Fish of the Month


half shell scallop


Cornish Hand-Line Mackerels 


A superb fish, great value, readily available and yet, amazingly underrated.

Ranging in size from 200g to 800g, Mackerel has a bullet shaped body with silvery-blue skin with dark wavy stripes.

One of the richest sources of Omega-3, Mackerel has greyish flesh with a rich flavour, which is best grilled, fried or barbequed. Also rumoured to improve brain power, fish fingers great idea for the little ones!


As with most oily fish, it is good for smoking, and makes a great pate.

While Herrings provide the best alternative, Mackerel is closely related to Tuna.


Also rumoured to improve brain power, fish fingers great idea for the little ones!

Cornish Brill 1/2kg and 2kg +


We tend to buy the bigger fish when it comes to Brill. Brill is a very fine fish and some of the best examples land on British shores. Similar to turbot in having succulent, slightly sweet flesh, it benefits from being easier to prepare and a little less expensive than its illustrious cousin. Buying a 1.5kg brill will yield four reasonably sized fillets. Avoid small, immature fish (less than 1kg). Choose thicker brill with bright, un-sunken eyes.

  • Availble sizes 1/2kg-2/4kg
