A British summer is a wonderful thing! When it’s warm and the sky’s blue, 80% of the population rush to gather outside with friends and family to feast alfresco. You never know how long the sun will stick around, so cram as much fun and flavour as possible into every hour with our genius barbecue hacks, guaranteed to blow your mind!
We love salmon at Fish for Thought. Delicious, versatile and nutritionally dense, salmon has it all! Our salmon comes from the Shetland Islands, where the conditions are perfect for producing lean and fit fish that stay in peak condition, thanks to the strong, fast tidal flow of the local waters encouraging the fish to swim constantly. Here are our four favourite recipes to help you create super tasty dishes at home.
With the season subtly shifting towards autumn and as we get back into the ‘swing’ after a glorious summer, now is the perfect time to revisit your kitchen routine, particularly now the kids are #BackToSchool! Seafood is full of health benefits and we would encourage you to try and squeeze at least two portions into your weekly meal plans.
Seafood in general is fantastic for your health at all stages of life, but can be particularly beneficial for the little ones as they’re growing. Following on from our last post about spectacular seafood packed lunches, this week we’re looking at the health benefits of fish and shellfish for children!
Here at Fish for Thought, we think fish and seafood are fantastic food staples for the whole family. Not only nutritious and delicious, they have a huge range of health benefits that are particularly important for children as they grow and develop. With this in mind, here are our three favourite, easy recipes that’ll get your little ones enthusiastic about a winner fish dinner!
Calling all health-heroes, foodies, fitness-freaks and people who love blogs with facts in them. We have crunched the numbers, researched data, looked at spreadsheets and even hired a fish-whisperer to ask the fish themselves to find out which ones are the highest in protein. Of course, our history and expertise within the seafood industry also helps a lot but we thought best leave nothing to chance.
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!

Your fish is far better than any locally sourced
We have been ordering our fish from you for many years: firstly when we lived in Hampshire then when we moved to Scotland and then when we moved to Somerset. You have consistently supplied excellent fish that has been far better than any locally sourced.
The freshest we have had for absolutely ages
We had salmon, hake and haddock which arrived speedily at the time you promised. The container was excellent and although I was nervous of getting fish online, I have to say it is the best thing we have done. We love fish and it is probably the freshest we have had for absolutely ages and is a pleasure to eat.
The fish was all super fresh!
Yes, the fish all arrived in perfect condition early on Friday morning. The smoked mackerel, salmon, halibut and wild sea bass were all delicious - bream and plaice now in the freezer - and I have received many compliments from my guests over the weekend. Like to think some of the compliments were for my cooking(!) but the fish was all top quality and super fresh. Have passed your details to one of my friends as well. Will definitely order from you in the future!
Salmon for a special occasion
I made salmon en croute with my salmon and it was superb. It was for my parents golden wedding anniversary and part of a menu to feed 30. It was absolutely delightful.
I'm a first time Customer and would like to say ...
Thank you for your email, and would like to give you our feedback from a first time customer. Our order arrived as promised before mid-day yesterday. And was packaged extremely well. We enjoyed both the thai fish soup and the salmon last night. The soup was fragrant and delicious. And was a nice size for the two of us. The salmon was to die for! So fresh and tasty, and we both loved the sauce that came with it. Tonight we are trying the lobster mac n' cheese with a nice dressed salad and crusty bread. Without trying it I know based on the produce that we have already eaten; that we will love it. We both wanted to thank you for the complimentary hake that you sent us. Ive already been looking up recipe ideas and have come up with a simple butter and herb sauce to accompany it. Being a couple who would much rather eat a fish dish, than a meat dish we are very happy to have found your company, and will ordering again. I have my eye on one of your boxes to try next.
I just wanted to let you know that the salmon fillet delivered yesterday was absolutely delicious. I made a Salmon en Croute for some friends who all enjoyed the quality of the salmon (and my cooking of course). Thank You
What A Pleasure
I just had to express my thanks for a very tasty evening meal – Salmon en Papillote or to country boys like me Thai style Salmon - How tasty was that, a real lick your lips dinner cooked at home. We have been purchasing from you for a few years now and in our opinion you have greatly raised the bar for people who enjoy sea food, price is right, packing is perfect and delivery is good. I recycle the box you send it in, the wool liner I am using to line a plant cold frame I make this year and we keep the ice packs to keep food cool when we defrost the freezer. Thank you very much from two very happy customers.
Delighted to receive our combination box on time and it is always exciting to open it and to plan a few menus using the delicious sauces. Homemade fish pie tonight! Delighted to see that you are moving towards ready cooked meals and the crab bake was great for lunch for a single person. We will be repeating that order and I would have thought there was a big market for you in these products, particularly single portions for OAPs who want something to pop into the Aga. Freezer well stocked now!
A regular delight
Thank you! Just had my box delivered, bang on time as usual. Salmon looks superb - that's my dinner tonight sorted!! Such a brilliant service and so pleased I found you guys. All the very best for 2020 and I hope your business continues to thrive. You do make it very easy to do business with you.
Kids 3 Omega Box a hit!
Well done all of you to keep on truckin’. I introduced a chum of mine to you this week she’s delighted with the kids pack as she’s nigh on 90, still cooks but does like some easy cook alternatives.
Quality Fish and Shellfish
I love the idea of being able to have quality fish & seafood delivered to my home. We celebrated on Christmas Day with a Mussels starter and the Salmon en Croute with Lobster sauce, wonderful! A friend and I have ordered several times now and the service and quality cannot be faulted.
Highest quality praise
Earlier on in the week I set out on a mission to find a new fish delivery as my old one shut down. I tried every fish delivery I could find on google and your fish was the highest quality, excellent customer service and delivery. I wanted to say thank you and as of now I will be becoming a regular.
