Here are some of the most popular types of fish in the fishmongers, they’re just in. We’ve been waiting for good herrings and sardines, they are now here!

HAKE
is really good at the moment, it is a real summer fish. We're getting some big fish, a good cutting size. Order as steaks or fillets. Most hake from Cornwall is sent to Spain, Portugal and Italy where it is highly prized, order some and find out why! Hake is soft when uncooked, it firms up with cooking. Nothing nicer than a hake fillet dipped in a light batter (good made with soda water and seasoned flour) and deep fried.

SARDINES
We’
ve waited a long time, but sardines are at last coming good! Order whole sardines, cleaned sardines or sardine fillets. They are all great on the barbecue, if using fillets they only take a few minutes.

HERRINGS
Large fresh herrings from Norway! They are hard to get these days as
most go to Germany. If you like herrings buy to put in your freezer, only because they are so scarce. Most will have hard roe, if you particularly like herring with roe put a note when you order – there’s space where you write "leave in porch” etc. They will be 250g, but that’s a minimum. They are very economical, only £2.65 each.

BUTTERFISH OR REDFISH
Butterfish or redfish from
Iceland. They look a bit like red snappers, but might be nicer! Great on the barbecue. These featured last week but these are twice the size! You'll get at least 1.5kg. So nice to look at, they will be a real conversation piece! Only 11.60, that's a 10% drop in price.

HALIBUT
Wild large
Atlantic halibut, a wonderful fish, a bit pricey but there’s no waste and it’s quite meaty, so you don’t need to go overboard in your portion sizes. A 150g fillet (plenty for one) is £6.50, that’s a bargain. Don’t let halibut dry out when cooking, and it’s robust enough to take Chinese or other Asian flavours, but it’s also good cooked simply as in the photograph – baked with almonds and a few small knobs of butter on top.

Delivery is free if you order over £50, that’s £30 if you live in the Reading area
