We're still going on about our dressed crabs. Because they are completely fresh, not pasteurised like most you can buy, these have been such a success at the fishmongers. We get nothing but compliments because they are so good. Chunky crab meat laid back in the shell, with a claw for decoration on top. With the added bonus of no cooking required!
And we recently had hake while on holiday (well, more than once) and thought it time to recommend it to you as a great fish, often overlooked in favour of cod and haddock.
And you can't beat salmon, it's one of those perennial favourites. Order from us before Sunday midnight and we'll send you a FREE 180g fillet, just so you can remind yourself how good it is! Fresh salmon from Shetland, from farms where the fish have room to swim.

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. The Smelly Alley Fish Company specializes in fresh Cornish fish, and it's prepared by us according to how you want it, from portions of salmon to skinned fillets of seabass to whole, cleaned whiting, they are not pre-packed, ready-made frozen portions. 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.
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 still call it. Now there is just one fishmonger, one greengrocer and one butcher, and we are in Reading, Berkshire.
