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...

Gilt-head sea bream - whole

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...

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...

Lemon sole - whole
Lemon sole - whole
The lemon sole lives in the shadow of its stellar cousin from Dover... marine biologists even put it about that it ’is not really a sole at all’ how mean-minded can you get? Take it from us: the lemon sole makes a very fine meal, and you...

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...
From £5.60
Witch sole
Witch sole
There’s no getting away from it, the witch sole is basically a poor man’s Dover sole. But don’t write it off. The one in the picture disappeared down four fork-wielding employees as soon as the photographer finished. And it comes in nice...
