Once underrated, Gurnard is fast gaining in popularity as word spreads about its firm white flesh and great flavour. Recognised as a more sustainable choice of fish, it’s also great value, easy to cook and really versatile.
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.
Gurnard variations include Grey, Red and Yellow – the skin colours may be different, but they all taste delicious.
Gurnard is delicious pan-fried or grilled, and – as a species that is also found in the Mediterranean - works brilliantly in a classic Bouillabaisse.
Suitable for freezing. Store in fridge and consume within 2-3 days of receipt, or freeze immediately.

Delicious Gurnard has long been popular in Mediterranean countries, but here in the UK we’ve taken a little longer to catch on! As well as being a more sustainable alternative to catches like Cod or Haddock, Gurnard is also now gaining recognition for its superior taste and succulent flesh. It works beautifully in simple recipes that allow its flavour to really shine – this easy foil-baking method does just that. Feel free to adapt the ingredients to include the herbs and flavourings you prefer (or have available). Serves 2.
