From Boat to Plate - The Fishmongers

Featuring Michael Caines

Part 2 of our trilogy of films - From Boat to Plate - focuses on the Fishmongers. On a recent visit to Greendale Farm Shop, Michael Caines speaks to James the fishmonger about the importance of using local ingredients, noting freshness, seasonality, food miles, good value and a positive impact on the local economy as key factors. .

Scallops with Minted Peas Recipe

Scallops with Minted Peas Recipe

This delectable starter takes just moments to make – especially if you make the pea purée ahead, and reheat it gently while the scallops are cooking.

Pan-Fried Dover Sole Recipe

Pan-Fried Dover Sole Recipe

Planning a romantic meal for two? This delicious Dover Sole recipe is well worth a try; it may sound a bit fiddly, but the fish is actually pretty straightforward to cook (and the ‘fancy’ sauce is bound to impress!). Serve with your choice of steamed veg or salad.

Quick Crab Gratin

Quick Crab Gratin

At Greendale Farm Shop, we know the crab on our fish counter is super-fresh because it’s caught locally by the Greendale fishing fleet. This simple, fuss-free recipe comes highly recommended by Dave, the Farm Shop Fishmonger, as a delicious way to enjoy crab. Serves 2.

Why Greendale seafood is best

At Greendale we’re only interested in selling the best to our customers. Because we have our own fishing fleet, we can supply our fish counter with regular fresh catches that can be traced directly back to the sea. Operating in accordance with the Seafood Responsible Fishing Scheme, our boats work out of Exmouth, Brixham and Newlyn, and catch a variety of fish from Westcountry waters; 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, and we take great pride in ensuring that a delicious variety is always to be found on our fish counter.

Our Fleet

At Greendale we have our own fishing fleet, which means we can supply our fish counter with regular fresh catches that can be traced directly back to the sea. Our boats work out of Exmouth, Brixham and Newlyn, and catch a variety of fish from Westcountry waters; for example, our potting vessel, Becci of Ladram, keeps us well topped up with a selection of fresh fish and shellfish, while the Emily J, our scallop boat, is based in nearby Exmouth.

Salmon Coulibiac Recipe

Salmon Coulibiac Recipe

We think this fabulously tasty fish pie is well worth a little time and effort! It’s also a good one to have up your sleeve, as the uncooked pie can be made a day ahead and chilled in the fridge, or frozen for up to two months.

Greendale Scallops with Chorizo Recipe

Greendale Scallops with Chorizo Recipe

Fresh, sweet scallops pair deliciously with flavour-packed chorizo in this easy one-pan recipe. It’s worth laying the table before you start to cook, as it doesn’t take long!

Lobster Eggs Benedict Recipe

Lobster Eggs Benedict Recipe

Classic Eggs Benedict is a bit of a luxury in itself – but our lovely, locally-caught lobster lifts it to a whole new level.

Fresh Local Crab

Whole Crab, cleaned and cooked after being landed by The Becci of Ladram, one of our own boats. Cracking a whole crab may be something of a labour of love, but the delicious brown and white meat is a reward well worth waiting for! Hen crabs may be smaller than the male (cock) crabs, but what they lack in size they make up for in quality and flavour. The hen crabs have smaller claws, so have less white meat, but the brown meat they contain is sweet and makes for superb eating. Our ready-cooked crab meat is ready to use, in delicious salads, sandwiches, crabcakes, soups and more.
