Hi Gang,
As mentioned on another thread, I'm up for supporting British producers and keen to know who you rate etc.
Still trying to find that photo MOG

In the meantime if think you of great British producers please post here. I'd love to try your suggestions.

I shall be buying local from my local this evening, (to go, obviously). Thai meal for two and a crate of Jail Ale from the Royal Oak, which is an agonising 52 seconds to my front door!

God bless the village pub (link)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Day boat caught fish from Looe overnight DPD next day delivery.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Same as above.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Try their free range duck beautifully reared and presented we have their Geese every year for Christmas and as an ex Goose breeder and rearer I can honestly say they are as good as any Ive had.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] As it says on the tin.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Best Beef Ive ever had, grass fed, local rare breed pop into their shop at Pennygillam Launceston cracking Sausage and takeaway counter with home made pies and baps with bacon and sausage, Their dry cure Cornish bacon is awesome as well.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Not tried this yet but a cider drinking friend recommended.

Not putting any links up but one thing that really grinds my gears is anglers buying gear/tackle etc online, granted it's sometimes cheaper but often of poor quality and the local shops could do with the business. There are a few decent ones scattered around the muff but a particular fave of mine is sea view angling at faraday mill, very well stocked shop, best selection of lures I've seen(if that's your thing) and reasonably priced.

For balance I would never usually order food online this has just happened since lockdown I normally would drive to Plymouth or Looe to buy my fish.

That's fair enough although I do think over lockdown things have changed for the better with loads of people cutting out the middle men in the supply chain which means food is cheaper and fresher. As a nation we need to fall in love with fish again.

Fish wise I only like cod or cod substitute (pollock?), salmon, tuna and a little bit of haddock. Just can’t eat shellfish except prawns and they have to be peeled or shell off.

Farmed Salmon is fatty shite with on the whole a dodgy food source. If I were you Shonbo I'd try a small Lemon Sole, the whole fish not fillets it easily comes off the bone when cooked. fry in a little oil and butter on a medium heat for a few minutes each side. Better to undercook slightly than overlook nice golden brown skin colour mmm.
A classic finish is brown butter and capers a real piece of piss. Put the fish on a warm plate in a warm not hot oven to rest wipe your pan add an once of butter per person. Get your pan hot throw in the butter and leave it whilst it changes colour. When it's a nice nut brown chuck in a tablespoon one chopped capers pp and a good squeeze of lemon. The sauce takes less than five minutes. Plate up the fish and pour butter and capers over the fish.

Local catch which is good Hake, Gilt Head Bream (not Greek farmed obvs) Plaice, and Soles including Lemon, Megrim Dovers, pricey but no more than a decent Steak. Gurnard fillets are lovely or you can bake a whole fish in a foil parcel with some wine and herbs.
Turbot is priced like Lonster but is the king of fish IMO and lets not forget the Monkfish used to be used and sold as Scampi in many a British pub.
Another nice recipe and better for people that don't like fishy fish is fried fish with rice and peas take your fish (you could use cheaper fish like Ling or Whiting fillets) rub with curry powder and season, fry until nice and crispy brown then serve with rice and peas in a caribean style, rice spring onions coconut milk chili and ginger with a tin of kidney beans.

Have you tried peppered Mackerel, not strictly local but tasty as fook.

I like all fish, fried or grilled, less is more I think.

March is going to be a bit of a health kick month for me (much needed as 12 months of Covid living has seen me gain a fookin stone Crying or Very sad ) so I’ll be eating a lot of fish, eggs & lean meats. I will endeavour to try one or two species I haven’t yet tasted.

Ask the fishmonger for whole fish for one person, take off head and trim frills. Easy to do with scissors but they will happily do it for you, fillets are delicious but I don't think you can beat a fish cooked on the bone.

Who doesn't love a Bass? I would say that the Bream is its equal.

Agreed it's why I like Rick Stien, fresh fish, simply cooked.
