Buy quality fresh fish and shellfish for Christmas from a real fishmonger

Fresh and frozen fish and shellfish for home delivery

We weren’t expecting fresh fish so early in the new year as we were told that transport wouldn’t be running, but it is and we have some lovely fresh fish just in from Cornwall!

These are excellent rainbow trout from a trout farm at Padworth, in west Berkshire. There are two sizes, 500g or 1kg. Both are great baked whole, especially the larger trout, it's an ideal substitute for a whole salmon when you don't want the size of a salmon. We'll fillet both for you if you prefer fillets. The larger 1kg trout are an especially great bargain, they're £8, that's down from £10.20.
We've just had some excellent Arbroath smokies delivered, they are real smokies from Arbroath, not like some supermarket "smokies" that haven't even been to the town. EC 'Protected Geographical Status' means only haddock smoked using traditional methods within a 5-mile radius of Arbroath can use the name 'Arbroath Smokies' Our supplier, Mr Spink, calls them 'a truly mouth-watering experience'.  They are smoked until they are cooked, but we like them warmed.  Easiest to eat with your fingers.

Just had some Spanish swordfish delivered, it's unusual to get this fish from Europe.  This is fresh, not frozen and is down from £7.50 to £6.25 - just as long as we get deliveries from Spain! Here's a photo of swordfish grilled with garlic and black pepper.  It's also great cooked with ginger and chilli!

Start the year with some excellent scallops at an excellent price! Fresh from the Shetlands!
They are only 1.00 each, they weigh 35g. They’ve never been frozen so you’re not paying for ice, just for scallops – what we call in the trade "dry scallops”!
Need a recipe? The quicker you cook them the better, they are great just fried in butter for a few minutes on each side, serve them with the melted butter or a dash of single cream that you’ve added to the pan just a few seconds before serving. A sprinkle of chopped coriander or parsley finishes the dish. They are often teamed with black pudding or streaky bacon, in which case cook these in advance because they will take longer than the scallops, combine at the last minute.

DELIVERY IS ALWAYS FREE IF YOU ORDER OVER £50 (but find out more HERE for remote areas and Saturdays). If you live in the Reading area, you only need to order £30 for free delivery!  FIND OUT MORE ABOUT DELIVERY HERE.

What's in a name? We're in a street that has had food shops in it for hundreds of years. In the 1600s it had an open sewer running down its length, so it became known as Smelly Alley, and that's what local people call it. Now there is just one fishmonger, one greengrocer and one butcher, and we are in Reading, Berkshire.
Wonderful fresh and frozen fish and shellfish just waiting to be delivered to you!
