Any good fishmonger should fillet! I have had people asking me to fillet sardine it should all be part of the service!

PurplePidjin Wed 23-Apr-14 20:29:48

I usually grab a bag of mixed stuff for £2 in Sainsburys freezer bit blush in my defence, the fish man on the market doesn't do anything suitable! We did have nice lemon sole the other week, and he even filletted it for me shock

Red mullet is sustainable but it is a fashionable fish at the minute. I would buy through the summer, gut and freeze, it isn't getting any older in the freezer.......don't leave longer than 4 months tho!

Wherediparkmybroom Wed 23-Apr-14 20:15:26

Fusilli, wander down I'll make you a cuppa

Wherediparkmybroom Wed 23-Apr-14 20:14:22

Grey mullet for fish pie ! 4.95 per kilo it's really a nice fish...just cheap!!!!

Wherediparkmybroom Wed 23-Apr-14 20:12:41

My boys have discovered smoked mackerel, thinking fondly of the time they liked Dover sole!

OhMrGove Wed 23-Apr-14 20:11:12


Because you should be feeding it to ME.

Wherediparkmybroom Wed 23-Apr-14 20:08:42

Hi fussilli!

I usually cook salmon by wrapping in foil on a bed of sliced orange or lemon or line and the stalks of any fresh herbs I have in the fridge. Squeeze of lemon juice and season seal the parcel and bake for 20-30 mins.

One minute cooking the grown up dinner!

Sounds lovely!

Easiest fish pie ever:

Poach "fish pie mix" in seasoned milk (pepper, mixed herbs, whatever). Remove all but about 1/4" of the milk from the pan with a ladle. Stir in half a bag or ready grated cheddar. Transfer to a ceramic oven dish. Top with frozen mash yes I sometimes use packet stuff Fridge/freeze for later or top with more cheese and oven for 20 minutes.

Giles - for the samphire, it is classed as the asparagus of the sea. Simply steam, or fry gently in butter and serve with the fish of your choice, (no salt, as it is already quite salty). It is delicious!!

Could I plse be very cheeky and ask a question, Where'd?

I love red mullet, it is one of my favourite fish, it was the very first fish I introduced to my daughter's diet, lots of cookery programmes recommend it in their recipes HOWEVER it seems very hard to come by on our shores.

Apparently just recently it should have been in plentiful supply - in British waters, but, I have only been able to buy it online for several years. Why is this? I've asked all our local supermarkets to stock it, and they can't. WHY?? It is very frustrating.

I suppose what I'm asking is, how can we ask for sustainable fish to be readily obtainable?

Cheers Where's!

<<makes mental note to avoid Sainsbos paella mix>>

I'm trying to lose weight at the mo and there are some great recipes in the Hairy Dieters books - Chilli & Lemon Tuna with broccoli spaghetti, and sticky ginger & chilli salmon are my favourites.

Did lose my mojo a bit the other week when I came home to find DH had done homemade moules mariniere and crusty bread and butter!

I wish I could tempt DD into eating fish again - she'd eat all sorts as a toddler but won't touch so much as a fish finger now sad .

I am in walking distance, therefore I nominate myself as official mumsnet taster. I have been meaning to pop over to the other side of the island.
