Origins

Our fishing vessels work out of Exmouth, Brixham and Newlyn, and operate in accordance with the Seafood Responsible Fishing Scheme. They keep us well topped up most days with a selection of fresh fish and shellfish, and a catch can often be on its way to the Greendale farm shop within hours of leaving the sea. If we can’t catch it ourselves, we source only from trusted suppliers with standards as high as our own. The fish available may vary, depending on the season, but a delicious variety is always to be found on our fish counter. From whole fish to fillets, live lobsters to shrimp, our wide selection is sold in a choice of portion sizes and prepared for your convenience by our skilled fishmongers.

Fishmonger's Tips

It seems the legends are true - oysters really are an aphrodisiac, thanks to the zinc and rare amino acids they contain. Give your oysters a tap before using them, as any that stay open are dead and should be discarded.

How to Cook

Received wisdom has it that oysters are best eaten raw, with a squeeze of lemon or a few drops of Tabasco. There’s no denying that they are indeed delicious eaten this way, but oysters can also be poached, steamed or grilled with equally tasty results.

Pan-Fried Oysters Recipe

Treat yourselves to a plate of these more-ish little morsels while they’re still in season. It’s worth seeking out Panko breadcrumbs if you can for this recipe – unlike other breadcrumbs, their unique texture absorbs less oil, with super-light and crunchy results.

Oysters – Yes you can!

Oysters – Yes you can!

In times gone by, oysters were cheap and readily available, and were used as a ‘filler’ ingredient in other recipes. As the supply dwindled through over-fishing, however, oysters became more and more of a luxury, and these days they are highly prized. Unfortunately, oysters also seem to be accompanied by a restrictive set of ‘rules’, governing everything from when to eat them to how to serve them – this often deters those who might otherwise have been happy to give them a try. This is a real shame; oysters are delicious, and in fact quite a few of the ‘rules’ don’t stand up to close scrutiny.
