Fish of the week

St Austell Bay Mussels

Can be bought in Nets of 2 Kilo or 5 Kilo.

Fully sustainable

Fully traceable

Our Mussels are one of the most consistent and prized assists we stock.

Supplied from ‘St Austell Bay’ only ten miles away and grown in the nutrient rich gulf stream, these Mussels are suspended off the sea floor creating a clean shelled and deliciously plump Mussel.

Over the years the growth of the mussels has created a marine aqua culture in the area, and now the waters are teaming with creatures and sea life.

They require little to no prep and are quite simply one of the most beautiful products the Cornish coast can provide.

Large ‘Salcombe Bay’ Crabs

Sustainable

Fully traceable

Available in from 1-2kg!

These living tanks of the sea can reach monstrous sizes in the sheltered bay South of Devon. They are fished exclusively with pots, arguably the most sustainable form of fishing.

With their unique rich flavour, the edible Brown Crab can improve a dish with a relatively small amount of its meat. Often overlooked for the more expensive Lobster, Crab is a must for all diehard seafood fans.

We recommend following the RSPCA’s preferred method of despatch which involves stunning the crab in the freezer prior cooking.

“We’ve been using Flying Fish for a number of years now. Their experience and understanding of the seasons, fish markets and chef requirements makes them ideal partners for The Hand and Flowers. The high standard of fish we receive on a daily basis from the Cornish day boats is outstanding and is an essential part of the produce driven menu that we have here at the pub”
