OK Sole first, then bass!!

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.

Cheers Earwig. I'm getting quite excited.

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.

Ooh you’re making my mouth water. Very Happy

Bass, hands down for me. Best tasting fish in the sea. I love you

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

Thanks Czarky. I'll have a go

Bring holidays into this as well,  staycation that what our families are doing

Book early as there are stories that some folk within our region are set to jack the prices of holidays up an eye-watering amount.

Yep and I'm one of them. Although we only run a summer business into Autumn we lost three whole months bookings last year and are looking at losing a month or two this spring the government handout is worked out over twelve months so we only get eighty per cent of the forty percent we have lost. I'm sure anybody will look to regain a little if they can.
The mad booking rush is being hyped up by the tourism bosses we haven't actually taken a booking in weeks although when I look at views on our letting site it has gone up from about ten views a day to over forty two days ago. Customers are checking but the empty calendars are there for all to see so I guess people are thinking there is no panic yet. Normally by now our unit would be booked for about thirty percent of the season by now and we have five days booked.

Sorry missed this post but no I keep my online life and real life very separate because of the freaks, it's just not worth it.
Since last week we have taken a few bookings for June half term and August, views are still way up but I think everybody can easily see empty calendars on booking sites so are waiting until last minute, can't say that I blame them.
Last year was the same but as soon as people were confident about booking it was pretty well full all summer.
