Anchovies - 'fresh'
Anchovies - 'fresh'
What, not tinned? No. And not salted either. Not even filleted. Er, did we mention not cleaned? Don’t worry you can cook and eat them whole if you like. A fantastic flavour experience, straight out of the sea, and not remotely like...

Whitebait
Whitebait
These whitebait, which are from the Baltic Sea, are between 5 and 10 cms (2-4 inches) long - a big one won’t go in sideways. You get about 80 fish in a pack. Dredge in flour and deep fry for about two and a half minutes. Did you ever try...

Herring - whole
Herring - whole
Herring has a great flavour and is exceptionally good for you, being full of useful oils. True, it’s not short of small bones, but with a little experience and care, you’ll be lifting the flesh off the bones without a second thought....

Dover sole - whole
Dover sole - whole
This superb fish needs no introduction. It tastes so good, that you should cook it simply: grill or bake with just a minimum of herbs. Beware that the midriff is a lot thicker than the tail, so position carefully in your grill so as not...

Flying fish
Flying fish
Did you know a flying fish - hardly more than a sardine - can stay aloft for over 30 seconds, reach 20 feet above water and cover 300 metres? Its culinary credentials are not to be scoffed at either. Especially in Barbados, where flying...

Cuttlefish
Cuttlefish
Whole cuttlefish, straight out of the sea (complete with famous budgerigar bill-sharpener - ’the mantle’). Whereas the octopus is all tentacles and not much body, the cuttlefish is tentacle-poor and body-rich - yielding a suberb piece of...

Freshwater eel - whole
Freshwater eel - whole
Eel gives some people the shudders, but it has a wonderful, rich meat. ’Sometimes, I think it’s my favourite fish’ said fish guru, Jane Grigson. Our eels are normally farmed eels from Ireland or Holland. We also offer steaks of eel and...

Rainbow trout
Rainbow trout
Our rainbow trout are absolutely beautiful and the eating qualities are on the same plane. There are two cleaned fish per pack. Normally, it’s one fish per portion but occasionally we have packs over 800g in weight: a rainbow trout of...

Silver pomfret
Silver pomfret
Fishionado Alan Davidson gave no less than five recipes for silver pomfret in his Seafood of South East Asia, including ’steamed in a banana leaf’. (He lists 20 other ingredients including yai-yo leaves but notes that it’s ’more suave...

Sardines
Sardines
Sardines beg to be eaten with your fingers. They normally come ’entire’ which means with the guts in*, so you’ll have to clean them - it is but a moment’s work. When you’ve done that, try stuffing the sardines with baby spinach and lemon...

Megrim sole - whole
Megrim sole - whole
The megrim is a perfectly fine fish, but it provokes comparison with the Dover sole. This is a contest it will never win: the flesh is less fine, the taste less sublime. But the contest is a nonsense: as if to compare mushrooms with...

Rascasse
Rascasse
The rascasse or scorpion fish is most famous for being the absolute number one essential ingredient in bouillabaisse. It achieved this reputation by dint of its special flavour, and also because its impressive battery of spines - these...
