Fish lovin'

Brought this lovely piece of fresh salmon for  £5 this week

Two chunky bits, baked with a chilli jam topping for tea. Yum, Yum.  One big fillet in the freezer for another day, and the tail bit and a trimming off the side in a bag to go with some other fish tails/bits in the freezer for a pie.

This nice long bit of cod was also just over £5,  divided into 4 portions ready for meals next week. last time I got haddock so cod is a nice change.  Also brought some expensive but giant prawns (£14 a kilo) as I love prawn dishes for the lighter meals of warm days (could they hurry up and come?).  I got some smoked mackerel too as someone was saying it was good for arthritis sufferers like my husband. 

I usually spend £15 to £20 on each visit to the fish market as it is a round trip of 12 miles and we combine the drive with other tasks to make it worth while. It is less expensive that the supermarket and I can chop it up to our size portions rather than buy ready portioned.  Also the guy knows me now and that I will buy a big fillet and not mess around with "bits" so I think he is a bit generous too!

Are you a fish lover?
