Jumbo Newlyn Plaice
Perfect for Troncon
Another tell tale sign of summer when these large Plaice show their faces.
During the winter months they come in shore to spawn so become heavily filled with roe. All of the energy these fish have go into producing their roe so once it’s been shot in early spring the fish become paper thin.
Now in early summer they are at their prime big and fat and perfect for Tronçon, a classic French cut meaning a cross section of a large flat fish.

The humble ‘Cornish Pilchard’ was re branded as the ‘Cornish Sardine’ in the 1990’s to help regenerate a history rich fishery.
A lot of Cornwalls heritage and towns have been built around this fishery, where generations of fisherman have used the same ring netting techniques as their fore fathers to catch these humble fish.
Generally caught in the early hours in and around Mounts Bay they are best eaten when fresh out the water!
Delivered from ship to plate in 48 hours!
