Fish Club

24 Feb

We are lucky to live within cycling distance of an award winning fish and chip shop.  Lucky because it’s close and lucky that we can exercise off some of the calories on the way home.  Fish Club isn’t any old run of the mill fish and chip shop, it is really special, what all fish and chip shops should be.

First, choose your sustainable, market fresh fish, then choose how you want it cooked.  Traditionalists can go for battered and deep fried, those looking for something healthier can have it grilled, or panfried.  You can then watch it being cooked in the open kitchen, the perfect entertainment for distracting hungry children, particularly if there are large flames involved.

On this occasion, Ned had a prawn and chorizo kebab, Eve and Dickon had a children’s portion of battered fish and chips and I had stir fried squid with chilli and garlic.  Everything was absolutely delicious, the batter light and crispy, the squid tender and spicy.

Pudding came courtesy of Lollipop sweet shop a few doors down the road.  We then cycled home across the muddy, wintery common fueled by a combination of chips and sugar.  A good day.

    May I just say I am jealous. Overwhelmed with green. I miss fish. 😦

      my father does a lot of fishing round your neck of the woods. Mostly rather muddy tasting trout.

    I am moving there too! We had fish for dinner but it wasn’t a patch on this fish extravaganza!

      Do you have fish and chips in Finland? I’m sure the fat would be good for keeping you warm…

    I’d have to ride there and back twice to help work it all off!

      it’s OK, you can have stir fried squid like I did, you don’t HAVE to have chips!
