Whole Fish

WOW - LOOKS GREAT, TASTES FANTASTIC


A large whole fish makes an eye-catching centrepiece. Serve 3, 4, 5... sometimes as many as a dozen. Here's a rule of thumb: if it's the ONLY main course, each kilo of fish will give you four reasonable servings, so a 3 kg fish will feed 12 well and could stretch to 14.  But it's always best to be on the safe side, size-wise. Better to have some left over for the next day than to run out.

Or choose portion-sized whole fish such as bass and bream. These provide a fine experience ESPECIALLY if you discard your your knife, fork amd inhibitions... FINGERS ARE THE ANSWER (and fingerbowls).

A headless trimmed 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...

Two whole plaice
Whole plaice
These really are the finest fish we can source for a top ’plaice on the bone’ experience. Smaller fish are presented with head, tail and fins removed. Larger ’specimen’ fish have minimal trimming so you can admire the whole thing - these...

Two whole turbot on white background
Whole turbot
Make a spectacular centrepiece with a whole baked turbot. True, getting the fillet portions neatly off the bone needs a bit of practice. So why don't you get started with a small fish? (We recommend a pair of Victorian fish servers which...

Two whole lemon sole in a basket with two lemon sole fillets
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...

Whole baked rainbow trout with salad and spice
Whole 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...

Whole large organic salmon on ice background
Whole organic salmon
Our organic salmon is farmed in the Shetland Isles to the standards of The Organic Food Federation. It’s paler than normal farmed salmon. If the salmon is the only item you are serving as the main course, you will need about 200g of...

Two whole cuttlefish on a chopping board
Whole 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 superb piece of...

Raw skinless Dover sole
Dover sole - skinless
Ssshh keep it quiet. We like to hold a very small quantity of skinned Dover soles. We have three versions - ’fully-trimmed’ means the fish is headless as well as skinless, ’skinless’ means they still have their heads, 'half skinned'...

Two headless flounders
Flounders
Many people would mistake a flounder for a plaice, and you should cook it in exactly the same way. It’s pretty humble fare, but has a loyal following. We only stock this fish intermittently, when we can find specimens of above average...

Whole headless megrim sole
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...

Alistair pretending to kiss a fine sea bass
Whole Wild Sea Bass - XL Trophy Fish
Specially reserved for investment bankers... looking for a centrepiece for your next banquet? Try one of these magnificent fish. Please note that fish above 2.5 kilos are over 24"/60cms long, so you’ll need to remove the tail to fit them...

On the bone garfish
Garfish on-the-bone steaks
The long and slender garfish is too thin to fillet so we only sell on-the-bone steaks. Which means you will get a close-up look at its remarkable green bones! The colour is perfectly natural and nothing to worry about. An...
