Shellfish - short course
A lot of cooks worry about cooking fish and feel that they don't get the best out of it. This course will teach you all of the secrets to preparing great fish dishes. You will learn all of the key skills and techniques including gutting, filleting, pin boning, skinning, frying, grilling, and baking. We are also keen advocates of sustainable fishing and discuss many aspects of fish sourcing. We are keen supporters of the Marine Conservation Society and our recipes are published on their website.
The species of fish and shellfish handled during the course will vary by season but will typically include bass or bream, flat fish, mussels, mackerel, trout and one or two more unusual species. You will also get to try all of the fish during the day, including the preparation of your own fishy lunch.
