In the 3 weeks we've been here, we've eaten, in no particular order:-
Mackeral filleted & pan fried
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
