FISH ON FRIDAYS
Yes, in just about the furthest place from the sea in Britain, Squisito are bring you 'Fish on Fridays' direct from Port Isaac and Newlyn in Cornwall to the High Street in Yelvertoft.
Squisito fish is fresh not frozen and fished sustainably in Cornish and Devon waters by UK registered boats so it's a bit different to supermarket fish and 'Doc Martin'.
What's a Best Buy this month?
Learn what's in season so you can buy fish that is at it's best prior to spawning - since weight and flavour is not so good afterwards - and when it is plentiful since the price you pay is governed by demand because fresh fish prices vary from week to week according to what the boats catch e.g. it's fresh not frozen and it's not T&%co!
Squisito will be introducing you to our less known native species and sharing some of our family recipes since Sara grew up by the seaside (and where her Mum lives today - hence the Cornwall connection!) So, if you fancy a bit of skate you'll find it's either high priced elsewhere and not available from Cornwall now skate are protected in Cornish waters. So what we'll do is tell you about other great flat fish like Megrim Sole and Plaice which are plentiful and cheap this time of year.
This week Squisito will have one large mixed box of fresh fish so when it's gone, it's gone.
But Squisito can take orders for next Friday subject to availability since none of our fish is previously frozen at sea or otherwise so you can stock your freezer when prices are low and the fish are in best condition.
