisten of a salmon’s scales - even the cute orange spots on a plaice. However – there are some fish that definitely wouldn’t ‘win’ any beauty contests, despite being healthy and delicious! Read on for some fearsome feast ideas.
It’s one of our biggest distractions here at FFT HQ – deciding how to cook and serve what we love the most… seafood! Should I make a fish pie? Perhaps a simple, grilled fillet with crusty bread and salad? Maybe a hearty stew? There’s endless ways to prepare and enjoy seafood so we’ve compiled 5 of our favourite techniques which guarantee amazing results – however you choose to eat it!
Delicious Recipe Box
When I ordered the cod cakes I thought I was a bit nutty paying £8 a meal for them, but these were not supermarket fish cakes. Absolutely delicious, firm texture and held together well during cooking. The tomato sauce with them went really well too. I would never have thought of combining the two flavours. I'll order them again if Chef puts them on the menu. The Gurnard was also lovely. It cooks really well and is delicious. I think I read somewhere (maybe it was your information) that gurnard isn't a popular fish, but I have no idea why. I'd say it is my favourite. Maybe the name's a bit off-putting, given that gurning is a Lake District sport in which the winner is the one who can contort his face into the ugliest shape. The bouillabaise sauce was a perfect accompaniment and the carrot, parsnip and coriander mash made a refreshing change from potato mash and I'm going to nick that idea for my own meals. Sorry, Chef! So thanks for a lovely week of meals once again.
Gurnard - who knew?!
We are looking forward to our gurnard tonight! It's a fish I'd never tried until I started buying from you and it is now one of my wife's and my favourites. By the way, I really enjoyed Paul's personal video email about the new service. More fish, more meals and better value without all the veg etc. And less weight to transport around the country. A big thumbs up from us.
