Sustainable Eats

Fish Galore Ltd is a wholesale fish and seafood supplier based in Central Hove. They are committed to environmental factors and are discerning about the provenance of everything they sell. I was happy to find a source with integrity  for locally caught fresh fish and seafood, which is then expertly prepared by their team. It seems that it is “dealing” with fish which puts so many people off cooking it at home. A good fish monger will do all the cleaning, gutting, de-scaling and filleting for you.

The most important thing to remember when cooking fish is that the flesh is delicate. Too much cooking will ruin the fish, giving it a chewy texture. You should be looking for a slight rawness next to the bone as it is removed from the heat. Fish continues cooking while it is being served, ensuring the meat remains tender when it reaches the table. These next recipes are quick and easy to prepare and taste delicious! For a perfectly paired wine for both dishes, try the Slovenian Krizno Sauvignon Blanc.


Salmon with a Dill and Lemon Crust

4 Salmon fillets, each weighing 100g-150g

25g dill, roughly chopped

zest of 1 lemon

large clove of garlic, crushed

6 tbsp olive oil

Mix all ingredients together to form a paste. Spread the herb paste evenly over the surface of each fillet. Leave to marinate for at least two hours. Heat the grill and place the fillets on a metal tray. Place under the grill for about 4-5 minutes, depending on the size and thickness of each fillet. The dill crust should be slightly browned and the flesh soft and tender


Marinated Tuna Steaks

4 tuna steaks, each weighing 150g

8 tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil

1 tbsp sesame oil

6 tbsp light soy sauce

2cm chunk of fresh ginger, either grated or finely chopped

handful of fresh coriander, roughly chopped

Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a shallow oven dish. Place the steaks in the marinade , turning well to ensure they get a good covering. Put some foil over the dish and leave overnight or for a minimum of four hours. Heat up a ridged grill pan until good and hot (if you don’t have one, use the grill instead). Remove the steaks with a slotted spoon and grill in the pan for 2-3 mins on each side. Serve immediately.
