Photo Roll – Fishing Around

It’s been a fishy few weeks for the gentleman and I. Lots of fresh fish from great places, and I was compelled to document it. Here’s a bit of the seafood in my life lately. All the pics are taken with an iPhone. Not up to the usual standards, but some eats just need to be documented.

A couple of the fish monger’s wares… including the bass we ate for dinner.

In my gentleman and cooking partner’s neighborhood, there’s a great fishmonger who hangs out in a church yard, every weekend. He sells some great fish, straight from the south coast of England. When we stop by late in the afternoon, it’s pretty much a requirement to pick up the discounted scallops on a half-shell.

The gentleman took over scallop duty and we ended up with this amazing Alton Brown -inspired starter.

The scallops didn’t disappoint, especially when the gentleman popped them in the oven with breadcrumbs, tomatoes and loads of other great things. And those croutons – created from homemade sourdough bread.

And my contribution … Portland Bass stuffed with spinach, garlic and lemon. Tasty!!

Scotland does some pretty delicious fish. I am a bit of a smoked salmon addict, but visiting Edinburgh gave me a chance to have a lot more than just smoky pink fish.

We had dinner at a great place called Fishers in the City, which I’d recommend to any seafood-lover.

One langostine of many, primed for battle. I won, but not without some scars.

These guys were tough to eat – we both ended up with battle wounds – but they were well worth the effort. I kind of wish I had some right now…

Plaice fillets, smoked bacon, macadamia nut stuffing and beurre blanc at Fishes in Edinburgh.

What a combo! I would have never thought of stuffing fish with nuts, and then bacon, too? It worked though. It won’t be long before I have a cabinet full of nut butters.
