In the 3 weeks we've been here, we've eaten, in no particular order:-

Mackerel BBQd
Mackeral filleted & pan fried
Mackerel Smoked
Oysters (bought)
Mussels (bought) in cider & cream
Cockles (foraged)in cider & cream/tomato & chilli
Bass (caught by neighbour) Panfried also steamed in foil on the bbq with butter/white wine/lemon & wild fennel off the beach.
Sand Eels, (caught) shallow fried
Spider crab, boiled it saved the meat, made a bisque with the shell & had it with pasta.
Lobster, donated by neighbour in exchange for smoked mackies.
Rock Samphire, it grows like weeds here, apparently they charge 15/kilo for it in London
Sea Kale, delicious, finely shredded & steamed with a knob of butter.
Wild fennel, great in Guacamole & fish dishes.
Just about to go picking Sloes now for the Christmas Sloe gin, the bushes here are laden, non at home

In 3 weeks, we've bought meat 4 times, the rest of the time we've lived off the sea. Heaven

Yeah .. my late grandfather refused to put his fingers anywhere near them when still in the pot... ours were all about 6 feet in length, and were usually the height of the barn door back home almost, and filled the whole base of the pot.

His technique was to put a knife in behind its head whilst in the pot to ensure it was dead before removal ... what a pantomime it was when he then made to get it out, and it 'twitched'

Now that is just totally unecessary.

Some of us are working and surviving on the best efforts of a 'Flip-flop chef' who manages to have wonderful spicy-smelling aromas emanate from his galley all day long but somehow contrives to prevent any of the herbs and spices infuse the contents of his pots and pans. We're convinced that he has his own personal pot of curry going on the stove but he denies it vigorously...

Anyway, you've set out the menu very well Dave but omitted to offer any wine recommendations. I'm sure a few chilled bottles of Chablis and Sancerre have been cracked open?

Totally jealous.

Great to see more people hobby potting and catching

Conger is one of my favorite eating fish simple cut in to steak's put in foil and pour in white wine cover over and bake in the oven.
Usually get a few each year in the pots biggest was just over 30lb in an inkwell pot but the last one was on home made mackerel feathers and 12lb main line - eel weighed in at 27lb .
Here it is from last week

Think the dog fish population here around plymouth has vanished just couldn't get any so settled with the eel .

Back home boat cleaned and away along with my still new looking pots .

Just about to start logging all the calls I have had whilst away . I thought we had done well with mackerel , crab and lobster caught backed up with bought muscles, scallop, haddock and halibut but not in your league Dave .
