Also known as Cornish Sole, this previously underrated flatfish has come into its own in recent years. Megrim is a cheaper, more sustainable alternative to Dover or Lemon Sole, and tastes every bit as good as its posher-sounding cousins.
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.
Megrim is a deep-water flatfish, caught for the Farm Shop by the Greendale fishing fleet and landed at Newlyn Harbour in Cornwall. It’s a good, sustainable choice, as UK stocks are currently at healthy levels.
Megrim has firm, flaky flesh and a delicate taste, so it’s best cooked simply. Accompanying flavours need to be fairly subtle – we like to roast a whole fish and serve it with oven-roast cherry tomatoes or a lemon butter sauce.
Suitable for freezing. Store in fridge and consume within 2-3 days of receipt, or freeze immediately.
