Compare this lovely fish favourably to wild salmon,

1.5kg fish

We will fillet them for you, but you should really order, cook and serve them whole to appreciate just what lovely fish they are

salmon offer

Fresh, never-been-frozen Shetland Salmon Fillet

Healthy omega-3 rich salmon - prime fillets from the Shetlands. 180g fillets, down by a £.

Easy to cook, lots of recipes for salmon here. We especially like this recipe for Teriyaki Salmon.

Our customers told us that 200g portions are too big for one, and two small for two, so we have changed to a more manageable 180g portions. The price dropped by a £ then again, exactly in accordance with the drop in size!

About The Smelly Alley Fish Company

A real Traditional Fishmonger

Delivering seafood to your door since 1997

The Smelly Alley Fish Company is a real traditional town-centre fishmonger, so you can order from an enormous range of fish and shellfish, from salmon to scallops, from lobsters to lemon soles, from turbot to tuna, from cod to cuttlefish.

We specialise in fresh Cornish fish, and it's prepared by us according to how you want it, from portions of samon to skinned fillets of seabass to whole, cleaned whiting. Our seafood is not pre-packed, ready-made frozen portions produced in a factory.

Your fish will be delivered when you want it. It arrives in a sealed box, clean and odour-free. All fish is individually vacuum-packed, with ice, ready to cook or put straight into the freezer.

We often have offers on our products, or even reductions on your shopping carts. The last one was 15% off!  We also tell you about seasonal fish, bargain fish and send you news about what's new at the fishmongers. If you want to make sure you hear about these offers, sign up for our Newsletter!

What's in the 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 still call it. Now there is just one fishmonger, one greengrocer and one butcher and we are in Reading, Berkshire.
