Fish Preparation Guide

Fresh Fish Filleted:
Fillets are the most commonly used cut. The fish is taken off the bone to create a fillet which is then pin-boned. Fillets cut from larger fish can subsequently be cut into portions also known as Supremes. Skin remains on all fillets unless otherwise stated.

Types of Fish: Cod Brill, Dabs, Dover sole, Gurnards, Herring, Lemon Sole, Megrim Sole, Monkfish, Plaice, Pollock, Rainbow, Trout, Salmon, Sardines, Sea Bass and Whiting

Please note while every care has been taken to remove bones in fillets, there may be some remaining

Whole Oven Ready Fish:
Hand prepared in house fish is gutted and scaled, ready for cooking in the oven, BBQ or pan. Fish stays super juicy when cooked on the bone.

Cooking & Storage

Mackerel, which is well-known for its grilling abilities, is also delicious when simply grilled, pan-fried, or baked in the oven. It responds well to being kept simple, allowing the fish's ocean flavour to shine through, and, of course, it smokes exceptionally well. Mackerel is a good match for earthy flavours like beets and gooseberries.

Simple oven roasting of whole mackerel with lemon, rosemary, and bay leaves is delicious. If preparing for the grill, we recommend cleaning the fish and removing the head, but leaving the rest of the fish intact. This makes it easier to handle with tongs and helps to keep the fish together while cooking over high heat.

It's best to eat it right away. Refrigerate between 0°C and 5°C and consume within 2-3 days. If you won't be able to eat it within three days, freeze it on the day of delivery and eat it within three months. Refrigerate overnight to defrost. Do not refreeze.
