Catch of the Day – the freshest of fish right here on your doorstep!
Our Catch of the Day is available in store every Friday, sustainable fresh fish that is caught in small boats in Cornwall only 36 hours before; this is the freshest fish on the high street and tastes fantastic.
This weekend, starting Friday 17th May we have the following in store:
Haddock – £3
• A white-fleshed salt water fish often compared with cod in flavour and texture. Found on the seabed of cold northern seas in Europe and North America. Our Cornish Haddock is fully sustainable.
• Tell our Cornish haddock apart from the competition – Look for fresh white flesh without a grey tinge.
• Haddock is a versatile fish that is fantastic baked whole in its skin (to prevent the fish from falling apart). It is also great battered and fried to make fish and chips or in a rich fish pie.
Hake – £5
The various fish that come under the banner ‘hake’ are deep-sea members of the cod family and are popular throughout Europe and America. Hake is quite a mild fish, with a white flaky texture and a flavour that is more subtle than that of cod. The flesh when raw is naturally very soft, but when cooked it becomes firm and meaty. In France, hake is called ‘saumon blanc’ (which translates as ‘white salmon’).
Fillets require little preparation as the skin is soft, hake takes robust flavours well, particularly tomatoes, garlic, chorizo and paprika.
Megrim – £3
•This is a flat fish from the brill and turbot family. It can be cooked like sole or plaice. Megrim is a good fish to use in fishcakes and homemade fish fingers.
•Megrim goes really well with ginger and garlic and is great in a capers, parsley and lemon sauce
