    Watch how to crack a lobster

    Lobster – there’s nothing quite like it, especially when it’s freshly caught by our boats off the Devon coastline. Supplied cooked and whole, so no flavour is lost, it’s ready to be cracked, picked and dressed. Delicious! Watch an extract from our recent Facebook live event where Ethan, our fishmonger, shows you how we crack a Greendale lobster.

    Caper-Dressed Sole with Potato Salad

    This quick and simple recipe makes the most of delicately-flavoured Lemon Sole or Dover Sole, both unfairly underrated flat fish. You can make the salad well in advance if you like, though it is lovely when the potatoes are still a little warm – and fresh salad leaves are a must. Serves 2.
