Stay local for freshness

It’s easy to forget how lucky we are to live on the coast and to still have lots of small fishing boats that bring us such riches.

The boats go out for the day so not only is the fish they catch local, it’s brought to shore the same day as it’s caught so is super fresh.

Here’s a selection of the local fish available now.

Local Dover sole: a flatfish named for the port of Dover because they caught the most! It’s delicate and sweet meat is always a treat.

Local bass: take off the fillets and pan fry in butter until the skin is crispu and the flesh flakes. Hard to beat.

Local dog fish: not a pretty fish (well a small shark actually) but rather tasty turned into goujons and dipped into garlic mayo.
