Top 5 sea fish to eat

Updated: Mar 3, 2018

My top 5 list of sea fish to eat excluding Cod & Haddock

Here in the UK even though we are surrounded by the sea we are not very adventurous with our fish.

“ Telling someone there are fish to eat other than Cod and Haddock in the UK is like giving a fish a bath.”

Reduce your battered fish intake and try something different for a change, and leave out the parsley sauce too!.

My top 5 sea fish to eat

5. Mackerel:

Simply grilled or barbecued simply brush the fillets with whole grain mustard, season with salt and pepper, place under a very hot grill and eat. Delicious.

4. Roast Monkfish:

To roast the monkfish, heat a large ovenproof frying pan, add a splash of olive oil, knob of butter and fry the fillets in the pan for 2 minutes. Then turn them over and put the pan in your preheated oven for 6 to 8 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets. Beautifully simple.

3. Baked Pollack with a cheddar and herb crust:

Pollack is a delicious flaky white fish that is seen as a more sustainable catch compared to cod and haddock. Encrust the fillets with a mix of mature cheddar, herbs and breadcrumbs for a great savoury taste and crispy texture. Serve this fish dish with a side of butter glazed green beans and some sautéed potatoes. Easy and tasty.

2. Pan Roasted Sea Bass:

With bass keep it simple. Pan roast a sea bass fillet until just cooked. Top with 2 butter sautéed dive picked scallops (bigger the better) and serve on top of fresh blanched garden peas. Gorgeous.

1. Butter-Basted Halibut Steaks with Capers:

Season halibut well. Heat oil in a large skillet, over medium-high heat until beginning to smoke. Cook halibut until golden brown, 6–8 minutes. Turn and cook until other side of fish until it is golden brown, about 4 minutes. Add butter, thyme sprigs, and fresh garlic to pan and cook, tilt the pan and spoon the butter over the halibut, until steaks are opaque throughout and butter is brown. Add a few capers (to taste) and toss in butter to warm through. Cant be beaten.

What do you think? Whats your top 5 sea fish to eat.
